Compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) privacy laws are a source of great concern to businesses and healthcare providers as it relates to their data and data conversion. Two Point’s goal is to relieve that worry by providing a safe and secure data environment where all federal security requirements are met or exceeded, including top of the line encryption protocols for both data-at-rest and data-in-motion. Our goal is safe harbor.
HIPAA Security Rule Requirement
The HIPAA Security Rule instructs data professionals to implement “reasonable and appropriate measures” to safeguard protected health information (PHI). These requirements fall under three basic categories:
- Administrative Safeguards
- Physical Safeguards
- Technical Safeguards
Two Point implements the best available options to ensure safeguards on all data, not just PHI. Our data security standards are second to none and all or our staff is required to undergo annual training to ensure that our security policies and procedures are followed.
