There are a few questions around this topic, yet none of them are answered clearly.

We, a startup with no previous business relationship with Microsoft, would like use Azure OpenAI service to analyze medical data potentially containing PHI with OpenAI's GPT-4 model.

Two questions:

  1. Is Azure OpenAI service HIPAA compliant?
  2. If yes, how do we get a BAA with Microsoft?

Thanks!

    For your question 2, you’ll need to speak to your sales representative, we don't require an agreement, if you are a managed account, you can speak with account team.

    I hope this helps, please let me know if you need more information.

    Regards,

    Yutong
