Does Slack enable HIPAA compliance?

At present, the company doesn’t state that Slack enables HIPAA compliance, but it seems that HIPAA compliance may be achieved if the customer has a Slack Enterprise Grid Plan and a signed Business Associate Agreement (BAA).

HIPAA enablement likely only applies to the messaging and file transfer features of Slack and not to any other Slack features. Caution should be used before relying on the Slack app to communicate with patients, plan members, or their families or employers. With Slack Enterprise Grid, healthcare companies can integrate Slack with their existing medical records system to share and control medical data as part of an overall HIPAA solution.
