What HIPAA means for you and your business
HIPAA. You may recognize these letters. You may even know what they stand for, but either way you're almost certainly concerned – confused even - about what it means for your MSP business.
The bottom line? If you’re an MSP or IT Support company working with the data of US-based healthcare clients, it’s your business that shoulders the responsibility for ensuring that their data is secure, protected and available when needed.
What you need to do
MAXfocus has produced a 'HIPAA Readiness' pack to help take the pain and worry out of HIPAA including:
- a comprehensive whitepaper by HIPAA expert Fabian Oliva that provides background on what HIPAA means for your MSP business and what you need to do to comply
- a configuration and hardening guide that shows you how to configure MAX software so that you’re compliant
- a BAA (Business Associate Agreement) that we are very happy to sign with you should you need it - please contact your account manager details.
Yes - our Backup, Remote Monitoring and Mail solutions lay the foundations that enable you to provide that security, protection and availability - but it’s up to you to demonstrate HIPAA compliance to your customers, and furthermore, it’s law.
Still not convinced? There’s a high cost of HIPAA violations - security breaches have increased over 32% over the past year in healthcare organizations costing an estimated 6.5 billion dollars annually - getting caught out is not an option.
