We are considering using Azure OpenAI in a question/answer scenario where we provide our application documentation and allow an end user to ask questions about using our application. However, since our application is used by healthcare providers, we have to ensure HIPAA compliance. Does Azure OpenAI offer HIPAA compliance?

    Hi @Kelly , Thanks for using Microsoft Q&A Platform.

    Yes, Azure OpenAI Services can be used in a HIPAA-compliant manner. Azure has a HIPAA and HITECH implementation guidance document that outlines how to use Azure services in a HIPAA-compliant manner.

    Please refer to this documentation for more information: https://azure.microsoft.com/resources/microsoft-azure-compliance-offerings/ I hope this helps.

    Regards,

    Vasavi
