Watson Studio, Watson Machine Learning, and IBM Analytics Engine are now HIPAA ready! Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is the U.S. Federal law and regulations that define the control of personal healthcare information (PHI) for entities responsible for managing such data. HIPAA readiness permits our customers in US Healthcare regulated industries to consider these offerings as their premiere cloud solution for data science and AI.

All customers want to understand security models in place, and how they will safeguard data. They want to see how these controls apply to their industry regulations. They want to know that independent audit processes are in place to assure controls are being implemented as designed. And, they want to understand privacy policies. We have conducted assessments of technical and administrative controls, as well as policies and documentation in relation to HIPAA and the HITECH requirement and have been able to establish that the services are HIPAA ready!

In addition, these offerings recently earned certifications for quality and data privacy. First, the services were certified by accredited intedendent auditors for ISO 27001/270017/27018 certification. Additionally, these services are compliant with the General Data Privacy Regulation (GDPR).
