Keep Your Healthcare Business HIPAA Compliant with IDrive

March 22, 2018

In today’s digitized world, it is imperative for healthcare organizations to maintain medical records securely so as to prevent and minimize the potential adverse consequences of malpractice litigation. Medical records which are poorly maintained, incomplete, inaccurate, illegible or altered, create questions of fact regarding the treatment given or advised to a patient. These records are therefore highly sensitive and need to be maintained and secured well.

‘HIPAA’ or Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act is a United States legislation that safeguards medical information by providing due data privacy and security provisions. IDrive online backup assists healthcare facilities to comply with HIPAA regulations which include:

  • Data Recovery Strategy: To comply with HIPAA, all healthcare organizations are required to have a proper data recovery plan in place for handling data disaster scenarios. IDrive cloud backup offers state-of-the-art data protection with top notch physical and technical security features. Health organizations can archive their data for as long as needed with IDrive cloud backup services.
  • Restricted Access: HIPAA requires healthcare data to be accessed only by few authorized personnel to maintain privacy. Thus, keeping the confidentiality aspect in view, IDrive cloud backup offers unique data access criteria, strict administrative procedures and world-class technical security measures to prevent any kind of unauthorized intrusion into the stored data.
  • Encrypted Data for Storage & Transmission: As a HIPAA mandate, hospitals or healthcare facilities should always use encrypted data while transmission as well as while storage. IDrive cloud backup helps health organizations to comply by the same with its 256-bit AES military-grade data encryption feature.

Besides, HIPAA compliance is not the only convenience with IDrive online backup, there’s much more!
