Re: HIPAA is key!
HIPAA is vital because, in healthcare, you truly are responsible for your partners' behavior - or lack, thereof. If a business associate's security is breached, then the healthcare system is both at risk and responsible. In some cases, depending on location (such as Florida), it may have to notify patients and law enforcement about the breach. So you want to ensure cloud service providers meet stringent criteria and HIPAA's a good place to start.

HIPAA is key!
This part of the atricle is great:

 

"When using cloud services, healthcare organizations must be certain that providers meet HIPAA regulations, said Jennifer Christianson, a partner in the law firm Carlton Fields Jorden Burt, in an interview."

 

Luckiy now a days there are many services out that that have become HIPAA certfied to help healthcare practitioners. Here at SurveyMonkey we offer a completely HIPAA compliant platform. THis is incredibly useful for professionals that are gathering medical research, patient intakes etc. Many companies are jumping onboard including Verizon and Amazon. It's absolutely crucial that we are able to provide these services to the healthcare industry so they may achieve their goals!
