Duke University, Emory University, Thomas Jefferson University, University of Iowa and University of Washington chose Office 365 after a consortium of leading technology, legal and compliance experts from the academic, public and private sector worked closely with Microsoft to develop a business associates agreement (BAA) to address HIPAA requirements. These institutions and medical schools represent 188,000 additional students, faculty and staff that are using the cloud productivity service. As a result of the collaborative efforts, Microsoft now offers the most comprehensive agreement available to HIPAA-covered entities that manage electronic-protected health information.

Thanks Verne for sharing!

 

Do I recall that you have been hosting regular calls on Office 365 etc for folks considering or doing the move?

Marg, Thanks for sharing, just a note--the BAA provides 30 day notification and meets the fed requirements, so it works for only those states that have 30 day notification. California and others states have a 5 day period, so even though USC is moving forward with 365, we plan to keep the Medical schools and private practices out of 365 system, at least for now. Hope other universities as they join in will help build momentum to help revise this deadline to 5 days across the nation, so we can all have a single system to deal with. (Verne- please add me to your list for 365 issues) Anna Knox, Marg wrote: > Thanks Verne for sharing! > > > > Do I recall that you have been hosting regular calls on Office 365 etc > for folks considering or doing the move? > > > > ____________________________________________________ > > Margaret H.

Anna, do you mind if I share with Jason Wilmot at MSFT (who does the contracts)? I thought this had gotten settled actually. ____________________________________________________ Margaret H.

Marg, No problems, please keep me in the loop, I would like to help. I worked with Jason Wilmot directly on the MS -365 contract, we went back and forth for a good 6 months+ and we were instrumental is fine tuning the BAA. He understands and was supportive of the decision by USC, but his hands are tied due to the MSFT policy. regards, Anna Knox, Marg wrote: > Anna, do you mind if I share with Jason Wilmot at MSFT (who does the contracts)?

Since Educause is right around the corner, we've been talking about holding the next Office365/Live@Edu call in early December.  For those unaware, Wright State University has held a series of conference calls among schools outsourcing email to Microsoft (and to a lesser extent, Google.)  The calls have been about once a quarter for the past 18 months or so.  We discuss a mix of topics on technical issues, support, contracts, security and some of the more experienced schools offer advice to schools just getting started. 

Once we pick a date, I'll post the announcement in the usual places.
