Healthcare, HIPAA and HITECH Regulation Compliance
Storing sensitive patient data is becoming more regulated by government agencies, both at the state and federal level. The most common regulations encountered in the healthcare industry are the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act.
HIPAA was designed to promote the use and exchange of electronic personal health information (ePHI), as well as to safeguard that data. HITECH further enhances HIPAA regulations by providing incentives to adopt HIPAA and adding civil or criminal penalties if HIPAA is not followed.
Since PHI data is universal in the medical world, HIPAA must be universally observed. If your practice fails to observe regulations, you could face stiff financial penalties or worse. Remote Data Backups will ensure your backup solution is HIPAA compliant.
