QTS Expands Free Cloud Conversion Program to Clinical Organizations

Atlanta, Ga., Dec 12, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- Following the September 2012 launch of SaaS Enablement for healthcare software vendors, QTS (Quality Technology Services) is extending its free cloud migration services to clinical organizations. As one of the nation's leading providers of data center solutions, QTS' free service includes the migration of clinical organizations' existing on-premises healthcare applications to a HIPAA-compliant cloud in just 30 days.

With cloud delivery services from QTS, clinical organizations can mitigate privacy and security risks and consolidate data repositories - all while managing the growing cost of IT. Transitioning healthcare applications to a cloud-based delivery model will prepare clinical organizations for mandatory quality reporting, EMR and billing software upgrades that must be in place when ICD-10 begins in 2014.

QTS provides clinical organizations such as ambulatory surgery centers, medical management companies and community hospitals with a quick and affordable path for migrating legacy on-premises medical applications to the cloud via a free pilot. Critical medical applications are delivered leveraging QTS Cloud Services, a robust, secure and fully-redundant HIPAA-compliant cloud management solution. Mission-critical and life-critical healthcare applications are continuously and securely available from any web-enabled device.

"QTS offers a practical, cost effective solution to managing legacy healthcare clinical, business and financial systems' data," said Christopher Kunney, former CIO, Piedmont Healthcare. "No capital expenditures, no additional data center infrastructure, reduced application support and capacity on demand are just a few of the benefits the cloud migration solution can offer. IT leaders can now focus more internal resources on implementing and managing the most current HIT investments while older technologies can be accessed on demand, with their life cycle managed in a more commoditized fashion." As an industry leader in HIPAA compliance, QTS is leading the transition of on-premises healthcare applications to the cloud. QTS provides best-in-class availability, security and compliance while migrating existing applications to the cloud at a pace that makes sense for each individual organization. QTS' Cloud Services team works closely with a clinical organization's existing IT departments or software vendors to ensure a smooth migration.

In addition to the benefits of increased security, privacy, operational efficiency and cost savings, QTS Cloud Services can help facilities qualify for federal bonuses and grants under meaningful use guidelines. Hosting healthcare applications in the cloud allows clinical organizations to more easily integrate disparate systems used in coordination of care activities and provides the end user with 24/7 access to monitored and secured data from any web-enabled device.

Interested medical management companies, ambulatory surgery centers or community hospitals can sign up for the free 30-day cloud migration program for clinical organizations at
