AUSTIN, TX – OnRamp, a leading high security hosting provider with data center facilities in Texas and North Carolina, announced today its Founder Chad Kissinger has been selected to speak on a panel at the 2013 mHealth Summit, December 8-11, 2013. Presented by HIMSS Media, part of HIMSS WorldWide, a cause-based global enterprise that produces health IT thought leadership, education, events, market research and media services around the world, the event will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center in the Washington D.C. area and will bring together over 5,500 healthcare industry professionals and 400 vendors for the largest mobile health event in the world. As a HIMSS Gold Corporate Member, OnRamp’s involvement in the mHealth Summit will help promote the company’s expertise in HIPAA compliant hosting solutions which help businesses maintain the confidentiality, availability and integrity of Electronic Personal Health Information (e-PHI).
In addition to showcasing the company’s high security hosting and data center services from Booth #731, OnRamp Founder Chad Kissinger will join in a paneled discussion entitled “The Policy Pillars of mHealth: Examining Various Policy Perspectives,” on December 9th at 3:45pm. The discussion will focus on a number of topics surrounding the evolution of federal policy as it relates to the mobile health industry, where Kissinger will highlight strategies for building effective HIPAA compliant relationships with IT providers.
In a sentiment expressed during OnRamp’s recent involvement with National Health IT Week (Sept. 16-20, 2013), Kissinger stated, “Traditionally, healthcare companies have been slow to adopt new technology or outsource the care and maintenance of their sensitive healthcare data. As a result, the healthcare industry, in many cases, has not been able to take advantage of the countless advances in technology.” He went on to comment, “Mobile health technologies are fundamental in transforming the way health is managed and healthcare is delivered, and by partnering with IT providers who understand the legal implications of storing and transmitting protected health information businesses can alleviate many of the concerns for HIPAA and HITECH.”
The fifth annual mHealth Summit event gathers healthcare and technology leaders from across the mobile health spectrum “to advance collaboration in the use of wireless technology [in an effort] to improve health outcomes, reduce costs and create a new paradigm in health care delivery in the U.S. and abroad.” As part of the event, attendees will have access to more than 100 education sessions in 15 topic categories, enjoy a variety of networking events, and visit an exhibits floor filled with mHealth and Healthcare IT related solutions.
