A new white paper commissioned by Microsoft from HIPAA One assesses how current Microsoft security controls can help Microsoft Teams customers with HIPAA compliance.
Microsoft Teams, like the rest of Office 365 is HIPAA compliant by default. The service that is targeted by Microsoft’s version, Slack, is not in its default configuration. This is not to put down Slack’s effectiveness in the marketplace, but the healthcare industry is a major user of the Microsoft system of business software and integration. This choice is not an option with collaboration and communications in the Personal Health Information space.
