I'm building a new website, that may be subject to HIPAA. But I won't normally need access to the data. If I encrypt, or somehow encode, the personally identifiable parts, so only the user can decrypt or decode them, would HIPAA still apply?
This is related to my other question about avoiding HIPAA.
edit: I should add that my original idea was to have each user store their own data, since I don't have any need for it. The only reason I'm considering storing it for them, is so they can easily access it from anywhere.
