February 11, 2014



Austin, TX (PRWEB) February 11, 2014

OnRamp, a leading high security hosting provider with data center facilities in Texas and North Carolina, announced today that the company will exhibit its HIPAA compliant hosting solutions at the 2014 Annual HIMSS Conference and Exhibition, February 23-27, 2014, at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. More than 35,000 healthcare industry professionals are expected to attend the conference to discuss health information technology issues and view innovative solutions designed to transform healthcare. OnRamp will showcase its proprietary online HIPAA Risk Management Tool. Accessible through a specialized OnRamp healthcare portal, the tool is designed to assist customers in analyzing and managing their HIPAA compliance risk associated with their IT infrastructure hosted at OnRamp. The innovative online application was developed by OnRamp’s team of HIPAA experts as a “3-Step HIPAA Risk Management” process. It guides users through a series of questions to systematically analyze the services they can and should receive from OnRamp, helping them to identify and flag vulnerabilities, suggest remedial steps, and document a plan for addressing those vulnerabilities when collaboratively working with OnRamp to maintain a HIPAA compliant environment.

“Our HIPAA Complaint Hosting and Data Center Services are a great solution for many of the companies attending HIMSS that understand the importance of ensuring the privacy and security of healthcare data,” stated OnRamp Founder Chad Kissinger. “With the threat of legal and financial repercussions for noncompliance under the final rules issued for HIPAA and HITECH, it is imperative that businesses form relationships with 3rd party IT vendors, such as OnRamp, that understand the laws and are doing everything from the standpoint of their business to maintain the confidentiality, availability and integrity of e-PHI.”

The annual HIMSS conference in the U.S. ranks as one of the largest healthcare IT and management systems gatherings in the world. Attendees who participate in the 2014 conference can select from more than 300 education sessions in 20 peer-reviewed topic categories, enjoy a variety of networking events, and visit an exhibits floor filled with innovations and management solutions.

Keynote speakers confirmed for HIMSS14 include:



   •      Hillary Clinton, 67th Secretary of State of the United States; former United States Senator (NY); former First Lady of the United States

   •     Mark Bertolini, Chairman, CEO and President, AETNA

   •     Erik Weihenmayer, world-class blind adventurer

In addition to OnRamp’s presence on the exhibit hall floor at HIMSS14, the company has recently announced its co-sponsorship of the Texas e-Health Alliance’s “TeHA Huddle.” The Texas e-Health Alliance is the state's leading advocate, from local communities to the national level, for the use of information technology to improve the health care system for patients. The “TeHA Huddle” was organized to provide a meeting space for Texas-based HIMSS Attendees and Exhibitors to foster collaboration within the state.
