Developers and HIPAA

iOS keychains for saving pass/access token is HIPAA complaint?

I am building a mobile application to facilitate the patients and I am accessing the PHI through RESTful web apis.

I want to clarify one thing that I surfed a lot on google recently is, if I save patient's password or access token for re-authentication in iOS keychains, then may I consider this approach or this would be vulnerable to save the passwords in iOS keychains and violates HIPAA compliance act?
