HIPAA Compliance Services


Most doctor's websites are deployed on shared servers, which more often than not, do not support SSL (secure socket layer) email. Therefore, these sites are not HIPAA comliant. The fines for non-comliance range from $100 to $50,000 and the goverment is actively auditing healt care providers.

We offer both the development of secure, SEO websites as well as adapting existing sites to the AWS cloud; one of the few hosting sites that will provide Business Associate Agreements (BAA), essentially guaranteeing HIPAA compliance.

The process and pricing are detailed on our HIPAA Compliance - Technical Services website.

Letter of Recommendation
Madison Plastic Surgery

In order to satisfy HIPAA compliance regulations, the Madison Plastic Surgery webiste was moved to the Amazon Cloud (AWS). After defining a secure instance and installing a web server, we procured and installed a SSL certificate. We then installed SMTP and integrated it with Amazon’s Secure Email Service (SES) and adapted the website’s Contact Us page so that it now sent encrypted emails. Finally, we moved the existing website to Route 53, a DNS service within AWS secure infrastructure that prevents any data from travelling over the public internet. In addition, we improved their messaging, content, aesthetics and most importantly search engine rankings. After employing SEO techniques including enrollment in Google's verified authorship program, video sitemaps and relevant content, we were able to achieve first page rankings for very competitive search phrases like "plastic surgeon nyc" and liposuction nyc".


Ontario Lotto and Gaming needed to consolidate corporate data using their standard database platform, IBM DB2. We assisted OLG technical staff in converting a key MS-Access application to IBM DB2. The project was completed remotely, and was on time and under budget.

For over two decades, Bunker Hill has been successful in translating advances in technology into competitive advantage for our clients.

To put all questions about the selection of our name to rest; there's the "good" answer and the "real" answer. The prior being that the famous battle cry "Don’t one of you fire until you see the whites of their eyes" embodies an important business and software development principle: "Pay attention to detail, or else." Oh, the real answer is the company founders lived on a like named Bay Area hill.
