Is OpenEMR HIPAA-compliant?

Does OpenEMR time-date stamp everything?

@JDD
OpenEMR is HIPAA compliant.

HIPAA simply states that everyone must use industry standard measures to protect patients private health information. But it is not only the software, it is the environment that you run the software within. If your environment is not secure, then the software is at risk. OpenEMR community of developers has vastly improved the internal security design of OpenEMR so that it exceeds the requirement of HIPAA to use industry standard security measures.
