Does PayPal enable HIPAA compliance?

PayPal’s website doesn’t state that it provides HIPAA compliance features for covered entities, so a covered entity should use caution before using the site to share or store protected health information (PHI).

HIPAA privacy rules require the protection of all “individually identifiable health information.” Demographic data and payment history fall into this category.
