Healthcare Organizations Turn to Carbonite's Secure Cloud Backup Solutions for
Rose City Urgent Care and Family Practice Benefits From Carbonite's Automatic
and Continuous Data Backup
BOSTON, March 25, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Carbonite, Inc. (Nasdaq:CARB), a
leading provider of backup and recovery solutions, today announced that Rose
City Urgent Care and Family Practice in Portland, Oregon, has selected
Carbonite to help ensure the security and confidentiality of its stored data
as required under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
Carbonite's implementation of appropriate administrative, physical and
technical safeguards helps ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and
availability of stored protected health information (PHI).Organizations such
as small physician practices and dentist offices need an affordable backup
solution that is easy to implement and maintain, but that provides the
appropriate security measures to guard against unauthorized access.
Carbonite's Server and Pro for Workstation solutions are designed to meet
these privacy, security and notification safeguards – while working in the
background. Carbonite's solutions for businesses back up an unlimited number
of computers, external hard drives, NAS devices and Windows servers for a low
Rose City allows practitioners to use their own methodology for treating
patients, resulting in many provider-specific forms, charts and documents on
practitioners' computers. Ken Johnson, Ph.D., president and chairman of the
board at Rose City, handles all of the IT needs for the practice and
implemented Carbonite to back up all of its mission-critical server
information, as well as each provider's individual computers.
"The thing I like most about Carbonite is the continuous backup," said
Johnson. "If something changes, it automatically gets backed up – we can't
wait until 2 a.m. to run a backup. It means the difference between losing very
important data and actually having it protected so we can access it, which is
very important for a small business."
In the first year using Carbonite, Dr. Johnson was able to recover completely
from the accidental deletion of a directory, which would have been devastating
to the medical practice. He was also able to recover data easily from a drive
failure and restore all of the data from practitioners' computers that
experienced hard drive failures.
Dr. Johnson has benefited from the following features:
*Automatic backup: Carbonite backs files up as soon as they are changed. In
the busy medical world, backup needs to be real time.
*Security: Carbonite partners with his medical office as a Business
Associate, and will provide a Business Associate Agreement to customers
who are Covered Entities.
*Affordability: Carbonite helps protect small businesses at a price that
fits their limited technology budgets.
"Carbonite allows me to focus on my role as president of the practice without
having to worry about backing up our data," said Dr. Johnson. "I can focus on
growing the business and helping the community."
