Managed Cloud  Services

Azure Cloud and Microsoft 365  services that deliver scalability and cost efficiency with reduced risk

Enabling healthcare innovators and specialty providers through managed cloud services with expert operations, security, and compliance management

Managed Cloud Services Designed to Meet Healthcare’s Needs

Leveraging data and applications in the cloud provides healthcare organizations with a cost-effective path to scaling operations, but managing security and compliance in cloud environments is not exactly the same as traditional IT. Finding a partner that understands your unique challenges and will help you achieve your goals while mitigating risk is key to success.

Clearwater’s Managed Cloud Services for Azure provides design and implementation guidance, but the ultimate value is the 24/7 operations and oversight by healthcare experts. These services enhance your ability to achieve cloud security, maximize performance, and maintain compliance as you grow.

Cloud Confidence

While cloud platforms come with inherited controls for HIPAA/HITRUST and other compliance standards, they don’t cover all of the responsibilities needed to ensure security and compliance for your organization. Clearwater manages all of these responsibilities on your behalf in the cloud environment, so you can be confident knowing you have the expertise to protect your organizations’ ability to provide care and deliver innovative solutions. Planning, design, implementation, continuous monitoring, and optimization are all covered by a team that is committed to serving the needs of the healthcare ecosystem.
