BitTitan removes the barriers for the healthcare industry to move to the cloud
KIRKLAND, Wash. – March 18, 2015 – BitTitan, the IT change automation expert for cloud-based migration and onboarding, today announces its cloud-based email and data migration solution, MigrationWiz®, is the first and only solution of its kind to provide migrations compliant with both the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The solution helps partners meet and exceed their healthcare customers’ HIPAA requirements, removing significant barriers and enabling them to move to the cloud.
For solution providers whose business includes migrating, storing, or transmitting data for healthcare-related industries in the U.S., compliance with HIPAA regulations is a must. While companies take great care in purchasing HIPAA-compliant cloud services, migrations are often overlooked. Solution providers and companies need to consider the full chain of events when moving to the cloud and ensure the transition is also compliant. The trusted and proven MigrationWiz solution is the first automated migration solution that meets and exceeds the HIPAA criteria, taking the regulatory overhead out of the migration process. Via the familiar MigrationWiz interface, partners can add the HIPAA-compliant option to any migration project type, including mailbox, data, public folders, and personal and enterprise archives.
To comply with all requirements, BitTitan hosts a dedicated and segmented computing infrastructure for healthcare customers and guarantees that only HIPAA-compliant data centers and servers process company data. BitTitan also provides a dedicated point of contact to ensure customers receive the highest level of security during each migration. As proof of HIPAA compliance, BitTitan also provides a Business Associate Addendum (BAA) contract addendum, required for all external service providers that may come in contact with electronic Personal Health Information (ePHI) data.
“Staying true to our reputation as the cloud enablement provider and an expert on handling data in the cloud, the new HIPAA-compliant migration service enables partners to remove obstacles and open the door to new opportunities with healthcare providers wanting to move to the cloud,” said Nicholas Wolfe, legal counsel for BitTitan. “Not only can partners show their customers that they too are concerned with safeguarding ePHI, but they can also immediately address the compliance concerns as they are bidding on cloud projects without taking on unnecessary risk themselves.”
