re: Microsoft Updates Cloud Agreement For HIPAA Rules
This article brings up some good points that a lot of organizations that are now classified as Business Associates are unaware of in terms of HIPAA Compliance. The fact that these businesses are directly liable for any security breach and the possibility of a $1.5M fine should be an eye opener. This is why we are building Accountable (http://accountablehq.com) to help organizations manage their HIPAA compliance including Business Associate Agreements, employee training, and policies and procedures.

re: Microsoft Updates Cloud Agreement For HIPAA Rules
With the amount of cloud services available right now, the providers have to always take into account any changes in HIPAA regulations, especially if any health provider is to use their service. All providers and entities that deal with PHI need to take into account that their cloud providers need to offer them the protection necessary to comply with HIPAA regulations as the repercussions can be costly. Signing these BAAGÇÖs help protect these companies against any miscues.
