The Center for Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) is pushing to get healthcare records moved from paper to electronic charts. At the same time, clinicians across the healthcare system are realizing the benefits of storing records electronically, including chart accuracy and clarity of records.
Healthcare systems are under government mandates to secure protected health information (PHI) in their own servers and the cloud. Executives are understandably concerned about maintaining a secure environment, both for patient trust and safety, and for financial stability. Read our white paper to learn how healthcare organizations can overcome security concerns while securing PHI in the cloud.
One role of HIPAA is protecting the integrity and confidentiality of PHI, as well as promoting industry-wide standards for healthcare information in electronic billing. In this guide, we detail how HIPAA plays into cloud security.
Adopting Google Cloud Platform (GCP) can help strengthen and augment security systems. We explain how public cloud security features and products by Google are intrinsically more comprehensive and robust than those available in an on-site data center.
Organizations should think about cloud security this way: the healthcare organization controls the data. The cloud company processes the data. This guide explains how HIPAA compliance then is a shared responsibility.
