Baltimore, Maryland – September 7, 2017 – Surgical Information Systems (SIS), a perioperative information technology vendor based in Alpharetta, Ga., and Edge Hosting, a leading managed service provider focused on secure and compliant business outcomes, will present a case study at the HIMSS Privacy & Security Forum, on September 11th at 4:15 p.m. The conference is being held at the Sheraton Boston Hotel from September 11-13 and is designed to provide business-critical information that CISOs and other healthcare information security pros need to better safeguard their organization’s data assets.

Doug Rempfer, COO, SIS, and Vlad Friedman, CEO, Edge Hosting, will present the case study titled “Accelerating Your Move to the Cloud.” The presentation highlights how Surgical Information Systems and Edge Hosting worked closely together to ensure compliance and security across systems without compromising performance, determining the right configuration of the latest technologies and how to design a flexible solution that can adapt to the demands of new technology acquisitions.

“Edge places a high premium on working hand-in-hand with its customers and I’m looking forward to attending the event with Doug,” commented Friedman. “From day one, Edge has had engineers on the phone who were truly interested in investing the time to learn what our software does and what our vision is. They partnered with us to figure out what our initial investment needed to be, and continue to support our ongoing cloud initiatives,” Rempfer added.

Edge Hosting is a signature sponsor of the event geared towards hospitals, healthcare providers, payers, government and academia.
