Microsoft provides several security features to help businesses in the healthcare verticals maintain compliance with specific regulations including Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). However, the responsibility for HIPAA compliance and safeguard of electronically protected health information (ePHI) is still borne by the Microsoft 365/ Office 365 customers.

Healthcare employees often have to share sensitive data, such as health, student information, and other personally identifiable information. Organizations can empower their users with Microsoft Teams and Phone System that meet HIPAA security standards.

Improve Access Control

Access to PHI must be restricted for HIPAA compliance. These controls are available with Azure Active Directory that also allows admins to implement Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and other such security features.
