Online Tech Achieves HIPAA Compliance at All Data Centers: Online Tech has added HIPAA compliance to its growing list of successfully completed audits. Online Tech achieved compliance across all 54 HIPAA citations and the complete set of 136 audited components when audited by an independent Certified HIPAA Professional (CHP) and Certified Health Security Specialist (CHSS). The HITECH Act, coupled with sizeable fines enforced by Health and Human Services, has brought HIPAA compliance into sharp focus across the healthcare industry. Both the patient facing entities, and the business associates and IT vendors that support them, are all corporately and personally responsible for the protection, availability, and security of protected health information (PHI). The entire spectrum of health related companies – from hospitals and physician health organizations to Software-as-a-Service and electronic medical records (EMR) providers – must meet HIPAA compliance. Online Tech has lead the secure hosting market with a legacy of successful audits, starting with the SAS 70, SSAE 16, and SOC 2 & SOC 3 reports required on Service Organization Controls to meet Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance. With its growth in healthcare clients, Online Tech invested aggressively to achieve HIPAA compliant hosting to meet the increasing demand. Online Tech’s compliant data centers have already helped health care and health IT companies meet the HIPAA requirements of the HITECH Act. More at www.onlnietech.com or call (877)740-5028.
