Various marketing sites argue for the power of customer-sourced content, suggesting that individual remarks and questions can create great material for other users. After all, the details of a situation may be unique, but the general concerns tend to be shared by others, at least those within the same industry.

The healthcare industry is growing fast, and with it is the sector that specializes in Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act compliance, a.k.a. HIPAA compliance. This form of compliance is critical for healthcare plans, providers, and clearinghouses: it allows the US Department of Health & Human Services to know businesses are safeguarding patient information. Specifically, HHS verifies that businesses closely interacting with protected health information (PHI) safeguard it in the manners described by the Privacy Rule and Security Rule of the law’s Title II.
HIPAA is the US’s answer to protecting vital patient data, but are there international “HIPAA” protections for Europeans, Canadians, and other countries – a sort of HIPAA in Europe or Canada? Although healthcare hosting compliance is a major concern of any businesses handling, storing, or transferring healthcare data in the United States, working with personal patient data of Canadian or European patients is subject to different rules. Let’s look at how the European Union’s (EU’s) Directive on Data Protection and Canada’s Personal Information Protection and Electronic Documents Act (PIPEDA) regulate patient records and other sensitive information.
Consultant (continued): By adding the second server we also had to increase the cost of the daily backup since there is more storage involved.

In our Real World Scenario (RWS) series, we review interactions between our consultants and clients considering various hosting options. One of our specialized points of focus is healthcare IT, so our RWS articles have covered numerous situations in which medical organizations – practices, plans, or data clearinghouses – are seeking solutions that meet their needs.
As providers of HIPAA compliant hosting infrastructures, we publish as much information as we possibly can to help healthcare companies understand the law and find appropriate solutions, whether with us or another company. Along with describing this information generally on our site, we also publish Real World Scenario articles (such as this one) on our blog, allowing customers to see compliance in example real-life interactions between our representatives and customers.
Healthcare companies must be in full compliance with federal regulations in order to avoid fines. The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) contains law applicable to the handling of protected health information (PHI) by healthcare plans, clearinghouses, and practices. Title II of the act includes a Privacy Rule and Security Rule, which are of special concern to covered entities when working with business associates – such as web hosting companies – on their IT architectures.
Our site shares a large amount of information with medical companies about finding viable HIPAA Hosting and infrastructural solutions. We’ve found that the general information we provide meets the needs of many businesses. However, it also assists many professionals to be able to get a feel for the process through specific situations.
