HIPAA Compliant Data Centers

Dell Storage

The importance of healthcare providers to assure their patients the utmost security, confidentiality and integrity of their sensitive information cannot be understated. This means being HIPAA compliant within every aspect of their practice, with a particular emphasis on the components of their healthcare IT infrastructure

This white paper described elements and best practices of a HIPAA compliant data center. This comprehensive guide spans the administrative, physical, and technical safeguards of the HIPAA Security rule from the physical security and environmental controls necessary of the facility itself, to the requirements needed between a Covered Entity (CE) and the data center provider when outsourcing.

Detailing both the benefits and risks of a third-party partnership, this white paper provides answers to key questions such as what exactly makes a data center HIPAA compliant, what to look for when choosing a service provider to work with, and why a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) is important for establishing accountability with these partners.
