The Challenge

Workforce Analytics required an AWS Cloud Infrastructure for healthcare document collaboration. They were essentially looking for a partner who could deliver secure, HIPAA certified service on Cloud.

Our Solution

At 8K Miles, we converted the challenge the client was confronting into a strategic, high-return business opportunity, with our deep technology expertise and partnership with AWS.

Take it to the Cloud!

8K Miles came up with a highly responsive, scalable solution through Cloud Computing, with adequate security controls and data encryption facilities.

Workforce Analytics engages 8K Miles Software Services

Workforce Analytics, the New York based service provider, required an infrastructure environment to be set up in Amazon Web Services (AWS), to host a document collaboration and archival service for health care professionals who treat patients with developmental disabilities. A critical requirement for this service was that it must be HIPAA certified. The challenge for Workforce Analytics was to meet HIPAA compliance and HIPAA certification in a public cloud environment such as AWS.

Workforce Analytics engaged 8K Miles for its expertise in providing secure environments through AWS. 8K Miles engaged to develop the necessary controls and security measures to achieve HIPAA compliance—firewall, encryption, and controlled access.

8K Miles Solution: Take it to the Cloud!

8K Miles developed the complete infrastructure on AWS, in line with Client Requirements. In addition, necessary security controls such as network firewall for intrusion protection (IPS) and detection (IPD), denial of service (DDOS) attack detection and prevention were deployed. 8K Miles implemented Data encryption to protect the data stored on AWS in EBS volumes and S3, with key management on the customer’s premises. Necessary logging features, and utilized dedicated instances to meet HIPAA compliance requirements were set up.

In a strategic move, 8K Miles leveraged its partnership with AWS to procure a Business Associate Agreement for Workforce Analytics. Ultimately, Workforce Analytics was able to deploy their document collaboration and archival application, which enabled their health care customers to utilize their services in a secure, certified environment.
