Medsphere Systems Corp., is taking its CareVue EHR to Amazon Web Services, the company announced March 8.

The expanded capacity gives Medsphere customers a platform-as-a-service to help drive down costs at community hospitals by eliminating the need for a local data center. CareVue Cloud on AWS is currently being deployed at multiple customer sites, the company noted.

"Our goal has been to balance out the tension between security and system access, and we're confident that CareVue Cloud creates peace of mind without putting unnecessary burdens on clinicians," said Irv Lichtenwald, Medsphere CEO. "After researching options, we became convinced AWS is the most secure and robust platform available to host CareVue Cloud, which we think will give our customers security and stability as they focus on clinical hospital programs."

Medsphere also added extra HIPAA protections, including an encryption, multi-factor authentication and disaster recovery.
