Newport Beach, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2013
As of today, covered entities and business associates must be in compliance with the HIPAA Omnibus Rule. The final omnibus rule represents the most significant changes to the HIPAA Privacy and Security Rules since they were first implemented. TrueVault aims to help healthcare organizations and their business associates become HIPAA compliant.
Healthcare providers, healthcare clearinghouses, health plans, and their business associates need to be HIPAA compliant by September 23, 2013. This includes covered entities, anyone who provides treatment, payment and operations in healthcare, and business associates, anyone with access to patient information and provides support in treatment, payment or operations. Subcontractors, or business associates of business associates, must also be in compliance.
Fortunately, there are a number of solutions available to help with the new HIPAA compliance requirements.
TrueVault provides HIPAA compliant storage for PHI. “Think of TrueVault as your application's backend,” said TrueVault Co-Founder and CEO Jason Wang. “You build your software on top of TrueVault and leave the regulations to us.” TrueVault handles the Technical and Physical Safeguards as outlined in the HIPAA Security Rule. TrueVault is not HIPAA compliant hosting, and it is not a HIPAA compliant Dropbox. TrueVault is a backend-as-a-service designed to save hundreds of development hours and alleviate the headaches that existing companies experience while setting up a HIPAA compliant data center. TrueVault provides a simple REST API that can be used to store and retrieve any amount of data at any time from anywhere on the web.
