Google Agrees to Sign HIPAA BAA

In September 2013, Google offered for the first time to sign a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) available for Google Apps. That's good news for organizations unwilling to deploy Google Apps without such an agreement. It is also a smart competitive move, as it matches Microsoft, which offers to sign a BAA for Office365.
"Your organization can adopt Gmail, Calendar, and Drive, confident that IIHI and PHI in those apps will be protected by the BAA." - TechRepublic
