What You Need to Know About HIPAA Compliance and Cloud Services

This guide for health care administrators and IT managers summarizes what you need to know—and do—to help ensure that your email and other cloud IT services are in full compliance with HIPAA.

As a health care provider or business associate, you’re at the center of a confluence of forceful trends:

  • HIPAA and supplementary laws and regulations demand rigorous protections of patient privacy and health care information security—and threaten severe penalties for those who fall short.
  • You need, as always, to maximize cost efficiency—which means, among other things, spending wisely on the information technology (IT) that’s integral to modern health care delivery and management.

Read this guide to learn about achieving HIPAA compliance with your cloud services—easily and cost-effectively.
