I wanted to share some great news with you. Our NAVRISK VISION Rackspace Hosting client services are now HITRUST certified.
The HITRUST framework was developed with the goal of standardizing the way organizations protect electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI). It goes beyond the requirements laid out in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and provides organizations with a comprehensive, efficient and verifiable approach to regulatory compliance and risk management.
The HITRUST certification is a level above HIPAA compliance. A lot of organizations can say they are HIPAA compliant, but that simply means they believe they are subscribing to it. What HITRUST offers is the opportunity to verify HIPAA compliance through a comprehensive and ongoing certification process.
After months of rigorous preparation and hard work, Rackspace has earned the HITRUST certification. This means that our NAVRISK Rackspace Hosting customers looking to secure electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) can now rely on a verifiable set of standards and practices introduced by the Health Information Trust Alliance Common Security Framework for protecting electronic medical records.
HITRUST certification encompasses all of the dedicated servers, storage, databases and networking solutions at Rackspace that we use to Host our NAVRISK Rackspace Hosted customers. Our valued NAVRISK Rackspace Hosting customers are now HITRUST certified, at no extra cost.
