The HIPAA compliance solutions

Positive Behavioral Support is a research-based process that requires a great deal from caregivers and families. Open communication, shared goals and responsibilities and numerous interviews are all part of the process. Additionally, training for caregivers, the recording and review of data and direct observation of individuals are required for success.

CEO of PBS, Michael Nolan recognized that his organization was going through a growth phase. With it came increased costs, more limited communication and collaboration and a more difficult experience for patients. So, Michael decided to address the growing needs of his business and act. In December 2016, PBS partnered with Communication Square LLC, a Microsoft Gold Partner. They decided to implement HIPAA compliance solutions compliant backup and cloud data protection with the Operations Management Suite. Doing so proved to be an incredibly smart move for PBS, helping them avoid disaster in June 2017.

We are thankful to Communication Square for offering a brilliant solution to back up our data, which would have otherwise been lost or corrupted.

Chief Operating Officer

On-premises data storage brought PBS dangerously close to disaster in June 2017. Fortunately, they had implemented OMS Backup and Site Recovery. The move saved them from substantial losses in every facet of their business.

Benefits of HIPAA compliance solutions

Cloud Backup and Recovery Solution

With HIPAA compliance solutions, PBS was able to protect their application data. The data could be retained for years without any capital investment and with minimal operating costs.

Replicate On-Premises Data to the Cloud

With Azure Site Recovery, PBS’s workloads remain available during planned and unplanned downtimes. Additionally, replicating workloads ensures that all data is available from a secondary location. If the primary location goes down or faces interruptions for any reason, data remains available and accessible. Also, ASR contributes to disaster recovery by orchestrating the replication and recovery of on-premises Hyper-V virtual machines. This provides a simple failover and recovery plan for workloads. Finally, disaster recovery mechanisms such as SQL server Always On are integrated. This provides a range of recovery plans against workload failure that are tiered across multiple machines.

We backed up their data from both physical and virtual Windows servers, in addition to application workloads such as SQL server and SharePoint. With System Center Data Protection Manager, we were able to replicate their data to Azure for long-term storage.
