Let's face it. The saying is true that "HIPAA ends at the border". It really doesn't matter how smoothly and sincerely any offshore company will tell you that they are HIPAA compliant, the simple fact of the matter is:
1. offshore companies know you can't effectively audit them
2. the federal government can't enforce laws in their country
Health care providers are simply better off using U.S. based services of companies that have to work carefully and compliantly under the shadow of U.S. federal law. It's one thing to tell a client you are HIPAA client in order to get an account. It's entirely another thing to be HIPAA compliant in order to avoid massive penalties from the federal government. Talk is cheap. Don't choose a company that merely claims to be HIPAA compliant. Choose a company that must be compliant.

to be that expensive. There are pre-packaged systems out there that can
