ClearDATA collaborates with Google Cloud to up security, compliance

by Thomas Dworetzky , Contributing Reporter
Texas-based ClearDATA has teamed up with the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) cloud hosting service to permit healthcare organizations to up their security and protection game.

“Our partnership with Google Cloud gives those wanting to innovate on Google Cloud Platform the chance to do so in a secure and compliant environment without fear of compromising sensitive health data, ultimately increasing their opportunities to advance healthcare and improve patient outcomes,” said ClearDATA CEO Darin Brannan in a statement.

Special-Pricing Available on Medical Displays, Patient Monitors, Recorders, Printers, Media, Ultrasound Machines, and Cameras.This includes Top Brands such as SONY, BARCO, NDS, NEC, LG, EDAN, EIZO, ELO, FSN, PANASONIC, MITSUBISHI, OLYMPUS, & WIDE.

Specifically, ClearDATA customers can skip the effort of manually creating settings and applying compliance regulations – and cut down on the likelihood of human error that could expose data in the process – by using ClearDATA Automated Safeguards for the Google Compute Engine.

In IT terms this includes “hardened images based on CIS (computer information system) benchmarks, data backups using automated snapshots, storage volume encryption, intrusion prevention, and enabled logging and log backups,” explained the company.

The move will let healthcare industry developers make use of the Google Kubernetes Engine – an open-source container system that permits the automation of deployment and scalability of applications on the cloud.

This means that via the ClearDATA compliance dashboard, the use of Kubernetes both allows a container-tech approach to application management and enables a clear view of the state of compliance with a variety of healthcare standards including HIPAA, GxP (general good practices) and GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).

When the company announced the release of its Compliance Dashboard on AWS (Amazon cloud services) in February, it stressed its ability to simplify audits and improve compliance visibility, the company said at the time.

The dashboard gives cloud users “continuous, at-a-glance transparency into compliance, with actionable insights on a user-friendly dashboard as they prepare for framework audits,” the company noted, adding that it is “mapped directly” to HIPAA and GDPR guidelines.

"The ability to easily provision our C2 Compliance Dashboard via AWS Marketplace means healthcare and life sciences companies experience commitment to a culture of compliance, but outside of the ClearDATA managed services Business Associate Agreement, and can have a view into their overall, and specific, HIPAA compliance in minutes," said Matt Ferrari, chief technology officer, ClearDATA.
