The United States Department of Health and Human Services enforces HIPAA laws to protect the private health information of Americans. When organizations don’t follow their strict regulations they may face harsh penalties for noncompliance. That’s why it is important to understand which organizations are legally required to follow HIPAA and have HIPAA compliant hosting.

People and organizations that submit their patient’s protected health information (PHI) in electronic form are considered Covered Entitities that must follow HIPAA security rules. Healthcare providers that work in clinics, hospitals and regional health organizations are Covered Entities. The law also applies to individual medical practitioners who use electronic forms for their patients.

Health plans are also legally bound to use HIPAA compliant hosting. Covered Entities include Health Maintenance Organizations (or HMOs), Medicaid, and Medicare plans that cover prescription drugs. Healthcare clearinghouses, public health authorities, flexible spending accounts and third-party administrators also make the list. The government considers companies that offers health insurance to its employees Covered Entities. Universities that gather, store or transmit electronic protected health information when they enroll students in health plans must also use hosting that is compliant with the government’s HIPAA guidelines.
