What makes the MailHippo secure email platform HIPAA compliant?
Better question: what makes any secure email messaging service HIPAA compliant?
This question is well addressed by looking at the HIPAA Security Rule, initially enacted by Congress in 2003 and further enhanced as part of the HITECH Act of 2009. The law states that ePHI (electronic protected health information) must be safeguarded in several ways to ensure the integrity, security and confidentiality of patient health records. (More information on the security rule may be found here on the HHS.gov website.)
