Is Google Docs HIPAA compliant?

Yes, Google Docs is HIPAA compliant because Google will sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA).

Privacy settings for each Google Doc should be configured so that they cannot be viewed unless a user has permission. Titles shouldn’t contain any patient information. Link-sharing and automatic file syncing aren’t allowed for HIPAA compliance. Additional precautions are recommended, such as backing up Google Docs data.
