WOW… this is HUGE! We are, as far as I know, the only Cloud online data backup and Virtual hosted desktop provider to be HIPAA compliant. We did this for a few reasons.
1. Many clients, understandably, are concerned about thier information and it’s privacy.
2. It helps us as a company follow certain protocols and processes to ensure we are doing right by our MSP’s and thier clients.
3. I do sleep better knowing I am doing the right thing for all concerned parties.
Now, all that being said, it was not easy and we still have a bit of work to do like creating our Business Associate Agreement and proudly post that on our web site. By no means is that a major undertaking and I think all should have to comply with when dealing with electronic Personal Health Information and data security. Keep an eye out for the press release but you got it first right here.
