Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) April 28, 2015
Edge Hosting, the nation’s leader in secure, scalable and transparent managed hosting services, today announced the culmination of annual auditing against the Security Rule of The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) and The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. The third party auditor concluded “that the applicable trust services criteria and Administrative, Technical and Physical Safeguards associated with the Security Rule of HIPAA were met and operated effectively” throughout the annual testing period.
Edge Hosting is a trusted Business Associate and managed hosting provider to Covered Entities who manage electronic Protected Health Information (e-PHI) or provide services to companies that manage e-PHI. The opinion of the third party auditors substantiates that Edge Hosting maintains the trust of Covered Entities by ensuring that the Administrative, Technical and Physical Safeguards associated with the HIPAA rule are securely designed and effective in their operation.
“Electronic Protected Health Information is some of the most personal and private information that any organization can retain on an individual. For Edge Hosting, the sense of duty to securely maintain e-PHI goes far beyond an audit. However, the audit is clear and documented validation to Covered Entities and individual persons that the trust they have placed upon Edge Hosting is more than just words, but action and effort.” said Mark Houpt, Chief Information Security Officer at Edge Hosting.
CliftonLarsonAllen LLP conducted the audit following the Office of Civil Rights (OCR) audit protocol. The OCR HIPAA protocol analyzes processes, controls, and policies pursuant to the HITECH Act. The audit covered Edge’s administrative safeguards, physical safeguards and technical safeguards. In addition, the OCR HIPAA audit included the testing of organizational requirements and policies, procedures and documentation requirements.
