In 2014 Datica open sourced our company policies under a a CC BY-SA 4.0 license. They were written with a modern, cloud-based organization in mind. Since then the response has been overwhelmingly positive—we have had more activity on GitHub than governmental institutions like the FDA. Along the way we’ve helped hundreds of businesses get started by eliminating this portion of HIPAA compliance as a burden.
HIPAA compliance is complicated, but it doesn’t have to be. Datica helps relieve the technical burden with our HIPAA-compliant cloud computing platform and solutions for healthcare.
In an effort to make compliance as easy as possible for companies working with protected health information (PHI), we decided to open source our company policies.
Our policies have been written with modern, cloud-based technology vendors in mind. We looked far and wide for policy examples that fit our company, and couldn’t find any. So we wrote our own. Importantly, these policies have been through three external audits—two HIPAA audits and one HITRUST audit.
