PRLog - Aug. 20, 2012 - LAKE BLUFF, Ill. -- Industry leading healthcare information technology (HIT) resource EMRapproved.com announced the launch of its 4Med Secure Backup and Storage service. The service is HIPAA complaint with a three-tiered security system providing complete data privacy and protection for medical environments. The level of encryption used by 4Med is used by the US military and includes UltraSafe technology for health care data and PHI (personal health information).

Does data backup need to be HIPAA compliant?
Yes! It is important to know that secure backup is an important part of any healthcare and security compliance strategy. Subtitle D of the HITECH Act addresses the privacy and security concerns associated with the electronic transmission of health information through several provisions that strengthen the civil and criminal enforcement of the HIPAA rules.

Why is secure remote backup important?
Protection! Cloud-based remote backup can be geographically distant from the client site to minimize the likelihood of data loss in a large-scale disaster. In the event of loss of the primary data center, data on a Secure Remote Backup Server can easily be recovered from our replacement data center.

Is all remote backup secure and complaint?
No! Most remote and cloud based remote services do not provide the levels of security required for compliancy and would not qualify you for meaningful use. The 4MedSecureBackup Remote cloud based managed backup solution contains all appropriate technical security mechanisms to protect the data that is transmitted to and from your server based EMR/EHR and all patient record and local report storage.

Who manages the 4Med backup?
Professionals! Where most commercial remote backup solutions require that you take responsibility for the setup, management and restoration in situations of emergency, 4MedProNetwork Security Specialists manage and monitor the backup service for you. They will even set it up on your network at no additional charge. All 4MedPro Business Associates are HIPAA Certified!

Wendy Whitmore, CIO of EMRapproved says “With the recent HHS announcement indicating that PHI security breaches have affected over 21 million individuals, I feel this is an important service offering for our site visitors and for the medical community at large.”
Free trials of the 4Med service are available. For more information, visit http://4medsecurebackup.com or call (800) 671-1028 to speak with a 4Med Professional.
