You can use AWS to build cloud-based applications that store, process, transmit, and analyze protected health information (PHI) in a manner that is consistent with the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). For example, you can build applications that employ Compliance as Code and utilize automated security and compliance services like Amazon CloudWatch.
Before you use your AWS account with PHI, you must accept the AWS Business Associate Addendum (BAA) and configure your account according to BAA requirements. The AWS BAA is available through a self-service portal in AWS Artifact. For more information, visit the AWS HIPAA Compliance website, or talk to your AWS representative.
