What Is HIPAA Compliant Hosting?

When building healthcare applications, websites, and other services that utilize patient data or protected health information (PHI), organizations must comply with HIPAA regulations. Selecting a HIPAA compliant hosting provider is the first step to building a HIPAA compliant application. HIPAA compliant hosts provide servers and infrastructure that can be utilized with PHI. Organizations can use HIPAA compliant cloud services to build healthcare applications, software solutions, and manage process and utilize PHI.

Just using a HIPAA hosting provider does not automatically make your organization HIPAA compliant. Organizations must implement appropriate administrative and technical safeguards for ensuring compliance standards. Most HIPAA compliant hosting providers offer infrastructure that addresses HIPAA physical safeguards. Organizations may build healthcare solutions on this infrastructure but must be sure to develop applications that follow HIPAA administrative and technical standards. This means that organizations must have administrative policies in place and implement technical solutions such as backup and disaster recovery, audit logging, and vulnerability scanning.

Does Using HIPAA Hosting Make My Organization HIPAA Compliant?

HIPAA compliant hosting providers generally provide a signed Business Associates Agreement (BAA) and address HIPAA physical security controls. This means that the cloud infrastructure must be physically secured using locks, employee access to infrastructure must be limited, facility access and maintenance must be recorded. In addition to physical safeguards, HIPAA compliant hosting providers must have contingency plans in case of an outage or emergency and must notify clients in the event of a security breach.

Cloud service providers and hosting providers are responsible for HIPAA safeguards including:

  • Signed Business Associates Agreement (BAA)
  • Facility Access and Security
  • Facility Maintenance Records
  • Contingency Plans
  • Breach Notification
  • PHI Disposal and Reuse
