How secure is Office 365? Is it HIPAA complaint?

I’m attracted to Office 365 instead of continuing to use traditional software based Office. The overall cost should be lower, and it is quicker and easier to scale a cloud based service than it is to purchase and physically install additional software. However, there is a lot of information about both my customers and company that needs to be secure and meet HIPAA security and privacy requirements. Does Office 365 meet HIPAA requirements for security?
