HIPAA Compliant Web & Email Hosting

Web & Email Hosting that Complies with HIPAA Requirements and HHS Guidance

In the healthcare industry, a security breach that compromises the security or privacy of protected health information is expensive and time-consuming. As patient-provider and provider-to-provider interactions increasingly occupy the online space, healthcare organizations need a HIPAA-compliant hosting provider that provides reliable security and performance.

The best way to save time, effort, and achieve fully compliant solutions is to work within a fully HIPAA compliant structure. At Medical Web Experts, we have developed an integrated structure for compliant solutions for keeping electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) safe and secure. The confidentiality, integrity, and availability of ePHI collected and/or processed by Medical Web Experts is ensured via appropriate safeguards as specified under the HIPAA Security Rule. We sign Business Associate Agreements with all our clients and are regularly independently audited.


What is HIPAA Compliant Hosting?

HIPAA IT for Healthcare

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 and the subsequent HITECH Act of 2009 were enacted to ensure patient privacy, security protections for health information and confidentiality while creating the foundation for the use of advanced technologies by healthcare providers. Every time a patient fills out a contact form, every time members of your medical team forward case information over email, and every time you enter information into a patient portal, HIPAA requirements need to be considered. The server where this information is stored - and how it’s processed during transmission - are critical aspects of remaining compliant within your organization to protect your patients’ ePHI.


Best Practices Compliance Checklist

The following checklist is what we recommend for HIPAA compliant hosting. Use it to assess your organization's current level of compliance and see where you can improve:

  • Private cloud environment
  • Staff trained in HIPAA security
  • FIPS 140-2 O 27001, FedRAMP, and the Service Organization Control Reports (SOC1, SOC2, and SOC3) certifications that ensure integrity and safety of patient data
  • Secure offsite backup for data security in case of breach or disaster
  • Redundant systems
  • Business continuity plan in the event of disaster
  • Firewalls and web application firewalls (WAFs)
  • Login with two-factor authentication
  • Business associate agreements (BAAs) signed with contractors and subcontractors
  • SSL certificates for encryption of data in transit
  • 256 bit AES encryption for data at rest
  • Email archiving and discovery services
