Reasons to Keep Change Management in a HIPAA Compliant Cloud

Using "Cloud" applications allows companies to subscribe to software applications and outsource back-end infrastructure operations to a vendor (such as Amazon Web Services) that can do the job much more cost effectively. Large cloud vendors have the technology, security know-how, and economies of scale that even many Fortune 100 companies do not. As a result, companies can spread their IT budget across many more applications to support and grow their business operations, which will in turn contribute to higher profits.
Today, many security breaches are announced every day. It is an excellent security precaution to use a cloud change management system that is HIPAA compliant. Even if your business is not required to be HIPAA compliant, you can reduce risk by keeping your IT change management process in the cloud and selecting a vendor that is HIPAA compliant.
