Contact us to discuss your customized data protection solution:

Disaster Recovery and Data Protection is critical for healthcare.

Armada Cloud recognizes that eliminating downtime, adhering to HIPAA rules and securing protected health information (PHI) is an ongoing challenge for hospitals, clinics, labs, and other healthcare facilities. The data that your IT department is responsible for is subject to stringent requirements and is critical to accurate and timely treatment, so data loss must be mitigated and recovery, when necessary, must be swift.

Armada Cloud's data protection and disaster recovery platform is designed to protect your most critical systems (such as HIS, RIS, PACS) and associated data (EHRs, PHI). Our data protection solutions are designed to satisfy your disaster recovery and mission critical objectives, using our advanced onsite and offsite systems. Additionally, Armada’s platform is ideally suited for addressing increased data retention requirements for administration systems and patient data. Armada’s platform includes Data Lifecycle Management components to ensure compliance with your organization's long term retention policies regarding RIS related studies, EHRs, or HIS archives.
