Hostway Announces Attestation as a HIPAA-Compliant Service Provider
Independently audited and approved, provides assurance of signed Business Associate Agreement validation
AUSTIN, Tex., February 20, 2017 – Hostway, with thousands of customers worldwide, is the industry-leading compliant hosting company and most trusted managed hosting provider. Today at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference in Orlando, the company announced a broad portfolio of managed solutions that are compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH), with an attestation for electronic protected health information (ePHI). Organizations that are required to comply with HIPAA and HITECH can confidently use the managed services of Hostway.
In recognition of its very high standards and strict processes, Hostway has received an attestation from external independent auditors. The company will provide additional peace of mind for customers via a signed Business Associate Agreement (BAA) validating that it will appropriately safeguard protected health information.
Hostway’s approach is comprehensive – assisting enterprises with full HIPAA/HITECH implementations and ongoing IT infrastructure management, along with 24×7 coverage from expert HIPAA analysts.
“The expansion of Hostway’s HIPAA offerings builds on the company’s commitment to offer trusted and secure cloud solutions that comply with the highest industry standards. More than $58 million in fines have been levied for failures to properly protect patients’ information,” said Emil Sayegh, CEO of Hostway. “We’re providing those who require HIPAA compliance the highest levels of trust and the peace of mind they deserve. The BAAs we provide are backed by the extraordinary measures we take to deliver industry-leading compliance services.”
“We’ve been a happy Hostway customer for more than a decade. As our hosting demands have evolved, Hostway has always exceeded our expectations. And when our privacy and security requirements increased, Hostway was there to implement an excellent HIPAA-compliant hosting solution.” said Jesse Randall, director of infrastructure and security at Ecteon, a leading SaaS provider for contract management software for the healthcare community.
