New HIPAA Resource Helps IT Service Providers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Calyptix Security Corp., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for small- and medium-size businesses, today announced a new resource that highlights important regulations that IT service providers must follow when serving clients in the healthcare industry. The resource, titled HIPAA for IT Providers: The most important rules to know, is a free report that simplifies the most relevant aspects of HIPAA that managed service providers (MSPs), value-added resellers (VARs), and other IT service providers must follow in healthcare.


“HIPAA is a huge piece of legislation and our MSP and VAR partners need clarity on the requirements that affect them most. Our new report shows the most important parts of HIPAA for their organizations. We hope it encourages them to learn more and eventually launch or expand new services in healthcare,” said Ben Yarbrough, CEO, Calyptix Security.

HIPAA is an acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Originally passed by Congress in 1996, the act was later expanded and amended to include a broad set of regulations for healthcare organizations. Many of the regulations apply to the security of protected health information, called “PHI”.

IT service providers who handle patient data for healthcare clients are considered “business associates” by HIPAA”s guidelines. The designation requires them to secure data within the guidelines or risk steep penalties, among other requirements.
