BOSTON – September 15, 2015 – Acquia, the digital experience company, today announced that it has successfully completed a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) attestation examination through an independent audit. The successful completion of this HIPAA audit is part of the company’s ongoing commitment to maintaining and affirming adherence to stringent security standards and protocols.
The healthcare laws of the past decade have required hospitals and healthcare providers to improve the digital safeguards put in place for data security and electronically protected health information (ePHI). And for good reason, too. Data breaches have plagued some of the largest healthcare organizations, and the rapid growth of mobile devices in patient care only increases the stakes for protecting patient data. In response, healthcare providers are turning to vendors who help mitigate their risks and allow them to focus on improving patient outcomes. Acquia’s successful HIPAA examination verifies the company’s security practices for healthcare customers. Among Acquia’s healthcare customers are Children’s Hospital of Los Angeles, Northwestern Memorial Hospital, Heartland Dental, Texas Children’s Hospital, El Camino Hospital, Steward Health Care System and Great Ormond Street Hospital.
