A new white paper commissioned by Microsoft from HIPAA One assesses how current Microsoft security controls can help Microsoft Teams customers with HIPAA compliance.
Source: New white paper highlights how Microsoft Teams helps healthcare providers 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.
I am just an individual blogger, not in the enterprise, so this content is only semi-relevant to me, however, the use of what can be best described as Microsoft’s version of YouTube can integrate with other tools in the Microsoft 365 chest, such as OneNote (their version of Evernote), Teams (their version of Slack), and SharePoint. This works for all verticals, not just healthcare and life sciences, which this blog has a focus on.
As an aside, when I was in the enterprise many moons ago, these collaborative tools would have been most helpful to me. I just don’t own a Windows Ink or active touch screens that make very good use of it.
Not discussed were the HIPAA implications of collaboration and access, stuff that as a former IT pro, keeps me up at night. The enterprise has these people in place to handle this, and Microsoft to back them up.
As healthcare and Life Sciences organizations look to Digitally transform one area of interest is the increased uses of video for tacit knowledge capture and re-use, for meeting capture, as well as for training. One of the stumbling blocks though for many is making that video readily available when and where it makes sense to utilize inline and making the inclusion of it simple for everyday users within and organization.
