Would you like to know more before our official launch? Please feel free to call me directly, Timothy Campos, VP.

Here are some facts taken directly from current legislation:

  • Data backup of ePHI is mandatory under the law. “Data backup plan (Required). Establish and-implement procedures to create and maintain retrievable exact copies of electronic protected health information.” (45 CFR §164.308(7)(ii)(a)
  • A disaster recovery plan is required with “procedures to restore any loss of data.” (45 CFR §164.308(7)(ii)(b))
  • The penalties for non-compliance are sever, and can reach up to $1.5 million in cases ofwillful neglect (42 U.S. Code §1320D-5). Even in cases where HIPAA violations occur due toreasonable cause the fines are still $50,000 per violation with an annual maximum of $1.5million (42 U.S. Code §1320D-5).
  • Business Associate Agreements are required between the data backup company and the covered entity (45 CFR §164.314).
  • All data must be encrypted. Therefore it doesn’t fall within the definition of unsecured protected health information (45 CFR §164.402) and is further protected from the breach notification section of the rule (45 CFR §164.402-410).
