I haven't worked with cloud so i don't know how and if this would work...

I'm looking for a HIPAA compliant cloud storage. I want to have folders there. User can upload their documents there (with C# code,if possible) and I want to read them from my C# code (download them).

Is that doable?

You can also work within Onedrive or Google drive, to create folders for your codes.

Hi,
Do you only expect to have one place to "share" the codes, right?

Within OneDrive or Google drive, you can share whatever files or projects to others.
I want to upload and download using c#  code. Not manually.

Thanks,  Shaun. I'll read the link. It has to be HIPAA. I'll read the link and see.

HIPAA regulations require that covered entities and their business associates—in this case, Microsoft when it provides services, including cloud services, to covered entities—enter into contracts to ensure that those business associates will adequately protect PHI. These contracts, or BAAs, clarify and limit how the business associate can handle PHI, and set forth each party’s adherence to the security and privacy provisions set forth in HIPAA and the HITECH Act. Once a BAA is in place, Microsoft customers—covered entities—can use its services to process and store PHI.

Currently there is no official certification for HIPAA or HITECH Act compliance. However, those Microsoft services covered under the BAA have undergone audits conducted by accredited independent auditors for the Microsoft ISO/IEC 27001 certification.

Microsoft enterprise cloud services are also covered by FedRAMP assessments. Microsoft Azure and Microsoft Azure Government received a Provisional Authority to Operate from the FedRAMP Joint Authorization Board; Microsoft Dynamics 365 U.S. Government received an Agency Authority to Operate from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, as did Microsoft Office 365 U.S. Government from the US Department of Health and Human Services.

No cloud platform can be truly HIPAA compliant. ... It is the responsibility of the covered entity to ensure cloud instances are configured correctly. So Azure is not HIPAA compliant per se, but it does support HIPAA compliance, and incorporates all the necessary safeguards to ensure HIPAA requirements can be satisfied.
