How to get started

Step 1 OVHcloud

Subscribe to your OVHcloud Hosted Private Cloud

HDS certification and HIPAA compliance are based on shared responsibilities between OVHcloud, you, and if applicable, any third parties involved in the project. An Hosted Private Cloud Healthcare platform can be used for personal healthcare data, once you have signed a specific contract to formalise these shared responsibilities.

Step 2 OVHcloud

Enable your Hosted Private Cloud

With its Hosted Private Cloud Healthcare solution, OVHcloud provides an optimal infrastructure for hosting healthcare data solutions. This specially-designed solution comes with a strict responsibility shared with the data controllers, linked to the sensitivity of the services and the data hosted. These cloud solutions are based on the VMware vSphere SDDC platform. If you are already a customer, your infrastructure is already compatible.

Step 3 OVHcloud

Scale up your infrastructure with additional bare-metal dedicated servers

By adding compatible dedicated servers to host your healthcare data, you can increase your storage capacity, performance and availability for resource-intensive big data applications in the healthcare sector. Choose from our catalogue of configurations that are approved for hosting healthcare data and 100% dedicated to your infrastructure, then manage them in the way that suits you.

Healthcare data solutions

What is HDS healthcare certification?

Both personal healthcare data and healthcare data solutions are particularly sensitive. They are a vital part of patients’ private lives, an important building block in the healthcare journey, and a useful tool for healthcare professionals. The regulator progressively defines the practices associated with rapid development of healthcare data solutions.

As a result, healthcare professionals, establishments and patients need to contact certified service providers for hosting personal healthcare data externally. Ministerial accreditation offers an additional guarantee in the ethical and financial domains, in terms of respecting patients’ rights and complying with data security regulations.

The legal framework for hosting healthcare data is based on article L.1111-8 of the public healthcare code, created by the Kouchner law (law n°2002-303 of 4 March 2002 relative to patient rights). Decree n°2006-6 of 4 January 2006 defines the accreditation conditions for healthcare data hosting providers using IT equipment. Its terms have been added to articles R.1111-9 onwards in the public healthcare code.

Currently, only our datacentres in France and Canada have HDS certification, but we will soon be receiving it for our datacentres in the UK, Germany and Poland.

Stronger collaboration between OVHcloud and healthcare professionals

With its Private Cloud Healthcare solution, OVHcloud provides an optimal infrastructure for hosting healthcare data solutions. This specially-designed solution comes with a strict responsibility shared with the data controllers, linked to the sensitivity of the services and the data hosted.

To achieve this, OVHcloud relies on a team of experts and a doctor specialised in hosting healthcare data. In addition to this, healthcare customers have access to the documentation they need to implement a secure and reliable healthcare information system.

We promise to ensure compliance with the legal and regulatory obligations in force, particularly with regards to personal data protection and healthcare data hosting. We also ensure that any service providers and processors are compliant. This commitment is reflected through the review of OVHcloud Healthcare customer contracts by a doctor from the hosting company, and the clause for customer audits outlined in the OVHcloud Healthcare Special Conditions.

OVHcloud maintains an increased level of security for healthcare data, in compliance with the very strictest legal and regulatory requirements in force. The measures we deploy are both organisational and technical. We focus particularly on data access control, high-level authentication, and the traceability of all operations carried out on the data. A confidentiality and security policy is formalised, implemented and evaluated.
