Our belief is that the only definition of HIPAA compliance that counts is the one from the Department of Health and Human Services, and that is why we have been independently audited against the guidelines of their HIPAA audit protocol. Otava was the first HIPAA compliant hosting provider in the United States, so when we say we’ve been doing this longer than anyone else, we mean it. We sign Business Associate Agreements and will share our audit report upon request, so you can exhale knowing your ePHI is secure.
All of our clouds are encrypted at the core, protecting patient data, without sacrificing performance. The security of your ePHI is fully managed by our staff, who receive regular HIPAA compliance training in addition to our other physical, technical and administrative safeguards. See? it is indeed possible for patient data to be secure in the cloud.
If you’re dedicating more of your space to patient-centric use or need HIPAA compliant offsite backup and disaster recovery options, get Otava colocation, complete with our HIPAA trained staff.
