High patient demand, fluid HIPAA compliance regulations and the rapid adoption of mobile devices by healthcare departments have generated unprecedented amounts of patient data. While this protected health information (PHI) is designed to help healthcare professionals provide smarter treatments, it often ends up in disparate storage systems which hinder collaboration among departments. The HOSTING Healthcare Cloud enables healthcare departments to eliminate data silos, allowing them to manage patient data in a smarter, more cost-effective manner. This can lead to better collaboration, smarter treatment decisions and enhanced patient care.
The HOSTING Healthcare Cloud is a suite of secure, compliant solutions that enables healthcare organizations to seamlessly share data, streamline operations and reduce unnecessary costs. It delivers HIPAA compliant hosting that exceeds regulations for the protection and accessibility of critical data including electronic medical records (EMRs), electronic protected health information (ePHi) and electronic health records (EHRs). The HOSTING Healthcare Cloud includes the following features:
Disaster recovery and emergency mode operation plans
IDC predicts that by 2020, nearly half of digital healthcare data will be unprotected. Given the increased value of PHI on the black market, it is estimated that 50 percent of healthcare organizations will have experienced between one and five cyberattacks in the previous 12 months.
The HOSTING Healthcare Cloud ensures that data remains secure and accessible to authorized healthcare providers 24 x 7 x 365 – even in the event of a natural or manmade disaster. The HOSTING Cloud Recovery Service transparently replicates an organization’s entire operating environment to any of our six HIPAA compliant hosting sites. It also includes the development, maintenance and ongoing testing of a recovery plan.
Data backup plans
HOSTING’s dedicated compliance team works with our data management experts to create customized data backup plans that ensure the integrity of ePHI with onsite, offsite and encrypted data backups.
Testing and revision procedures
The HOSTING Healthcare Cloud enables organizations to test and revise contingency plans without interrupting their normal operations. Customers can initiate failover tests at any time via the HOSTING Customer Portal™.
As a leading provider of cloud-based, HIPAA compliant hosting solutions, HOSTING makes it easy for healthcare organizations to track, record and monitor compliance in a co-managed environment. Every obligation under HIPAA and HITECH and the draft HHS OCR Audit Protocol controls is outlined. Organizations are able to track and manage their own compliance objectives – even for systems and components outside their hosted solution.
HOSTING understands the costs and complexities involved in migrating disparate healthcare data storage systems to a secure, HIPAA compliant hosting provider. Which is why the HOSTING Healthcare Cloud is backed by our proprietary 100% Audit Assurance guarantee. HOSTING also proactively engages in Business Associates Agreements (BAAs) with any of our covered entity (CE) customers and necessary subcontractors as a standard practice.
