Is G Suite HIPAA compliant?

George Davidson

Yes, Google Workspace (formerly known as Google Suite or G Suite) is HIPAA compliant because it will provide a signed Business Associate Agreement (BAA). It also only allows authorized personnel to access ePHI and uses activity logs and audit controls to register attempts to access ePHI. There are several exceptions for certain products, which should be reviewed carefully before using G Suite for healthcare purposes.

Google uses ISO 27001 certification and SOC 2 and SOC 3 Type II audits. Its BAA covers many of the G Suite products, including Gmail, Google Calendar, and Google Drive (Google Docs, Google Sheets, and Google Slides). For Google Meet, however, the BAA only covers the chat messaging feature and doesn’t cover the video chat feature.
