Are you confident your chosen data center is HIPAA complaint? If you’re not exactly certain what constitutes a HIPAA compliant data center or are relying on your IT provider to determine compliance, you need to read a new e-Book by ByteGrid, HIPAA Compliance in The Cloud: The Complete Solution for Compliant Cloud Hosting.
Whether you’re a covered entity or a business associate under HIPAA requirements, you need to secure the individually identifiable electronic protected health information (ePHI) in your databases.
