    HIPAA Compliant Cloud Hosting

    HIPAA compliant hosting solutions backed by 100% Audit Assurance

    HIPAA Compliance
    Despite headline-grabbing breaches experienced by leading healthcare providers and insurers, HIPAA covers very little in terms of security. Scan through the regulations, and you won’t find information as basic as firewalls or antivirus software listed. Since there is not a prescription for achieving HIPAA compliance, many providers have resorted to selling what they consider to be “HIPAA Compliance in a Box.” They bundle their various security services and claim that it achieves all of the HIPAA compliant hosting requirements.

    Why trust a pre-packaged solution, when you can rely on real HIPAA compliance expertise from Hostway|HOSTING?

    HIPAA isn’t about checking a series of boxes. It’s about measuring and managing risk through continuous assessment, evaluation, response, and reporting of threats to protected health information (PHI) – including the threat of downtime and/or data loss. That’s why leading healthcare organizations rely on the rigorous compliance management services that Hostway|HOSTING provides through our HIPAA Compliance as a Service.

    Hostway|HOSTING has the strongest security and credential credentials in the industry. We have always been dedicated to building and managing highly available solutions backed by multi-site disaster recovery and continual testing – services that most healthcare-focused providers are missing.

    • Hostway|HOSTING Compliance Risk AssessmentTM
      The Hostway|HOSTING Compliance Risk Assessment for HIPAA Compliance is conducted per the HIPAA Security Rule 45 CFR 164.308(a) (1) and 45 CFR 164 308(a) (8). It meets HIPAA and HITECH compliance requirements for covered entities (CEs) and their business associates (BAs).
    • Hostway|HOSTING 100% Audit AssuranceTM
      Having completed more than 400 customer security assessments at a 100% pass rate, Hostway|HOSTING is one of the few cloud service providers to offer 100% Audit Assurance. Hostway|HOSTING guarantees that certain compliance services provided to our customers will be able to pass assessments for several industry standard security frameworks and regulatory obligations for their hosted environments. In the event that those services become an impediment to compliance, Hostway|HOSTING will fix the gap at our own expense, or allow the customer out of its contract with no penalty and issue the customer a refund (up to one month’s service).
    • Comprehensive Business Associate Agreements (BAAs)
      At just three pages, the Hostway|HOSTING BAA is concise and to the point, clearly outlining each party’s rights and obligations with regarding to safeguarding PHI. Healthcare customers get the legal protections for HIPAA compliance without the administrative hassles they might experience with another cloud hosting provider during BAA negotiations.
