Great news, Computhink can now fully help enable HIPAA compliancy due to a new strategic partnership with OnRamp’s HIPAA-compliant hosting. In case you weren’t already familiar, HIPAA (the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) protects the privacy and sets the standard for the security of electronic protected health information (e-PHI). The Privacy Rule and Security Rule (two big parts of HIPAA) establish strict standards for how companies working with sensitive patient data must ensure complete confidentiality, availability, and integrity. We know that HIPAA’s rules and regulations are extremely strict and can be overwhelming, so we’re here to help out all of you healthcare folks.
According to the HIPAA Privacy and Security rules, total compliance is required of both covered entities (aka any healthcare provider) and business associates (any company that comes into contact with e-PHI while preforming services for a covered entity, such as our new partner OnRamp as they host Contentverse). Since they follow strict rules in order to enable the possibility of HIPAA compliancy, you can rest easy knowing that your data is safe and can be fully compliant in Contentverse with a solution hosted by OnRamp.
We can all agree that it’s vital that your content remain private, and Contentverse handles that, too. There are administrative, physical, and technical provisions in place (in line with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services requirements) that are followed to a “T” with Contentverse. With the potential non-compliance penalty ranging from $100 to $1.5 million, it’s best to be sure you are following all HIPAA protocols so you aren’t surprised (in a bad way) when HIPAA knocks on your door. It happens all the time.
Want an example? Alright – according to HHS.gov, the highest costing HIPAA data breach to date (a settlement for $4.8 million) happened just recently. You’re probably thinking it happened because an entire hospital was being careless, right? Wrong. One physician with a personally owned computer server on the network did not have adequate safeguards protecting sensitive patient documents (yes, you read that correctly) and then a breach occurred. The entire lawsuit could have potentially been avoided if that physician had been using a secure document management program like Contentverse hosted by OnRamp. Don’t be like that one physician; let Contentverse help get you on the HIPAA compliancy track so something this horrific doesn’t happen to you or your organization.
Contentverse and OnRamp can help any medical, vision, or dental company be HIPAA compliant, opening up doors for your organization and making lives easier across the board. While this partnership enables HIPAA compliancy, you can rest assured that we’ve got you covered with regards to many other compliance regulations as well. If you’re curious about a certain one, feel free to send us an email and we’ll get right back to you.
