Power BI And HIPAA-Compliant Services
Microsoft designs Power BI to be HIPAA-compliant. Power BI is now a member of the Microsoft Trust Center. This means that the product is now compliant with a range of standards, including:
- HIPAA BAA
- EU Model Clauses
- HIPAA BAA
- ISO 27001
- ISO 27018
- UK G-Cloud
Microsoft Trust Center is a single point of reference for all trusted sources. It is a repository for local, regional, and national compliance certifications, location policies, security features, data protection policies, and more.
PHI data can be valuable for healthcare organizations, but transferring and migrating it can be challenging. U.S. firms require a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) from partner organizations that create, maintain, transmit, or receive PHI. Partners must safeguard any systems communicating this information by law. Failing to follow protocols can lead to fines and even licensing contract terminations in extreme cases.
Authorities are keen to protect PHI. If hackers or other parties gain access to this information, it could put patients at risk. HIPAA sets out the safeguards and requirements for keeping all personally identifiable information out of the wrong hands.
