Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (Amazon EKS) is now HIPAA-eligible. If you have an executed Business Associate Addendum (BAA) with AWS, you can use Amazon EKS to manage processing encrypted Protected Health Information (PHI) in Docker containers deployed onto a cluster of Amazon EC2 compute instances.

For more information, please visit our page on HIPAA compliance. If you plan to process, store, or transmit PHI and do not have an executed BAA from AWS, please contact us for more information. See AWS services in scope for information on compliance for all AWS services.

Please visit the AWS region table to see all AWS regions where Amazon EKS is available.
