Industry Leader Participates in Statewide NCHICA Events in Charlotte and Raleigh
RALEIGH, N.C. (March 18, 2011) – Peak 10 Inc., a managed services company with world-class data centers, is pleased to announce that it is participating in the North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance Inc.’s “Health Information in the Cloud” educational series. Held in Charlotte on Mar. 15, 2011 and Raleigh on Mar. 21, 2011, the events draw CIOs, CSOs, CFOs, CROs, privacy and security officials, IS/IT directors and compliance officers from across North Carolina. Peak 10 is leading one of the key Raleigh sessions, and will be highlighting the implementation of successful cloud-based business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.
“Many healthcare organizations do not have comprehensive disaster recovery plans in place and often the ones that do have processes have never fully tested them,” said Marilyn Finfrock, the vice president and general manager of Peak 10 Raleigh. “The risks to these companies are enormous and our presentation will help executives identify those threats and develop real-world cloud-based solutions to better protect themselves.”
As part of Peak 10’s presentation, different best practices and mechanisms will be outlined for replication and failover processes, all while considering the security requirements of the modern compliant healthcare infrastructure.
“Cloud infrastructure can often be utilized to reduce recovery time and simplify design,” added Bill Cashman, Peak 10’s solutions design manager. “All of these benefits are realized while typically lowering the overall costs associated with the infrastructure required.”
Because of its industry expertise, Peak 10 works with a growing number of healthcare-related customers including UNC-CH’s Emergency Medical Services Performance Improvement Center, etrials, Biosignia, Cumberland Pediatric IPA, Community Home Care and Hospice, Embark Healthcare Inc., Healthways, ContinuousHealth and Healthesystems. By leveraging Peak 10’s cloud services, healthcare organizations are able to have their mission-critical data and applications highly available and secure. In addition, Peak 10’s solutions allow customers to significantly reduce capital expenses and dedicate more resources to what is most important: focusing on taking care of their core business and customers.
