PlanetScale and HIPAA

PlanetScale is committed to supporting the needs of our customers in every industry. We are happy to announce that customers on an Enterprise plan can now request Business Associate Agreements (BAAs) with PlanetScale.

What is HIPAA

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a federal law that, among other things, sets privacy and security standards to protect sensitive patient health information. Under HIPAA, the use and disclosure of Protected Health Information (PHI) is governed by the HIPAA Security Rule, Privacy Rule, and Breach Notification Rule.

There is no formal certification recognized by the Department of Health and Human Services for HIPAA. PlanetScale has worked to ensure that our security and privacy measures meet HIPAA requirements.
