Speaker: Phil Cox - Director of Security and Compliance, RightScale
On January 25, 2013, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) released the final implementing regulations for many provisions of the HITECH Act (Health Insurance Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act), often referred to as the Omnibus Rule. Many organizations have based their architectures and implementations on previous proposed and interim regulations, some of which are no longer valid. Anyone falling under HIPAA requirements is required to meet these new definitive compliance requirements by September 23, 2013. This talk will discuss the parts of the Omnibus rule that affect the cloud landscape, and how you can successfully deploy a HIPAA-compliant application in the public cloud.
