Total Cloud Services
The main focus of the cloud is to maximize effectiveness, cut down costs, and provide better stability. But where is it? What is it?
In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. Anything stored on your computer’s hard drive is considered “local storage”. With the cloud, there is no local storage. For it to be considered “cloud computing” you need to access your data over the internet. The biggest benefit is you can access your information anywhere, anytime.
What the normal consumer will never see, is the “other end”. The big massive data infrastructure that is being maintained 24/7/365. In order for the cloud to work, it has to be maintained with various amounts of redundancy, it has to have numerous backups, and of course…security.
In December 2013, Tier3MD expanded its service to provide a robust, secure environment for your electronic patient health information. Our infrastructure is designed to scale up to any level, at any time. Our facility is HIPAA secure and certified, and our equipment is top of the line. We offer affordable pricing for any size practice so they can experience the benefits of safe, secure data that they can access anytime, from anywhere. All you need is an internet connection to experience all these benefits. Gone are the days of implementing a new server every 4-5 years, rotating tape backups and taking them off site. No more need for a “server environment” with adequate cooling, no sprinkler system, and a vented door. You no longer need to be concerned with your server crashing, or losing your backups, or having to put in some sort of redundancy. The cloud is exactly for this reason. Affordable, scalable, safe and secure.
Total Cloud Services is a certified, secured provider that can protect your data, while giving you the stability of never having to worry about down time. If you are thinking of moving to the cloud, you may want to review the 5 most important steps.

Security Risk Assessment
If you have Patient Health Information (PHI, or ePHI) then you need to protect it. It’s as simple as that. You need to know HOW to protect it and what the requirements are. Tier3MD will perform a Security Risk Analysis that will meet the core requirements for Meaningful Use under the HIPAA security Rule.
HIPAA Security Rule
§ 164.308(a)(1)(ii)(A) Security Risk Analysis (required) "Conduct an accurate and thorough assessment of the potential risks and vulnerabilities to the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information (ePHI) held by the covered entity."
In order to meet the requirements for Stage 1 meaningful use, it is required that you have a security risk assessment performed at your practice. If you checked the box “yes” on your attestation, and have not had this completed, you will need to have the assessment done on your practice. This is a very comprehensive process that not only assists you in being compliant, but what should be considered to be “best practice” for any medical entity.
If you are wondering why you should do this, the quick answer is, it is the LAW. As with any law, fine and penalties will apply. Many websites, including HHS.gov, the AMA, etc. are filled with HIPAA laws and requirements. Sorting through, understanding, and implementing all of these laws and what is required of you can be quite challenging. Because of this, Tier3MD has created a comprehensive plan to make sure you are in compliance with every HIPAA security rule.
