  • Keeping Cloud Data HIPAA Compliant

    Posted on July 29, 2013 by admin

    In early 2013, the Department of Health and Human Services issued their “Final Rule” to modify HIPAA. This ruling puts further regulations on cloud-based health data storage to keep patient information secure.

    HIPAA – that’s the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 – aims to ensure confidentiality of health information. These federal regulations for the safety, security and integrity of personal, private and confidential health information govern both electronic and paper records.

    The security and privacy requirements are getting more serious with each new modification. And for good reason: Both healthcare and financial data are prime targets for identity theft. This amounts to about $70 billion per year in Medicare fraud alone.

    To combat this, HIPAA is taking steps to regulate cloud storage. Under this new regulation, healthcare providers are required to use only cloud service providers who have signed a “Business Associate Agreement,” ensuring security as a priority. The estimated cost of compliance with this final rule is a staggering $114 - $225 million in the first year alone, with $14 million for each year thereafter.

    Consumer healthcare services are quickly moving online, storing patient data electronically; as healthcare data moves to the cloud, efficiency increases. But so does security risk.
