The healthcare industry has traditionally been considered to be a slow adopter of technology—because of the significant number of legacy systems, combined with the amount of highly sensitive, personalized information. This positions the current models of healthcare under increasing strain while giving rise to the demand for an alternative solution. By transitioning to cloud computing, it would enable healthcare providers to have an efficient, cost-effective system and improve the quality of customer service. This is where eCloud Managed Solutions steps in with its gamut of solutions. “The interest for us is to get out there and help healthcare organizations take a fresh look at their technology stack and consider the public cloud,” states Eric Sanders, Co- Founder and Managing Partner, eCloud Managed Solutions. The company is a minority-owned business that offers a vendor-agnostic, consultative, and application-centric approach toward assisting clients in navigating through the complexity of cloud technology and helping them implement the best-suited platform for their IT and business needs.
eCloud delivers a HIPAA compliant cloud platform with a high-level of advanced PHI security measures. The company goes beyond cloud assessments—using proof of concepts (PoC) before implementing the ideal cloud platform for clients while ensuring scalability as per their requirements. eCloud’s cloud-based infrastructure provides industry-leading interoperability, business agility, performance, and advanced data warehousing capabilities across the health data management lifecycle. Thereby, providing a cloud strategy and roadmap to the client and significantly reducing the risk of interruption and cost involved in migrating to a new provider.

eCloud’s offerings encompass 24/7 monitoring of cloud environments, cost-analysis, notification alerts, AI features for remediation and skilled support technicians that constantly troubleshoot, provide remediation, and more. In a recent implementation of its cloud solutions, eCloud assisted a start-up healthcare company that built a web-based claims application on the Amazon cloud platform. The application was required to run at a high rate of performance while maintaining low latency between the application and the Amazon database, and the client expected the application to go live in six months. eCloud leveraged its expertise to build a deployment environment and workspace development servers for the client’s offshore development resources in India—at the same time, ensuring connectivity between the offshore resources and the Amazon VPC. eCloud built this application to be HIPAA and HITRUST compliant, encrypted at rest and in transit with a high level of security protocol configurations— alongside, training and educating the client to optimize the Amazon cloud platform. The firm ensured that the client’s application and end-user needs were met with a fully managed, scalable, and cost-effective solution. “That customer’s project is one of our best success stories and is still an ongoing managed services support account,” explains Sanders.
eCloud Managed Solutions acknowledges the benefits of the public cloud for enterprises and aims to focus on educating and informing its clients of the same. The firm is keen on bringing cloud computing innovations to the healthcare market with the intention to productize and deliver it to potential customers. As a result, the principle is to help clients operate efficiently and to optimize the investment that an organization spends toward the cloud strategy while maintaining compliance and security. In addition, eCloud utilizes its expertise in the cloud technology realm to analyze the disruptive and up-coming trends to consume next-gen innovations.
