BitTitan has recently launched MigrationWiz HIPAA Compliant. If you are considering offering solutions for US-based healthcare-related segments, please read on to see how HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and the HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health) Act impact your business and the risks of operating in this highly-regulated sector.
How do HIPAA and HITECH Act regulations impact my business?
HIPAA and the HITECH Act are a set of laws and regulations that apply to the use, transmission, and storage of electronic Personal Health Information (or ePHI) by healthcare entities and their service providers. HIPAA and the HITECH Act set out strict privacy and security requirements to which the entire supply chain must adhere. Breaks in the chain expose the responsible party to lawsuits and regulatory penalties.
If you are a solution provider whose business includes migrating, storing, or transmitting data for healthcare-related industries in the United States, then you must comply with HIPAA and HITECH regulations. In your role as a consultant to a healthcare entity, you are assuming responsibility for complying with HIPAA and HITECH and potentially, any liability that arises from noncompliance.
What does it mean for MigrationWiz
By selecting the HIPAA SKU when you submit a migration within MigrationWiz, you ensure yourself that all your data in transit will only be touched by HIPAA compliant migration servers. The full chain of HIPAA compliancy is guaranteed, and personal/sensitive information is only transported through fully encrypted connections through servers that reside in a documented HIPAA-compliant data center.
How do I get these SKUs?
