HIPAA Compliance Data Center

HIPAA Compliance Data Center

Los Angeles, CA - (February 7, 2012) With its newly installed dedicated firewall, designed to prevent network threats and unauthorized access to sensitive patients' health records, Colocation America says its clients are now more secure than ever. “Our HIPAA compliance means that we have the most secure data centers that offers the highest protection against attacks and loss of data to any operator within the healthcare industry,” said Colocation America’s Business Development Director, Albert Ahdoot.

In order for a data center to be HIPAA compliant they must first pass a rigorous audit ensuring that the facility follows the Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) set by HIPAA inspectors. The inspectors take a detail look into the inner workings of a data center to confirm that any and all data stored inside is protected and only available to those authorized to view it. They also check to see if a Business Association Agreement (BAA) is made between the hosting provider and clients with data that is protected. Any violations of a patient’s PHI are reported to the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). A Business Association Agreement binds employees of both parties to report any such violations. The HIPAA certification also provides training for data center technicians which require them to follow specific and proper data center HIPAA compliance protocols.

In Colocation America’s quest to meet the needs of their clients, they offer a comprehensive selection of data storage and management options. Ahdoot explains that, “these flexible solutions range in terms of cost and complexity, but all are designed to provide adequate storage capacity and scalability at competitive prices.” Furthermore, he adds that is one of the most important factors that must be considered before deciding on a colocation provider. From virtual private networks to high-end firewalls and all the other necessary security features in between, Ahdoot believes that by being HIPAA compliant, Colocation America can offer the best protection for their client’s organization, practice, patients, and clinics.
