OKLAHOMA CITY - CoreVault™ announced today that it has received an exclusive endorsement from the Oklahoma State Medical Association (OSMA), which represents almost 5,000 physician members statewide. “This exclusive endorsement increases our presence and credibility in the medical community right here in Oklahoma”, says Jeff Cato, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for CoreVault.
“We are pleased and excited about the OSMA-CoreVault partnership. CoreVault can provide our physicians with peace of mind for a critical element of their practice--secure back up and storage of patient data" said Ken King, OSMA Executive Director
In recent years, escalation of natural disasters worldwide, increases in U.S. regulatory mandates like HIPAA and the high cost of human resources continue to constrain physician practices. If you combine those constraints with limited resources and daily growth of databases, a secure and reliable backup process becomes critical to the success of physicians’ practices. Despite these growing concerns, many businesses are still backing up their data manually on tape or disk in an unsecured manner.
“CoreVault™ assures OSMA members that their important data will be backed up daily, offsite and HIPAA compliant in the most secure, reliable and cost-effective manner. It is a major challenge for many physicians to get a daily backup done and preserved offsite, yet the financial impact of losing even a few days worth of work in the event of system crash would be significant.
CoreVault’s online services allow individual physicians to back up their server, desktop and laptop data, which is a major area of vulnerability for many practicing physicians today. Many of OSMA’s members have no dedicated IT staff and face increasing challenges with regular data backup and regulatory compliance. Larger physician practices that have already moved from a paper to electronic work flow system can benefit from our tiered service platforms designed to manage data and costs effectively on a long term basis. The bottom line is, CoreVault will help many physicians sleep better at night knowing their data is backed up with us.” said Cato.
CoreVault™ provides online data backup and recovery services that are automated and centrally managed to help businesses protect their data. Our solutions help companies with offsite protection, fast restores, regulatory compliance, increased security and world class customer service. In addition, CoreVault's two private data centers are geographically separated and possess redundant systems. For additional information, go to www.corevault.net/osma.
