Gorman Health Group Selects INetU Managed Hosting for HIPAA-Compliant Hosting

April 13, 2010 by  

Web Host ToolboxWASHINGTON, DC and ALLENTOWN, PA – Gorman Health Group (GHG) announced today that they have chosen INetU as the dedicated managed hosting provider for their healthcare software platform, Valencia™.

Valencia is GHG’s innovative health plan enrollment and payment reconciliation software. Unlike other software available to Medicare health plans, Valencia ties workflow and reporting controls directly to the discrepancy engine, giving plans faster processing times, increased visibility into performance, and more compliant operations.

Because Valencia stores sensitive healthcare information, many critical factors presented themselves when it came time for GHG to choose a hosting provider.  A hosting company that could actively help GHG with HIPAA-compliant hosting was critical. Other  factors included  having a close partnership with their hosting company, an expert IT staff, high availability solution design , and SAS 70 Type II certification.

“Heath care in general, and Medicare contractors especially, demand the highest standards of HIPAA compliance and security,” said GHG’s Senior Vice President of Strategic Development, Nathan Goldstein. “INetU’s expert solution design and service make it easy for us to help our clients by delivering secure and scalable hosted solutions as part of their business plans.  We had over 2.5 million members on our software within weeks of launch and INetU made the launch simple and seamless.”

Enacted in 1996, HIPAA improves the health care system’s efficiency by encouraging the use of electronic data interchange.  Its Privacy Rules require that entities like health plans, most health care providers, and health care clearinghouses keep private health information protected:

“With HIPAA privacy laws, and especially the new HIPAA HITECH requirements for hosted data, it is important that health care-related services choose a hosting provider with proven experience in keeping patient data secure,” said GHG’s Chief Hosting Officer at INetU, Chad Mowery, “INetU’s data centers are SAS 70 Type II audited, Visa PCI certified, and EU Safe Harbor compliant. Our commitment to security, privacy, and 100% uptime is the perfect match for hosting the Valencia software package. We are also able to provide guidance to our customers to help them with complex compliance issues enabling them to focus on their core business.”
