For a startup product to gain trust and widespread adoption, it must adhere to the stringent regulations outlined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). This case study presents the efficiently executed HIPAA compliance implementation for a growing healthcare startup product in the USA, ensuring data protection, patient privacy, and regulatory compliance.
