Michigan Medicine, and the University of Michigan, at large, are in the early stages of enabling public cloud access for researchers with HIPAA-aligned data.  This journey brings technical, cost, compliance, and information assurance challenges. This discussion / presentation will briefly explore the University of Michigan’s and Michigan Medicine’s journey, to date, with HIPAA-aligned research on public cloud platforms – where we have stumbled, where we have had success, and points in between. Hopefully, it will be useful for you as you begin, or continue, your own journey.
