Independently examining our HIPAA and HITECH attestations demonstrates our commitment to helping our customers protect and secure patient data.
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (PRWEB) March 17, 2016
OneNeck® IT Solutions announces the successful completion of an independent examination of its HIPAA and HITECH compliance attestations. As part of the examination, OneNeck’s adoption of 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) were reviewed.
This examination assessed OneNeck’s physical and administrative security controls used for the colocation services at their Tier 3 data centers in Arizona, Colorado, Iowa (Des Moines), Minnesota, Oregon and Wisconsin. The results verified OneNeck has implemented and maintained controls that address:
- Administrative safeguards
- Physical safeguards
- Technical safeguards
- Breach notification
“Independently examining our HIPAA and HITECH attestations demonstrates our commitment to helping our customers protect and secure patient data,” said Clint Harder, CTO and senior vice president at OneNeck. “For our healthcare clients, this examination allows them to focus on security and administrative controls at the application and data layer.”
The examination was performed by Shellman & Company, Inc., an independent CPA firm with extensive IT service provider experience. Following completion of the examination, Shellman & Company issued an opinion confirming the description of OneNeck’s information security program was fairly presented and that OneNeck has adopted the essential elements of the HIPAA Security Rule and HITECH requirements.
Completion of the HIPAA and HITECH examination follows announcements earlier this month by OneNeck that they have also completed the Type 2 SSAE 16 (SOC 1) examination and PCI Data Security Standard validation.
