Amazon Alexa rolls out HIPAA-compliant service for developers
Modern Healthcare

A new, invite-only program from Amazon allows select healthcare groups—including hospitals and health insurers—to develop HIPAA-compliant skills for its voice assistant, Alexa.

Developers who participate in the program, including HIPAA-covered entities and their business associates, are able to build voice skills that transmit protected health information in Amazon Alexa’s HIPAA-eligible environment.

Amazon announced the service in a blog post Thursday, with information about the first six skills to be developed as part of the program.
