Can covered entities take advantage of the cloud and still comply with HIPAA?
Cloud computing offers significant efficiencies by outsourcing IT systems, along with the management and administration of those systems. This might include, for example, having data stored, processed and managed by the cloud computing provider. Although privacy and security issues affect any cloud user, the highly regulated healthcare industry should remain cautiously optimistic when weighing the financial benefits of the cloud against the potential compliance risks.
