Scriv,

  I carry 2 hospitals and 4 clinics in N. Louisiana and are their primary
internet connections. We had this discussion last year and a simple VPN from
their router to my core router was more than sufficient to meet HIPPA
guidelines. HIPPA "compliance" is a very vague area!

Subject: [WISPA] Wireless Security biting you in the ass?

Wireless broadband security issues have now officially led to my 
business being put into a bad light due to perceived lack of security. I 
am a member of a regional broadband planning group that is working with 
health care and other industry sectors to help deliver broadband options 
to all areas that need it. Rural Health centers and hospitals are all 
over the region and most need access to broadband which is highly 
secure. I need to know what others have done to bring HIPAA compliance 
assurance to network administrators and hospital personnel so that your 
solutions are chosen and used for health care connectivity. Currently my 
services are not being considered do to the perception of a lack of 
HIPAA security compliance. I need to get on top of this right now and 
welcome your thoughts and ideas. I would prefer to hear from those of 
you who have some actual knowledge of delivering HIPAA compliant 
connections or those who provide equipment which has been documented to 
meet HIPAA compliance.
Thank you,
John Scrivner
