Doctors Group Outsources HIPAA Compliant Data Center To Online Tech
The Ann Arbor data center operator Online Tech Inc. said Tuesday that Ypsilanti-based Michigan Multispecialty Physicians P.C. had selected Online Tech for colocation services and offsite data storage and backup.
“We were feeling the pains of a growing company and outstripping our data center capacity,” said Erik Yochum, director of IT for MMP. “We were facing electrical, heating and cooling issues as well as running out of physical space.”
By outsourcing its data center to Online Tech, MMP has experienced a return on investment increase on internal IT resources and the added benefit of having access to an experienced and professional support team.
Yochum said MMP’s IT staff costs are reduced by eliminating overtime or off hour compensation associated with supporting a data center around the clock. MMP can also keep up with new technology without the additional hardware investment.
“Now the space used for the data center can be used for other productive uses for the organization,” Yochum said.
By outsourcing to Online Tech, MMP upgraded to a Tier 3 data center with fully redundant power, network infrastructure and adequate heating and cooling. MMP chose Online Tech’s high availability power architecture with no single point of failure in power delivery — assuring a high level of server uptime. Online Tech also delivers HIPAA compliant hosting with all of the physical and network security features required to assure that a medical health organization can comply with the HIPAA privacy requirements.
