What Your MSP Should Know About HIPAA Compliance
The complexity of healthcare service demands robust technical infrastructure. Advances in patient treatment, research, diagnostic tools and even predictive analytics and AI have pushed technologies available to healthcare providers, which means that these organizations turn to expert providers to give them new tools and features to revolutionize their patient care models. This increased reliance on Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) or a Managed Service Providers (MSP) means that these organizations must rely on HIPAA-compliant technologies, which means counting on HIPAA-compliant vendors to provide them.
