Healthcare Providers, Is Your Medical Data Secure in the Cloud?

Medical data is one of the hottest commodities on the black market, typically selling for approximately $14 to $25 per record. Because of this, healthcare providers must take advanced measures to protect electronic personal health information (ePHI), especially when storing data offsite in a hosted cloud facility.

Now it appears healthcare companies are finally getting the message about the need for heightened data security. InTouchMD, for instance, the leading provider of healthcare marketing solutions, recently partnered with Webair to establish a direct fiber connection between Webair’s flagship NY1 data center and InTouchMD’s headquarters in New York. The partnership makes InTouchMD one of the safest and most secure destinations for pharmaceutical industry data.
