HIPAA (health insurance portability and accountability) is an integral part of the healthcare industry’s operations. HIPAA compliance through Microsoft Azure is designed to make the implementation of HIPAA simple and well managed for a medical practice. Managing security and compliance is essential in the medical industry. In this article, we’ll discuss what Microsoft Azure offers to the medical industry for security and compliance concerning HIPAA.
Around the Clock
One of the many benefits of HIPAA compliance through Microsoft Azure is its ability to offer continuous monitoring. 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and 365 days a year, the performance of critical operations is kept safe. Constant monitoring is essential. Security breaches aren’t concerned with the time of day. You need a management team that is always available.
Audit Management and Support
Audits are a large part of HIPAA, and that’s why compliance through Microsoft Azure speaks on your behalf to third-party HIPAA auditors. This creates one less thing for a medical practice to have to think about. Audit support is available around the clock to answer questions.
Using an InfoSec team, scans are run, and vulnerabilities are reported, keeping a business constantly up-to-date on the environment of their system. Scans are used to help the team protect, prioritize, and make recommendations. The goal is to stop malicious activity before it begins.
SIEM (security information and event management) allows the management team deep visibility into the environment. We go further than other security and compliance systems, so nothing is missed. Doing so allows for automatic detection of unusual behavior. Remediation and reporting then follow.
HIPAA has strict guidelines, and compliance is essential. You have other services that need your attention. Trust Atmosera to make sure your medical practice meets the standards of HIPAA.
