The Implications of Data Protection for Cloud Providers and Integrators in the Health Care Space

In a society ever more dependent on technology, protection of privacy and personal data is key. Those who work in the health care industry must be particularly vigilant. In the past several years, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act’s (HIPAA’s) privacy and security rules have become more stringent. Not only health care providers, but also those who work with them, must be aware of how to protect data. If you provide cloud-based technology to the health care industry, stay abreast of advances in the field meant to protect yourself as well as your colleagues.
