Cloud Computing and HIPAA – Are you covered?

August 9, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Cloud computing and HIPAA Compliance

Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) generally offer online access to shared computing resources with varying levels of functionality depending on the healthcare organizations requirements. CSPs services range from mere data storage to complete software solutions (e.g., an electronic medical record system) and much more.

Under the HIPAA rules when a Covered Entity (CE) engages the services of a CSP to create, receive, maintain, or transmit ePHI (such as to process and/or store ePHI), on its behalf, the CSP is a business associate under HIPAA.  When a business associate subcontracts with a CSP to create, receive, maintain, or transmit ePHI on its behalf, the CSP subcontractor itself is a business associate.
 Join our 50 minutes informational webinar to learn how to effectively take advantage of Cloud Service Provider( CSPs) for your practice needs and still be HIPAA compliant.
