SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) June 16, 2015
OneNeck® IT Solutions, a hybrid IT services provider of colocation services, cloud computing and managed services announces the company has successfully completed the HIPAA and HITECH examination.
The examination included review of OneNeck’s adoption of the essential elements of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act Security Rule of 2003 (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH). As part of the examination, the security program OneNeck has in place for colocation services and related controls were examined. The overall results determined that OneNeck’s information security program has adopted the critical components of the program, including:
- Administrative safeguards
- Physical safeguards
- Technical safeguards
- Breach notification
The scope of the examination included the colocation services at OneNeck’s data centers in Eden Prairie, Minn.; Fitchburg, Wis.; Gilbert and Tempe, Ariz.; and Waukee, Iowa.
“Successfully completing the HIPAA and HITECH examination shows our commitment to protecting our customers and ensuring that their patient data is both protected and remains private,” said Clint Harder, CTO and senior vice president of Cloud and Managed Services at OneNeck. “Our healthcare customers expect us to mitigate any security vulnerabilities. We are committed to putting forth the controls necessary to assure our customers that their patient’s confidentiality is being fully protected.”
The examination was performed by BrightLine CPAs & Associates, Inc., an independent Certified Public Accounting firm that provides assurance and compliance services to global companies. Following completion of the examination, BrightLine issued an opinion confirming that OneNeck’s description of its information security program was fairly presented and that the program has adopted essential elements of the HIPAA Security Rule and HITECH requirements.
