Pyramid Healthcare, Inc. announced today an agreement with Applications2U (A2U), a full-service IT consulting and cloud hosting provider. With the help of A2U, Pyramid Healthcare plans to move its data to cloud-based technologies.
The Pyramid Healthcare treatment network consists of 12 brands, over 80 facilities, and 1,700 employees across three states. By moving all currently decentralized data to the cloud, employees of Pyramid Healthcare and all its brands will be able to access company email, data, and resources from any device, anywhere, and at any time.
This move also increases data security and protects Pyramid Healthcare from potential ransomware attacks, viruses, and malware.
The shift to cloud-based technologies will begin in December 2016, with an expected completion date of early March 2017.
Jonathan Wolf, CEO of Pyramid Healthcare, commented, “Pyramid Healthcare is dedicated to providing both its employees and clients with the best experience possible. Additionally, we need to provide a data environment that offers the highest degree of protection of healthcare and other information. We believe that a move to the cloud will bring state-of-the-art technology to the Pyramid Healthcare treatment network, and we look forward to working with A2U to implement this change.”
“It’s exciting to be able to say that one of the largest behavioral healthcare providers in the country chose us as their trusted advisor to make their transition to the cloud. This new partnership attests to A2U’s extensive knowledge and understanding of the unique demands of healthcare IT,” said Dan Dillman, CEO, A2U.
