Online Backup HIPAA Compliance

The HIPAA Privacy Rule creates national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other personal health information and to give patients more control over their health information. It sets limits on the use and release of health records. It establishes safeguards that providers and health plans must implement to protect the privacy of health information. The Privacy Rule provides that, in general, a covered entity may not use or disclose an individual’s healthcare information without permission except for treatment, payment, or healthcare operations. If your company is not a Health Care Provider this does not mean you are exempt from HIPAA requirements. If you are unsure check with an attorney that specializes in HIPAA compliance or take a look at the Sarbanes-Oxley website. MyDiskBackup's
