HIPAA Compliant Hosting

Physiology of Fear Driving Healthcare IT – or Is It Real?

The healthcare cybersecurity market is expanding at an incredible rate. An April 2016 Grand View Research report projected that the scope of the industry would reach $10.85 billion by 2022. That may sound high, but it now looks like it was an underestimate: a February 2018 analysis released by Market Research Future predicts that health information technology (HIT) security will rise at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 22% through 2022, ballooning from $4.8 billion to $15.82 billion.

Blockchain Security & Compliance: Is This the Future?

The technology that pushed Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies into the public eye is a distributed ledger, better known as blockchain. This approach gives any entity that uses it an ongoing and dynamic transaction log. Over time, data is shared and compared to various other nodes, all of which continually have an up-to-date database copy. Auditing controls the adding of transactions to the database. By distributing transactions in this manner, you are able to remove single points of failure (SPOFs); prevent the controlling of the ledger from a single position; and verify all your transactions, with no need to utilize an independent service. All transactions are public, making it much less likely that the ledger is gamed to meet the needs of a nefarious party.

Why Do Medical Billing and Coding Companies Need HIPAA Hosting?

Medical billing providers and healthcare programmers cannot simply be satisfied with standard hosting, but instead should implement HIPAA-compliant hosting whenever sensitive health data is transferred server-side. This is because organizations like medical billing companies and healthcare programmers are business associates that have direct responsibility for compliance; because the expenses for breaches (which HIPAA hosting is intended to prevent) extend far beyond the fines; and because the definition of a breach is broader in recent years than it was prior to 2013.

How to Prevent a HIPAA Data Breach

In early October, Henry Ford Health System announced that it had been hacked and that the records of 18,470 patients had been stolen. On July 25-26, Arkansas Oral Facial Surgery Center was infiltrated by a virus that blocked the practice from being able to access images, files, and notes related to 128,000 patients. In September, Augusta University Medical Center announced that fewer than 1 percent of its patients’ records were stolen during a breach; however, this attack was the second phishing effort to work against the healthcare provider in just 5 months. These are just three of the most notable healthcare data breaches that occurred in 2017.

Why Do Biotech and Pharma Need So Much Computing Power in the Cloud?

For industries like biotechnology and pharmaceuticals, the true power of cloud computing is its ability to push the limits of computer processing to solve the greatest problems of today and tomorrow.

Both biotech and pharma firms are under intense public and governmental scrutiny and are tightly regulated. They also regularly use massive amounts of data as they trial new products, new cures and new solutions. What does the inside view of a biotechnology or pharmaceutical firm look like in the cloud? It’s a massive environment that is harnessing every technology available to change the world. Let’s take a closer look at how biotech and pharma firms harness the power of cloud computing.

Predicting HIPAA Compliance Trends for 2018 and Beyond

Kent Roberts February 28, 2018 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

Health expenses add up to nearly one-fifth of the gross domestic product in the United States: at $3.2 trillion, this segment represents 18% of the GDP. The transition to digital environments could lead to total cost savings of $300 billion, particularly related to chronic conditions. By lowering cost, digitizing healthcare effectively makes it easier to deliver treatment, improve quality-of-life, and save lives. However, healthcare technology is also tricky because of the parameters of healthcare law, especially the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology and Clinical Health Act (HITECH).

Why Personal Injury Lawyers Need HIPAA Hosting

Kent Roberts February 1, 2018 by under HIPAA Compliant Hosting 0 Comments

Attorneys are very familiar with the notion of having to keep information private and abide by the law. Still, even experienced attorneys might not be familiar with all of the specific details of HIPAA compliance, which means following all the guidelines established in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996.

Depending on the focus of a law firm, HIPAA compliance may only be an important concern in a small number of cases, since protected health information (PHI) is strictly defined. However, when PHI is involved, as is typically true of personal injury cases, staying compliant protects a firm’s finances and reputation.

HIPAA Compliant Cloud Storage with Encryption at Rest

The best HIPAA-compliant cloud storage is within an infrastructure that encrypts all at-rest data across-the-board, avoiding the costs of data breaches by meeting standards and proving adherence through third-party certifications.

Settlements for the violation of healthcare privacy and security laws outlined within the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) were at an all-time high in 2016. A total of $22.9 million was submitted to the HIPAA enforcement agency, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the federal Health and Human Services Department (HHS). The largest settlement ever under the HIPAA law, $5.55 million, was announced in August. There were 6 fines in 2016 that were $2.14 million or more. This trend continued in the new year, with a $5.5 million fine, nearly reaching the record settlement, announced in February 2017.
