BlueStrata Chooses Armor for EHR Cloud Security and Compliance

Solution delivers monitoring and controls for sensitive and regulated HIPAA and ePHI data

 

RICHARDSON, Texas and NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Oct. 17th, 2016 – Armor, a leading provider of managed cloud security, has been selected by BlueStrata, an electronic health records (EHR) software company, as its security partner. BlueStrata’s EHR solution, on display at the 63rd Annual American Health Care Association and National Center for Assisted Living (AHCA/NCAL) Convention and Expo in Nashville from Oct. 17 to 18, is hosted and secured by Armor Complete.

 

“Healthcare operates on very tight margins, especially in post-acute care,” said Brian Mericle, Vice President Sales, BlueStrata. “It is one of the least reimbursed aspects of healthcare, which means that providers are forced to do more with less while still delivering the same level of care. This will become an even more pressing issue as the median age continues to increase. With our solution, secured by Armor Complete, we can ensure that our customers can overcome this challenge and maintain a sustainable level of dependable and effective care through enhanced performance and cost efficiencies.”

 

BlueStrata’s namesake product is a browser-based SaaS EHR software platform specifically designed for the long-term care. As the most comprehensive clinical and billing system in the industry, it integrates clinical, financial and point of care services to provide streamlined access and management of ePHI data regulated by HIPAA compliance standards.

Armor Complete enhances security and controls through fully-managed hosting services delivered through the world’s most secure cloud. BlueStrata can instantly monitor and defend their critical data and applications while also relying on Armor’s compliance expertise to meet HIPAA requirements. The solution was specifically designed to surpass demanding compliance standards and help customers remain “audit-ready” and secure year-round.

 

“The unique demands of long-term care place a special emphasis on data security, flexibility and compliance to remain efficient and profitable,” Jared Day, president, Armor. “BlueStrata recognized that they needed a partner to focus on cyber threats and complex regulations, so they can continue to deliver for their customers at a high level.
