Leading patient portal technology company Bridge Patient Portal partners with AccelOne for IT security and cloud scalability services.
Bridge Patient Portal, a leading provider of cloud-based patient engagement and portal software for healthcare practices, hospitals and telemedicine businesses, today announced a partnership with IT security and cloud scalability experts AccelOne. AccelOne will be providing security audit services for Bridge Patient Portal (Bridge) to ensure that Bridge continues to meet the strictest security standards possible in order to safeguard Personal Health Information (PHI) which is contained within the patient portal.
While Bridge maintains ONC-ACB 2015 certification, which inherently has a strong emphasis on security, Bridge also conducts its own internal security audits and utilizes third parties such as AccelOne for ongoing security testing.
“We’re continually looking to ensure the highest level of security in our application,” says Bridge Patient Portal founder and CEO John Deutsch. “As an additional precaution, we work with other experienced companies to ensure our patient portal meets the highest standards for security available in the industry.”
In addition to security testing, AccelOne will also be providing Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud server scalability solutions and load testing for Bridge to ensure application performance in large implementations such as hospital networks and managed care organizations. As part of the testing process, Bridge will conduct advanced load tests, implement subsequent upgrades to its cloud servers, and enhance performance execution within the application code itself.
“It’s an exciting project to develop a cutting-edge solution where we are working with both an established platform and the requirement to meet stringent HIPAA security guidelines,” says Scott Craig, co-founder and CEO of AccelOne.
