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.
Whether your company is a Business Associate, or a Covered Entity, the HIPAA Omnibus Rule has a significant impact on the policies and security measures in place for your hosting environments.
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.

When was the last time you dialed an 800-number for customer support or chatted with an online support rep about a product or service you’re using? As I type this post, call center agents for major corporations are handling tens of thousands of calls, e-mails and chat sessions. That’s a lot of customer interactions at any given time, and each customer engagement is important and must be treated personally. Some of the world’s largest brands, including Priceline.com and eBay, rely on customer service solution provider KANA Software to better manage their ever-increasing customer interactions. Ballooning customer interaction volumes put pressure on IT infrastructures, which is what drove KANA to re-evaluate the infrastructure it had in place.

It’s undeniable – cloud computing and virtualized environments have evolved into enterprise-worthy infrastructure solutions. But for enterprises, putting their data at risk on shared public servers still presents a security challenge they can’t overlook. From our experiences working with enterprises of all sizes, we know that while they all have different business goals, they all have the same cloud environment needs: enterprise-class security, choice and flexibility.
