Some of the most vital services consumers and enterprises know and interact with every day have been running through off-premise hosting solutions for decades. One example: banking and financial services around the world. All of the banks you know run large parts of their technology on securely hosted data centers.
That being said, specific rules, guidelines and best practices apply to PHI (Personal Health Information). UgenTec ensures that its platform supports compliance with guidelines such as GDPR, APP, HIPAA, and general industry best practices. Moreover, to ensure the highest security standards, UgenTec also implements the CAP/CLIA security guidelines.
In selecting a partner for our hosted solutions, we’ve opted for a PaaS provider that’s highly secure by design, and that has a track record of providing services to software companies that manage and process PHI (Personal Health Information). For example, Microsoft has a long history of developing highly secure & safe software for enterprises and medical device industry that allow customers to be HIPAA compliant.

Notable healthcare and diagnostics companies that use Microsoft Azure for off-premise hosting include Siemens Healthineers, Roche Diagnostics, Merck, GE Healthcare and the NHS Blood & Transplant (the national blood & transplant service for the United Kingdom).
