Amazon Chime 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 Chime for your HIPAA eligible workloads. 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 Amazon Chime 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. For more information regarding HIPAA and Amazon Chime communication considerations, see the Amazon Chime Administration Guide.
Amazon Chime is a secure, real-time, communications service that simplifies video conferencing, online meetings, calls, and chat. With Amazon Chime, there are no upfront payments, and there is no infrastructure to deploy. You can try Amazon Chime for free for 30 days by visiting the Amazon Chime trial page.
