AWS has expanded its HIPAA Compliance Program to include Amazon Simple Queue Service (SQS). Amazon SQS is a fully managed message queuing service for reliably communicating between distributed software components and microservices – at any scale. If you have an executed Business Associate Agreement (BAA) with AWS, you can now use Amazon SQS to build HIPAA-compliant applications and store and transmit messages between healthcare systems, including messages containing protected health information (PHI). Information about HIPAA eligible services on AWS can be found at our HIPAA Compliance page.
