HIPAA Compliance Email

Last Updated: Aug 10, 2018

At Name.com the following products are not HIPAA Compliant.
 
 
Google G Suite offered by Name.com can meet the requirements of HIPAA Security Rule
 
Google has sought and received security certifications such as Iso 27001 Certification, SOC 2 and SOC 3 Type II audits. 
 
G Suite and Cloud Identity can support HIPAA compliance. Under HIPAA, certain information about a person’s health or health care services is classified as Protected Health Information (PHI). G Suite and customers who are subject to HIPAA and wish to use G Suite in HIPAA compliance must sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with Google.
 
To review and accept a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement (BAA) for G suite the admin of your account must be signed in to an administrator account for their G Suite or Cloud Identity service. Non-administrator G Suite users or users of the legacy free edition of G Suite cannot review and accept a BAA from Google at this time.

Opt in to the HIPAA Business Associate Agreement: Google Admin Console

  1. Click Company Profile.
  2. Select Profile.
  3. In Security and Privacy Additional Terms next to HIPAA Business Associate Amendment, click Review and Accept.
  4. Answer all three questions, and if you are able to be confirmed as a HIPAA covered entity, click I accept to accept the HIPAA BAA
G Suite and Cloud Identity customers are responsible for determining whether they are subject to HIPAA requirements and whether they use or intend to use Google services in connection with PHI. Customers who have not signed a BAA with Google must not use Google services in connection with PHI.

Administrators must review and accept the BAA before using Google services with PHI. Google offers a BAA covering Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Drive (including Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms), Google Hangouts (chat messaging feature only), Hangouts chat, Hangouts Meet, Google Keep, Google Cloud Search, Google Sites, Google Groups, Google Tasks, Jamboard, Google Vault services, and Google Cloud Identity Management.
