HITECH Act Puts Security of Electronic Medical Records in Hands of Hosting Providers
Date:8/9/2011

ALLENTOWN, Pa., Aug. 9, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The HITECH Act is a law that requires healthcare organizations to convert medical records into electronic files and protecting this online data is at the forefront of many leading managed hosting providers. INetU (www.inetu.net) president Dev Chanchani, a thought-leader in HIPAA and HITECH compliance, has been asked to address these concerns at the 2011 HostingCon conference and tradeshow during a speaking session on Wednesday, August 10.

"The HITECH Act has shifted some of the accountability of keeping electronic healthcare records secure to hosting providers, who are now responsible for more control, auditing and reporting," said Chanchani. "Hosting providers must study the complexities of HIPAA and HITECH, and make swift and appropriate steps to offer compliant-capable solutions for their clients."

According to Chanchani, if hosting providers don't take the time to fully understand their clients' HIPAA systems and work out a mutual agreement on how to create a transparent audit and oversight system that extends into data hosting space, they could put themselves at risk for severe penalties. In the end it's all about risk management - HIPAA / HITECH enforcement are funded and actively pursuing violators.

Detailed information about HostingCon, the premier conference and tradeshow for companies providing website hosting, hosted messaging and software as a service, can be found at www.hostingcon.com.

The HIPAA Privacy Rule creates national standards to protect individuals' medical records and other personal health information and the HITECH Act promotes the adoption and meaningful use of health information technology.
