Online Tech and Healthmaster Sign SaaS Hosting Agreement

School Health Record Software Moves to Software-as-a-Service Model

(PRWEB) March 23, 2010 -- Healthmaster®, the worldwide leader in electronic medical record software and Medicaid billing for schools, has signed an agreement with Online Tech to host their HealthOffice® Software-as-a-Service (Saas) platform in Online Tech’s SAS-70 certified data centers.

As school districts recognize that educators are becoming community partners in assuring the proper health maintenance and welfare of school-aged children; districts are realizing the importance of electronic student health record documentation along with the financial benefits and legal liabilities. Healthmaster has worked with school districts across the country to deliver cost-effective, state-of-the-art solutions to school nurses, special education service providers and health care professionals.

Healthmaster was experiencing the same pressures as many other software companies. School districts were asking Healthmaster to move from a client-server software solution, where the core software was loaded on servers and managed by each school district, to a SaaS model, where the software was centrally managed by Healthmaster.

The move to SaaS provides key advantages to school districts such as eliminating up-front licensing fees, server hardware purchases, and the bureaucratic obstacles involved in deploying new software through in-house IT teams. For Healthmaster, the SaaS model provides a predictable, recurring revenue stream for each school district they support.

One of the challenges Heathmaster faced with moving to the SaaS model was finding a hosting infrastructure that could offer 24x7 availability of their application to their client base. After researching a number of different hosting options, Healthmaster selected Online Tech’s managed dedicated servers to host HealthOffice, their enterprise software solution that automates school health offices.

“We selected Online Tech as our SaaS hosting partner to meet the demands of our growing school district customer base,” says Martin Smith, Healthmaster CEO. “Online Tech’s SAS-70 certification and world class data centers deliver the high level of assurance that our web-based student health application will always be online and available to our customers.”

As part of the agreement, Online Tech is delivering the entire SaaS hosting platform including fully managed hardware servers, 24x7 monitoring, operating system upgrades and complete management of any server issue that might arise. Each of Healthmaster’s servers are housed in one of Online Tech’s Tier 3 data centers designed to anticipate every potential power or network failures to eliminate the risk of any outage.

“Software-as-a-Service is quickly becoming the preferred delivery model for software,” said Mike Klein, President of Online Tech. “Healthmaster is a great example how a software company can transform its business to the SaaS model to meet new market demands for hosted, on-demand software services. We’re proud to enter into this partnership with Healthmaster to provide the underlying managed server infrastructure as part of their reliable, cost-effective solution.”
