Amazon AppStream 2.0 is now a HIPAA Eligible Service. If you have a HIPAA Business Associate Addendum (BAA) in place with AWS, you can now start using Amazon AppStream 2.0 to stream desktop applications with data containing protected health information (PHI). If you do not have a BAA in place with AWS or have any other questions about running HIPAA-regulated workloads on AWS, please contact us.
HIPAA Eligibility applies to all AWS Regions where AppStream 2.0 is available. See the Architecting for HIPAA Security and Compliance on Amazon Web Services Whitepaper for information and best practices about how to configure AWS HIPAA Eligible Services to store, process, and transmit PHI.
AppStream 2.0 is a fully managed, secure application streaming service that allows you to stream desktop applications to users without rewriting applications. AppStream 2.0 can provide users with instant-on access to the applications they need with a responsive, fluid user experience on the device of their choice. AppStream 2.0 offers pay-as-you-go pricing. Please see Amazon AppStream 2.0 Pricing for more information, and try our sample applications.
