The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) was the result of efforts by the federal government to ensure healthcare data practices permitted ease for patients to move jobs, insurance and healthcare providers.
As defined by 45 CFR 164.312 of HHS HIPAA, DENCARE Management Inc. (DenCare) Online Backup assist healthcare providers to be HIPAA compliant in the following ways:
DENCARE Online Backup, in all cases, creates, receives and transmits only encrypted data. DENCARE uses a three-tiered AES encryption system which encrypts data on the users computer, again in transit and finally when at rest in storage at DENCAREs datacenters.
This data cannot be read while in transit, or even on the DENCARE servers, as long as the user (health care provider) does not compromise the password (for example, writing the password on a sticky note and attaching it to a computer screen in open view.)
· DENCARE servers are located in SAS 70 II datacenters protected by gated access, 24 x 7 x 365 on-site staffed security and technicians, electronic card key access, and strategically placed security cameras both inside and outside the building.
· DENCARE Online Backup is an automated offsite backup and protects data against hardware malfunction, accidental deletion, virus attacks, theft and natural disasters.
· DENCAREs Ultrasafe allows the user (health care provider) to store their data securely such that no one including DENCARE engineers will be able to access their data.
A business associate agreement is not required with DENCARE. These agreements are between covered entities where there IS a reasonable probability that Protected Health Information can be reviewed.
Privacy regulations contained in HIPAA apply to Electronic Private Health Information and DENCARE does not possess this.
As DENCARE cannot and does not examine the data, no business associate agreement is required.
