Fogo Data Centers and MI7 Corp Form Partnership to Improve Interoperability and Patient Data Security
February 20, 2017, Orlando, FL – Fogo Data Centers, a leading Healthcare IT cloud services provider, and MI7, a leading provider of health data liberation tools and services, today announced at the HIMSS17 healthcare conference that the two companies have partnered in an effort break down silos of data through secure interoperable data solutions, a major concern for healthcare organizations.

Fogo Data Centers helps migrate and hosts sensitive patient data held within electronic health record systems into Fogo's premier data security centers, providing redundant power, cooling, and high-speed internet connectivity with 24/7 monitoring mitigating risk, and providing the opportunity for secure data interoperability. and data security.

Esslinger, Jr., Chief Executive Officer of Fogo Data Centers. “The combination of MI7’s tools and our systems and facilities working together is a first in Healthcare IT and I believe a huge step towards solving our broken healthcare system.”
