Could be but then that would be incorrect and an indication of not understanding HIPAA.  The regs must and are written to be technology agnostic.  Much of the security rules are about procedures and "common sense" things- or at least things that could be taken for granted.  Certainly, some software might make compliance easier but that doesn't mean that pretty much any EMR/HIS solution can not be made HIPAA compliant if you know what you are doing.  Its also a bad idea to trust your security to someone else without active oversight.

I'm sure sales rep push the idea of their software being HIPAA compliant all the time though.

Or maybe they're worried about being not HIPAA-compliant in even the
slightest of ways, because you land and drown in shit creek when that

This reminds me why barely(?) anyone knows of any open source tax software…
