PowerBI HIPAA Compliant
Hello - can you please make PowerBI HIPAA compliant? The healthcare industry could really use this tool. However, all are skittish to apply it to their CRM data, which can be covered by the Microsoft Trust Center.

Yes, PowerBI was added to the HIPAA BAA as of March 2016 and the description of that is available in our OnLine Services Terms. Please see page 9 of the Online Services Terms for a complete listing of all our services covered by the HIPAA BAA. PowerBI is listed in the last row.

Not sure it is there yet despite the BAA. You need to support an audit log of who viewed which patient record. This is part of HIPAA and HITECH act. Right now, I do not believe it can be used for PHI. I am adding my votes to this entry.

This is critical if you expect any healthcare organization to adopt Power BI. We would love to start using this, but can't because it is not yet HIPAA compliant. Would love to know what Microsoft's timeline is for getting a BAA for this software.

Hi Bri / All:
I recently gained some valuable knowledge on this to share from the National Director, US Health & Life Sciences Industry Technology Unit at Microsoft via Microsoft Health LinkedIn group post comment that "PowerBI is covered by the Microsoft online services BAA (Business Associate Agreement) - work with your account team to get more of this information"
- see faq's @ https://www.microsoft.com/online/legal/v2/?docid=41 & link to the BAA agreement from #11 @ http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=232933
The area in the BAA that that covers this is under Topic: "Other Online Services", Subtopic:" PowerBI Pro".
I agree completely. The market research firm that I work for could really use a tool such as this in our arsenal; however, we deal with the healthcare industry and can not save data to the cloud.

Our company requires this. We produce software for the healthcare industry but are unable to share any of the statistical data through PowerBI because it is not HIPPA compliant. This feature would change the way we communicate value to our stakeholders.
