Address HIPAA Compliance by Securing Electronic Health Record Systems and Patient Data


Healthcare organizations stand to realize many benefits by adopting cloud computing; however, given the sensitive nature of health information, data security is a top priority.


Recent changes by The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) strengthened HIPAA privacy and security protections which now encompass steeper fines, more onerous breach notification requirements and an expanded scope applying to business associates such as cloud providers.


Other federal programs such as the CMS Medicare Electronic Health Records (EHR) Incentive Program provide financial support to help healthcare organizations embrace meaningful use of their EHR and protect sensitive data.



The most effective way to protect patient data and address HIPAA requirements is to encrypt information so that, if a compromise occurs, the data is considered unusable and the incident is therefore not a breach.

Our solutions are designed to enable organizations to protect information across a range of deployment methods including private, hybrid and public clouds all from a single solution that will grow as your business systems evolve.
