ByteGrid’s validated datacenters offer healthcare companies an easy way to take advantage of the cloud without putting their PHI at risk. We’re pleased to announce that Adventist HealthCare has partnered with ByteGrid for HIPAA compliant cloud hosting.
ByteGrid is the premier compliant hosting provider, and the first data center to achieve EHNAC accreditation. There’s a lot that goes into compliant hosting, and few, if any, other providers have put everything in place like we have.
ByteGrid is the world’s first cloud hosting provider to be certified for HIPAA compliance under the EHNAC OSAP accreditation program. We’re #1 in HIPAA compliant hosting, because we’ve been committed to HIPAA compliance from day 1.
EHNAC lists accredited HIPAA cloud hosting providers on their website. Look for datacenters that have the OSAP Data Center accreditation. You won’t find many, and there’s a reason: It takes more than a set of servers and SSL certificates to achieve real HIPAA compliance. There are extensive controls required to make sure that a cloud solution is HIPAA compliant from top to bottom. Without this assurance, you’re at risk for failing an OCR audit, or worse, suffering a breach.
Always audit-ready, ByteGrid's HIPAA compliant hosting solutions help protect you from security failures and expensive legal actions. Our datacenters are EHNAC accredited, which means we’ve proven that we’re doing it right – not just once, for a brief third-party audit, but over time, under intense scrutiny.
In our last post, we talked about how well ByteGrid’s EHNAC-accredited systems responded to NIST’s assessment for cloud-based EHRs, as given in the draft version of their Practice Guide, “Securing Electronic Health Records on Mobile Devices.”
In this post, we’ll look at how ByteGrid can help EHR vendors align themselves with this guide, too. The table below lists some of NIST’s questions, and some of our recommendations for compliant solutions.
NIST’s draft Practice Guide, “Securing Electronic Health Records on Mobile Devices,” was released July 28th. Though only a draft, we thought we’d take a look and see how it addressed HIPAA compliant cloud hosting.
On July 28th, NIST released a draft of their Practice Guide, “Securing Electronic Health Records on Mobile Devices.” The guide comprises 5 volumes, and is intended to take a modular format that allows it to be deployed as a whole, or in parts. In this blog, we’ll give you an overview of the guidance. Later, we’ll show you the guide’s specifics for cloud-based EHRs.
At ByteGrid, we focus on the facts about HIPAA compliance. If you’re searching for information about HIPAA compliance, you’ll notice there’s a lot of fear-mongering going on out there. It’s true that you can’t leave compliance to chance, and that compliance failures have cost companies millions. However, it’s also true that there are some clear, straightforward steps you can take to protect yourself and your organization. In this blog we’ll walk you through some of the simplest steps to avoiding overwhelming penalties – even if you do suffer a breach.
ByteGrid was one of the first datacenters to recognize the need for dedicated compliant hosting services. We know that it takes more than encryption to build systems that truly serve these customers’ needs. We built our state-of-the-art datacenter for HIPAA compliance from the ground up.
As the premier provider of HIPAA and GxP compliant cloud hosting, ByteGrid helps companies avoid security and compliance pitfalls. Health care and life science systems need special consideration, and we’ve built our company specifically to make sure that these systems can be deployed safely in the cloud. HIPAA and GxP compliance is what we do. We only offer services that are compliant with HIPAA and GxP requirements.
