HIPAA Compliant Server

Finding the Right HIPAA Compliant Server

Complying with HIPAA is hard. But compliance is necessary in order to protect individuals' healthcare privacy and to protect your organization from fines and negative press. For many HIPAA covered entities and business associates, procuring a HIPAA compliant server with a hosting provider is a cost-effective and convenient solution to the HIPAA compliance challenge.

What's Required of a HIPAA Compliant Server?

A HIPAA compliant server is a server that complies with HIPAA and particularly the HIPAA Security Rule for IT systems. Broadly, HIPAA IT compliance for a server or group of servers requires:

  • Physical and technical safeguards to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic personal heath data that's stored on or handled by the servers.
  • Administrative policies and procedures to advance those same data security objectives. HIPAA requires these policies and procedures to be documented and mandates compliance-oriented training for operational staff.

While physical and technical safeguards may be the most obvious requirements of a HIPAA compliant server, the administrative and operational safeguards are equally important. When choosing a HIPAA compliant hosting service, make sure that the provider has the requisite documentation and training elements in place.

Types of HIPAA Compliant Server

Beyond doing due diligence to ensure that a provider's HIPAA compliant server offerings are genuinely HIPAA compliant, your organization will need to decide which type of server or servers best fit your needs. Common types of HIPAA compliant server include:

  • Dedicated servers. With dedicated servers you get physical compute and storage resources that are exclusively for your own organization's use.
  • Private cloud servers. This solution provides physical resources that are for your use only, along with virtualization technologies that enable the elasticity and agility for which the cloud is known.
  • Community cloud servers. In a community cloud you share physical resources with other organizations that have similar needs, such as other organizations that must comply with HIPAA.
  • Hybrid platforms. In a hybrid infrastructure you mix different types of servers to best suit your needs, such as a mix of dedicated servers and community cloud servers.
