AWS CloudShell is now a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) eligible service. If you have an executed Business Associate Addendum (BAA) with AWS, you can now use AWS CloudShell for workloads that are subject to HIPAA compliance.

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. 

AWS CloudShell is a browser-based shell that makes it easier to securely manage, explore, and interact with your AWS resources. CloudShell is pre-authenticated with your console credentials. Common development tools are pre-installed so no local installation or configuration is required. With CloudShell you can run scripts with the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI), define infrastructure with the AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK), experiment with AWS service APIs using the AWS SDKs, or use a range of other tools to increase your productivity.
