Need to Comply with HIPAA? Consider a HIPAA Hosting Provider
For healthcare providers, insurers, and healthcare IT vendors, complying with HIPAA is both difficult and necessary. Particularly since the recent addition of HITECH to the HIPAA regulatory regime, HIPAA HITECH compliance failures can result in severe penalties. For many organizations, using a HIPAA hosting service is the fastest and most effective way to comply with HIPAA regulations.
First off, HIPAA hosting provides you all the conventional benefits of using an IT hosting service, such as:
- Avoidance of the capital costs associated with hosting applications yourself.
- A greater degree of system scalability and elasticity than would be typically possible with self-hosted architectures.
- The opportunity to build geo-redundancy into your service architecture, if the HIPAA hosting provider operates multiple geographically dispersed datacenters.
Why HIPAA Hosting?
On top of the generic advantages of using a hosting service, HIPAA hosting offers distinctive benefits stemming from the stringent demands of IT HIPAA compliance. For example:
- The strict security requirements of HIPAA and HITECH make it costly to build and maintain a HIPAA compliant server center. Consequently, the usual cap-ex benefits of using a hosting service are magnified in the case of HIPAA hosting.
- The HIPAA/HITECH regulatory regime is complex and evolving. Staying on top of the latest rules requires considerable time and effort. By using a HIPAA compliance hosting service you outsource this burden to experts, and enable your own personnel to focus fully on their core responsibilities.
- Using the right HIPAA hosting service can markedly reduce your risks of non-compliance.
