Healthcare providers, insurers, and clearinghouses, with their vast purchasing power, are increasingly looking to the cloud for information technology solutions. For cloud service providers (CSPs) to tap into this enormous market, your cloud offerings must be HIPAA compliant. A key business decision for healthcare CSPs today is how best to build and maintain a HIPAA compliant cloud. For many CSPs, finding the right HIPAA compliant cloud hosting provider is the fastest, most efficient, and most reliable solution.
Healthcare cloud service providers are in most cases considered "business associates" of the healthcare providers, insurers, and clearinghouses that they serve. Per the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act of 2009 (HITECH), business associates are subject to the same HIPAA compliance IT requirements as the HIPAA covered entities themselves. In short, HIPAA compliance for IT requires organizations that store, process, or transmit electronic personal health information to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of that data. Toward this end, HIPAA mandates a comprehensive set of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards.
For CSPs targeting the healthcare market, building and self-hosting a secure cloud that complies with all these standards can be a big drain on resources. And failure to do it exactly right can result in costly fines, or worse. A better course for CSPs is to utilize the services of a proven HIPAA compliant cloud hosting provider.
