On September 23, 2013 the HIPAA Omnibus Rule went into effect. This rule provides further clarification to a complex set of requirements. It also defines some potentially catastrophic penalties associated with a Protected Health Information (PHI) or Electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) breach.
Our clients who handle ePHI data need to ensure they have a security strategy and documented processes in place to comply with the Breach Notification Rule, the Privacy Rule, and the Security Rule. It can be overwhelming.
Through our HIPAA Compliant Hosting and Cloud Services, Layered Tech is able to help health care businesses offload a significant amount of the IT and business controls related to a hosting environment that contains ePHI data.
If you are attending HIMSS14, we would like to talk with you about your security and compliance strategy relative to the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. Please stop by and visit us on the exhibition hall floor in booths 6488 and 6486.
If you are not attending HIMSS14, we would still like to engage in a discussion with you. Please fill out your information on the Contact Us form and we will follow up with you.
