If your company deals with patients’ private medical data — called electronic protected health information, or ePHI — you fall under the complex and aggressively enforced federal HIPAA law. And if even you’ve already taken steps to safeguard this sensitive data when your staff transmits it, you must keep in mind that HIPAA also places strict requirements on how you store and back up any ePHI under your care.
Understanding these backup requirements, and deploying the right solution to back up your ePHI, can help keep you on the right side of HIPAA’s enforcers, save you from the law’s steep fines for violations, and even prevent the public damage your business’s reputation can suffer as the result of just one mistake.
