Following our successful participation in the 2015 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Annual Conference & Exhibition in Chicago in April, Webair will again showcase our HIPAA-HITECH compliant Cloud and Infrastructure solutions at the 2015 New York State (NYS) Chapter MiniHIMSS Conference on June 17. Taking place from 8:00 AM-7:00 PM at the Marriott Downtown Hotel located at 85 West Street in Manhattan, this year’s NYS Chapter MiniHIMSS Conference is titled “The Patient will see you now…”. The event represents yet another opportunity where attendees can meet with the Webair team to discuss the most secure and cost-effective methods of storing and transmitting electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI) and other sensitive patient and customer data.
The NYS Chapter of HIMSS is the premier professional organization serving the interests of local healthcare information management and systems professionals who work or reside in New York State, from Montauk Point to Niagara Falls. Affiliated, supported and partially funded by HIMSS, the NYS Chapter provides a local forum for healthcare IS/IT and information management professionals to share their work experiences, raise concerns in the industry, acquire knowledge and training, and attend seminars that can assist in career advancement.
Webair is unique in its dedication to providing secure, flexible IT solutions that are in compliance with a variety of healthcare-related security protocols. These include the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act, two major regulations with which healthcare providers need to comply when harboring ePHI.
In May, we were proud to announce that Webair had successfully completed a Statement on Standards of Attestation Engagements No. 16 (SSAE 16) Controls at a Service Organization (SOC 1) Type 2 audit certification for its NY1 data center located on Long Island, NY. In addition to completing its SSAE 16 certification audit, we also completed a HIPAA Security Standard Matrix, which affirmed our administrative actions, policies and procedures were HIPAA-HITECH compliant. Achieving SSAE 16 certification and HIPAA-HITECH compliance reinforces Webair’s dedication to providing the highest levels of security and reliability across our data center infrastructure, systems, processes and services in order to effectively support global customers’ business environments and offer critical protection for sensitive company information.
As many healthcare professionals and industry analysts agree, the virtually infinite and disparate sources of data for which the healthcare sector is responsible make issues of efficiency, security and patient privacy a non-negotiable and mission-critical concern. Webair helps healthcare providers with HIPAA-HITECH compliance, so they can rest assured knowing all sensitive data is safe and secure. Our Managed Hosting solutions and data center facilities are certified to support HIPAA-HITECH compliance to improve efficiency, reduce risk and enable healthcare providers to focus on medical services and patient care.
