Private Cloud Hosting Provider

If your organization operates in the healthcare or life sciences industry, your main IT focus is on control, security, and privacy of your electronic protected health information (ePHI). Add to that achieving compliance requirements, and you'll see why companies are choosing private cloud hosting solutions for the ePHI.

Here are six considerations to look for when evaluating private cloud hosting providers to ensure you'll achieve compliance.


When you choose private cloud hosting, your infrastructure and IT environment are completely separate from all other organizations hosted in the data center. You have separate hardware located in a controlled environment, while still being able to customize your configuration for the highest level of security.


Look for a private cloud hosting provider who offers superior performance as part of their standard solutions. You want that allow you to achieve excellent network performance for your customers, client, users, patients, and others.


Each healthcare or life sciences organization is unique, and you need a unique configuration to help you achieve and maintain compliance. A reputable private cloud hosting provider will customize your configuration to your business and IT systems needs. If a provider tries to sell you on an off-the-shelf solution, keep looking.


A private cloud hosting solution gives you better control over your ePHI, users, and other information to meet the HIPAA Security Rule's technical, administrative, and physical safeguards. It's easier to achieve and maintain compliance with a provider who makes compliance their core mission.

Audit Support

A reputable private cloud hosting provider will build in audit support in your solution. Whether the FDA, HHS or other regulatory agency calls for an audit, you need the support of your private cloud hosting provider. Look for one who includes audit support as part of their hosting solution.

24/7/365 Support

Look for a private cloud hosting solution that offers Network Operations Center support 24/7 every single day of the year. Be particular about where they locate their NOC; look for a data center with on-shore NOCs with live engineers who understand your configuration and can help you resolve your issues with one phone call.
