Cloud EMR and azure virtual servers case study cover

The Client

The client is a private practice medical practitioner with 4 branch offices all connecting to an Electronic Medical Records (EMR) Application called YorkMed on a local Windows Server in the main office.

After multiple expansions, they realized their security was lagging. The setup was no longer compliant with PIPEDA or PIA.

They also wanted cloud options to make server access easier for their satellite offices.

The Challenges

1. PIPEDA compliance required.

2. High risk industry for a breach or ransomware infection.

3. No computer security or endpoint management in place.

4. Branch office VPN connections were not secure.


What we did.

1. Migrate server to Azure Cloud

to provide central storage and eliminate the physical server hardware cycle

2. Use VPN to access Azure Virtual Network

All VPN endpoints are secured and managed.

3. Enroll devices in Azure Active Directory (AAD)

to authenticate users, deny unauthorized access, create security policies, and apply policies and permissions to each user based on job function.

4. Enroll devices in Microsoft InTune

To secure and manage all devices accessing company network and data.

5. Enable Disaster Recovery

All Azure servers and virtual desktops have Disaster Recovery enabled. In the event of a failure, devices can be rebuilt in minutes.


Results + positive impacts.

PIPEDA Compliant

The client is in compliance with their regulatory requirements.

Scalable IT Systems

Their virtual network allows them to setup additional branch offices with ease.

Information Protection

With Endpoint and Identity Management, users are verified, and access is restricted. Data is safer.


Their resilience to ransomware and cyber threats has increased significantly with IT security best practices in place.

Fully Managed IT Systems

With TUCU's Managed IT Services, everything is taken care of.
