Dropbox makes it easy to adopt the digital and technical tools that help enable your business to be HIPAA and HITECH compliant.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH) rely on technology for security and privacy in healthcare.
Hospitals, doctor and dental offices, chiropractic clinics and those who interact with protected health information (PHI) may be subject to HIPAA/HITECH.
Dropbox makes it as easy as possible to keep your account secure and meet legal requirements.
While it's up to you to comply with your regulatory obligations, Dropbox has a framework of recommendations to help keep your data safe and your accounts secured by:
Configuring sharing permissions
Disabling permanent deletions
Signing a Business Associate Agreement(BAA) with Dropbox
Understanding the role of third-party apps
There is a robust ecosystem of third-party apps that you can link to your Dropbox Business account to gain added functionality. Integrations that provide services such as SIEM, DLP and identity management can be powerful tools in strengthening your existing security practices.
