This is an older link, but I missed this news originally and think it is vitally important to anyone interested in medicine and technology. In the past, many tech companies that provide useful tools for startups (like Amazon Web Services) were not taking the necessary steps to become HIPAA-compliant (in terms of signing contracts; their services have been plenty secure for some time). Changes to HIPAA within the HITECH Act—which took effect in Sept 2013—meant these companies would have to start complying. Thus, many new tech tools are now available to digital health startups.
