Securely connect multiple locations on HIPAA compliant encrypted network

Challenge

_____________________

Our medical practice client required secure interconnectivity between branch offices and virtualized on premise server clusters. All users authenticated and shared client, billing, and business data from various servers located in several locations. It was essential that the system be HIPAA compliant and maintain consistent connections, giving doctors and staff access to medical records and billing systems.

Solution

_____________________

Our team evaluated our client’s network security and speed requirements. After this assessment, we deployed a managed meshed VPN and isolated network for guests and devices requiring internet connectivity, but not access to sensitive patient data.

Result

_____________________

After managed firewalls were deployed to each location, users were able to connect to server resources as needed. Patients waiting for care were now able to connect to a secure and isolated network. Staff was delighted with increased speeds and reliability. We remotely monitored and adjusted firewall settings ensuring compliance, sustained performance, and security. These systems also assisted with identifying intermittent connectivity issues at one of their locations, saving considerable time while troubleshooting connectivity. This led to substantial improvements in system reliability, and overall practice security and better patient care.
