Compliance in Microsoft Cloud for Healthcare

Microsoft Azure, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Microsoft 365, and Microsoft Power Platform services and its underlying infrastructure employ a security framework that encompasses industry best practices and spans multiple standards, including the ISO 27000 family of standards, NIST 800, and others. As part of our comprehensive compliance offering, Microsoft regularly undergoes independent audits performed by qualified third-party accredited assessors.

The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) is an organization governed by representatives from the healthcare industry. HITRUST created and maintains the Common Security Framework (CSF), a certifiable framework to help healthcare organizations and their providers demonstrate their security and compliance in a consistent and streamlined manner. The CSF builds on HIPAA and the HITECH Act and incorporates healthcare-specific security, privacy, and other regulatory requirements from existing frameworks such as the PCI DSS, ISO 27001, EU GDPR, NIST, and MARS-E. HITRUST provides a benchmark—a standardized compliance framework, assessment, and certification process—against which cloud service providers and covered health entities can measure compliance. HITRUST offers 3 degrees of assurance or levels of assessment: self-assessment, CSF-validated, and CSF-certified. Each level builds with increasing rigor on the one that precedes it. An organization with the highest level, CSF-certified, meets all the CSF certification requirements.

Microsoft is one of the first hyperscale cloud service providers to receive certification for the HITRUST CSF. HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) clarifies and limits how the business associate (Microsoft) can handle protected health information (PHI) and sets forth additional terms for each party related to the security and privacy provisions outlined in HIPAA and the HITECH Act. The BAA is automatically included as part of the Online Services Terms and applies to customers who are covered entities or business associates and are storing PHI. The regulatory compliance standards that apply to certain features offered through the Microsoft Healthcare Add-On can be found in the compliance document (PDF).

The Microsoft Healthcare Add-on Service Specific Terms explain your and Microsoft’s rights and obligations with respect to regulatory compliance standards for Customer Data and Non-Microsoft Product data solely in connection with your use of the Microsoft Healthcare Add-on. The qualifying license terms for Microsoft 365/Office 365, Dynamics 365, Microsoft Power Platform, Azure, and the Microsoft Health Bot service are found in the Online Service Terms and the Microsoft Privacy Statement and are a prerequisite to your use of the Healthcare Add-on SKU.
