Hosting Management and Security Take the Headaches Out of HIPAA Compliance.
As our business has grown, we’ve come to host many clients that transfer highly critical information that must remain confidential under HIPAA privacy standards. With this type of customer in mind, we have taken advantage of some of our industry-leading hosting tools to make HIPAA compliance-ready hosting easier than ever to attain.
What is HIPAA Compliance?
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed.
This includes covered entities (CE), anyone who provides treatment, payment and operations in healthcare, and business associates (BA), anyone with access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment or operations. Subcontractors, or business associates of business associates, must also be in compliance.
Access Hosting is not a healthcare company but has signed several Business Associate Agreements (BAA) with healthcare clients so that they are HIPAA compliant.
All of our Data Centers are designed to provide you with the tools to ensure compliance physically, environmentally and across the entire network infrastructure. Additionally, a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is available upon request for any of our dedicated and HIPAA compliant hosting solutions.
