Verizon has expanded its network of data centers that offer cloud information and infrastructure management services to the healthcare sector.
The Healthcare Enabled Services portfolio includes enterprise cloud, managed hosting, colocation, intrusion detection and user-logs management, Verizon said Wednesday.
These services are now available from Verizon’s facilities in Santa Clara, Calif.; Englewood, Colo.; Carteret, N.J; Elmsford, N.Y. and Richardson, Texas, according to Verizon.
Richard Black, Verizon vice president of healthcare services, said the portfolio is designed to help customers store, manage and secure electronically-protected health information.
Black added the company designed its data centers offerings to comply with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act.
Verizon aims for clinicians to exchange patient records as well as radiology images by using the firm’s cloud technology.
The company also offers health IT services from its data centers in Miami, Fla. and Culpeper, Va.
