After much buildup, the new HIPAA regulations finally go into effect this week. As of February 17, 2010, Business Associates must be in compliance with the HIPAA Security Rule. HIPAA.com provides a good resource for all the rules and regulations related to HIPAA compliance with catchy titled articles such as “Know your 5010 from your ICD-10″.
How does Accellion help with HIPAA compliance? Let me count the ways.
1) Test results, medical images, physical examination reports, health insurance notifications, and all forms of personal health information, all fall under the HIPAA compliance requirements. Accellion provides the security and encryption to ensure the secure transfer of sensitive files containing personal health information.
2) Accellion provides comprehensive tracking and reporting of every file transfer to ensure that only authorized recipients may receive and access sensitive file transfers.
3) Accellion eliminates the need for unsecure FTP servers.
4) Accellion eliminates the use of unsecure USB sticks for sharing medical data.
Many hospitals and healthcare networks have already implemented Accellion managed file transfer to ensure HIPAA compliance – check out our healthcare customers here and in today’s press release.
