Box gets HIPAA Compliance

Box.netApplications that target the medical industry need to comply with stringent rules, especially when it comes to security of patient data. One such compliance is the HIPAA standard and developers often feel daunted to meet those regulations. If you are looking at storing medical data in the cloud, the news that popular file sharing service Box.net is now HIPAA compliant and by the nature of building your application on top of its API, you get HIPAA compliance too. Box recently acquired Crocodoc, a service that converts documents into HTML5 based interactive experiences and the medical files put into the cloud could magically transform into interactive viewers instead of just the plain list and download.
