DataBank Adds HIPAA Compliance Attestation

DataBank Adds HIPAA Compliance Attestation

DataBank’s data center facilities offer the healthcare industry ready-to-deploy solutions for colocation and managed services

Dallas, Texas – October 21, 2014 – DataBank Holdings, Ltd., a leading custom data center and colocation provider based in Dallas, announced the addition of HIPAA / HITECH Attestation to their annual audit certifications. With this latest compliance standard, DataBank offers the healthcare industry assurance and ease to deploy IT assets within compliance in DataBank data center facilities.

The HIPAA Security assessment was conducted in a structured approach that can identify and evaluate the controls in place which are associated with the operations of the IT environment and the business operations environment. The assessment addressed a wide range of Administrative Safeguards, Technical Safeguards, Physical Safeguards, Policies & Procedures, as well as Documentation Requirements as they relate to DataBank’s Data Center Services.

“We have a number of healthcare clients which currently conform to the HIPAA regulations and standards, said Michael Gentry, VP of Operations for DataBank. By securing DataBank’s attestation as a part of our own annual audit process, we make it much simpler for both current and future customers to comply with the guidelines laid out in the audit, potentially saving them a significant financial and manpower investment.”

DataBank’s HIPAA/HITECH examination was performed by a full-service audit and consulting firm that specializes in integrated compliance solutions and examinations. By completing such examinations on an annual basis, DataBank is able to demonstrate substantially higher levels of assurance and operational visibility to both prospects and clientele.
