HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA; Pub.L. 104–191, 110 Stat. 1936, enacted August 21, 1996) was enacted by the United States Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton in 1996. It has been known as the Kennedy–Kassebaum Act or Kassebaum–Kennedy Act after two of its leading sponsors. Title I of HIPAA protects health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.

our company is required to have HIPAA hosting and network. I understood we can consult with HIPAA consultant but we first want to learn what a company should do if the company wants to be HIPAA.

Our company has small office with just 10 employees. Only PC. no server. Physically, it is very simple.
We have only one website as well. and of  course hope to get HIPAA protected as well.

If you have been in this situation, share with me what/how should get start will definitely help.

Hi!
1. Customer: Health Care Industry (Hospice) - so we need HIPPA Compliance
2. 7 Locations throughout 2 States.
3. About 70 email users.

CUSTOMER WANTS
1. Customer wants secure end-to-end email encryption
2. All email stored and accessible from central control panel -- even if the USER decides to delete their "copy."

POSSIBLE IDEA I HAD:
1. A single account for each of the seven locations that would be their end-to-end encrypted email
       -- I thought of www.ProtonMail.com   - any comments on this?

2. All other accounts are with GoDaddy Email Hosting -- maybe just make sure they are sending / receiving through SSL / TLS, and that they understand NOT TO SEND patient data using that email address?
       -- Was going to ask GoDaddy about a central "copy" service.
       -- ...or do I need to just configure a machine here at the central office to download everything each day or so?

Thanks!

Currently looking for suggestion on a video conferencing unit that would be used in a health care environment, it needs to be in compliance with HIPPA and Unit has to be a standalone unit with no subscription cost.
