Meeting HIPAA Compliancy
October 18, 2019
The products you use have to keep up with your duties and provide a maximum level of accessibility while maintaining patient protection and security.
But in today’s fast-paced world of cyber-hackers, identity theft and digital fraud, you can’t go far enough to protect your personal information and the information of your customers and patients. And legally, it is necessary to take standard measures to protect the information your customers have provided you.
Enacted in 1996, The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (most commonly referred to as HIPAA) provides security of personal information from medical history, social security numbers, addresses, and more.
Ultra customizable, Datum’s unique filing solutions accommodate a variety of storage requirements including folders, digital files, etc. A variety of doors and locking options ensure maximum security of data.

In addition to maintaining HIPAA compliance of paper documents, equally important is the security of Electronic Protected Health Information (EPHI). EPHI is in compliance with HIPPA regulations and guidelines when it is:
- Only accessible to those who have a business need
- Stored and processed on systems that are strictly controlled and backed up
- Monitored during all access
- Only moved to authorized locations and is encrypted in storage and while transmitted on unprotected networks
Keep digital files stored on a desktop computer secure and protected with Datum’s CPU Locker. The heavy duty lockers securely store CPU units and protect them from unwanted eyes by easily attaching to a desk or table. Laptops and small electronic devices remain secure in the office or on the road in Datum’s LapTop Locker.
Whether you choose Datum’s state-of-the-art, secure computer storage solutions, wall-mounted storage engineered for easy accessibly in high-traffic areas or a high density storage solution for file folders, you can be sure you’ll remain squarely within HIPAA compliance.
