Plano, Texas, April 10, 2013 – VAZATA, a full service cloud infrastructure, managed services and colocation provider, today announced the addition of CIRPA, a leading radiology, CT imaging and diagnostics center, to its healthcare customer portfolio.

“VAZATA is honored to be selected as CIRPA’s preferred partner for data storage and disaster recovery capability,” said David MacGrandle, COO of VAZATA. “The healthcare industry in particular faces extraordinary challenges related to data security under HITECH and electronic personal health information (ePHI) regulations. We worked with CIRPA to architect a highly secure and fully scalable solution that addresses necessary safeguards to meet HIPAA compliance requirements while also reducing data storage costs.”

Dr. E. Hez Balch, CIRPA’s President and CEO, commented, “we chose VAZATA because of their ability to provide a cost-effective solution that puts compliance first and foremost in accordance with the very serious commitment we’ve made to protect patient data. We will not risk data loss or security breaches, period. During the evaluation process of this important project, VAZATA emerged as both a highly credible and responsive partner. Our solution will be supported by the same infrastructure that the U.S. Federal Government relies upon as it meets FISMA and HIPAA compliant criteria.”

VAZATA has worked with customers in the healthcare industry including county hospitals, imaging diagnostic centers and healthcare technology software providers to ensure confidentiality, integrity and availability of all ePHI data.
