Two alliances aimed at helping healthcare organizations comply with HIPAA rules were announced Feb. 10 by StorageTek at the HIMSS conference. One, with consulting firm Stockell, is designed to offer practitioners a quick and comprehensive HIPAA Fast Path Gap Analysis. This offering provides a methodology to assist organizations in their efforts to determine whether they are meeting the requirements of the upcoming regulations. The alliance with Rorke Data, a subsidiary of San Jose-based Bell Microproducts, is meant to improve the medical industry's access to secure, scalable, open, and flexible data storage solutions. Through this alliance, StorageTek will extend its product offerings to a wider customer base within the PACS, HIS, and RIS industry segments.
