Today marks another big step in the forward progress of Cisco Spark for its adoption in enterprises worldwide. Cisco Spark is now ready for use in healthcare consistent with customer needs for HIPAA compliance!

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) is a U.S. healthcare law that establishes requirements for the use, disclosure, and safeguarding of individually identifiable health information. It applies to doctors’ offices, hospitals, health insurers, and other healthcare companies with access to patients’ protected health information (PHI). It also, as a byproduct, applies to companies that provide B2B services to these healthcare providers — such as cloud service providers like Cisco Spark.
