In addition, the U.S. health ministry mandates—through the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)—that all entities in the healthcare industry must save their data for 7 years and produce a disaster recovery plan. However, “as most hospitals still store their data in third party websites, server failure or data downtime often causes loss of valuable medical information,” says Krallis. SurDoc helps hospitals build their own private cloud, ensuring complete reliability and security of the data. Upon understanding the organization’s unique goals and existing storage environment, SurDoc offers their ‘unhackable’ cloud storage and disaster recovery solution. “We replicate and transfer all the high resolution medical images to a secure cloud through DICOM image storage solution,” mentions Krallis.
In a nutshell, with the ability to store unlimited amount of data, SurDoc’s SurLink ensures zero downtime and helps hospitals become HIPAA compliant. It’s a highly secure way to share medical data between doctors, patients, and other health professionals. SurDoc’s secure cloud services are reliable, scalable, and also affordable. “We help customers host data of up to 1TB in our cloud drive without any charge,” delineates Krallis. “We make medical data storage more economical for hospitals of all sizes.”
Apart from serving the healthcare imaging industry, SurDoc’s clientele of over 10 million spans businesses sectors including financial and gaming. Highlighting one of SurDoc’s success stories, a major academic hospital on the East Coast wanted to enhance the collective study on diagnosis and treatment under emergency conditions, utilizing patient MRI and radiology images. To achieve this, the hospital required a highly secure facility to save their study related resources. They also needed a way for physicians from remote locations to access the images in real time. Subsequently, SurDoc helped them in transferring all the radiology and imaging department data to a private cloud. The company also developed software to automatically share patient identities with physicians for academic purposes. Ultimately, “our goal is to give hospitals a tool to protect the data from malicious activities,” says Krallis.
