Solutions Built for Human Services

MediSked leveraged EagleDream’s expertise to architect, build, and launch their new environment in record time.

Driving Healthcare Innovation

For more than fifteen years, MediSked has been the trusted technology partner to human services organizations across the country. They are the leading brand in holistic solutions that improve lives, drive efficiencies, and generate innovations for human service organizations in our community.

CHALLENGE

The impetus for engaging EagleDream was twofold: expertise and time. With regards to expertise: MediSked’s environment, originally designed to use SQL Server Enterprise on EC2, needed to conform to the New York State Department of Health Moderate Plus System Security Plan (SSP). At the time, MediSked as a company had 15 years of experience building and operating hosting environments running HIPAA-compliant workloads, including in AWS. MediSked desired to supplement their experience with EagleDream’s expertise around building environments in AWS, compliant with these additional controls. In regards to time, the teams had less than three months to architect, build and bring live this environment. Working together, MediSked and EagleDream were able to accomplish this goal.

SOLUTION

The MediSked and EagleDream teams stood up a new production environment that was dedicated to a new set of clients who were going live July 1, 2018. Originally designed to use SQL Server Enterprise on EC2, MediSked and EagleDream were able to stand up the new environment using Amazon RDS instead.

Among the requirements, it was imperative that EagleDream setup the evironment to conform to the New York State Department of Health Moderate Plus System Security Plan (SSP), which itself is based on NIST 800-53 r4, the Center for Medicare and Medicate (CMS) Acceptable Risk Standards v2.0, Center for Information Security (CIS) Top-20 Critical Controls and NYS Information Security Policies and Standards.

The teams were on a tight timeline, with the need to launch the environment by July 1, 2018, and they successfully architected, built, and launched the environment ahead of schedule, in less than three months.

In order to best educate MediSked on the final solution, EagleDream conducted several in-person trainings with their technology team. This training was a key piece of the engagement as it ensured their team was fully immersed in the solution.

Results

MediSked and EagleDream successfully architected, built, and launched the environment in less than 3 months.

Key Benefits

Icon-Cost

cost savings

Originally designed to use SQL Server Enterprise on EC2, MediSked and EagleDream were able to stand up the new environment using Amazon RDS instead, minimizing MediSked’s dependency on expensive software licenses.
Icon-Security

Environment security

Built and maintained entirely using CloudFormation Scripts, the team can easily view audit trails and historical documentation of all changes that are made to the environment. An integration with Centrify added an additional layer of security support.
