racksquared_HIPAA_blog_img_0619_2In today’s modern world, digital innovations are enabling healthcare organizations across the globe to reduce cost, boost competitiveness, while also allowing quick access to data in real-time. With the introduction of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, we’ve seen a complete shift in the past decade with more and more healthcare organizations investing in technology and services to protect their company’s data.

What Makes a Data Center HIPAA Compliant?

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) sets the industry standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Data centers must have certain administrative, physical, and technical safeguards in place, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Organizational requirements, including the ability to sign a Business Associates Agreement, are another crucial consideration in becoming a HIPAA compliant data center.

Security and Compliance

HIPAA violations can result in severe consequences, including fines of up to $1.5 million, criminal charges, and jail time. No organization can afford to weather the costly penalties, or loss of revenue associated with a HIPAA violation. At Racksquared we can provide healthcare organizations with highly secure solutions to back up and protect critical medical information. Organizations rest easy knowing our data center conforms to the highest standard of data regulations to keep personal information safe.
