We want to use Shiny to create a mental health app that will be used in a Psychology Clinic housed in a university. Based on a post on March 23, 2016, I understand that Shinyapps has "made no specific effort to ensure shinyapps.io is HIPAA compliant" and, at least then, was "not currently on the 12-18 month roadmap to do so."
Two questions. First, is this still the case? Second, if one develops an app using Shiny, and develops it such that it meets recommendations for HIPAA compliance, is this satisfactory?
I'm an academic and we just don't have the funds to purchase our own Shiny Server Pro on AWS's HIPAA compliant infrastructure. Thanks for any help in advance!
