I am building an application that will have PHI in it. I wanted to know if Quickbase is federally compliant with including this information on applications and living in the cloud? Currently you are only able to sign into QB if you have a agency ID so there is limited access but I'm not sure if QB servers are federally compliant.

HIPAA compliance needs to be done at the Application (Your App) level, rather than at the Platform (Quick Base) level. 
If you contact support and have a sales rep contact you, QuickBase will sign a Business Agreement which basically says that if and when you cease to use QuickBase, they will delete all the data.

I agree with Blake that the security if the data is largely dependent on your password security. QuickBase now allows Two Factor Authentication as an option.
