10 Best HIPAA-Compliant Video Conferencing Systems

10 Best HIPAA-Compliant Video Conferencing Systems

With more people choosing to go remote in lieu of in-person communication, finding the best video conferencing system that works for you is difficult. There are so many options to choose from. Since the rise of Covid-19, the demand for telemedicine as an option for medical communication is rapidly rising. Businesses in healthcare are rushing to meet patient demands while learning to navigate rising concerns of virtual security and staying HIPAA-compliant. Keeping patient data and privacy secure and protected while functioning in a nearly 100% virtual capacity is a healthcare provider’s priority.

Staying HIPAA-Compliant Virtually

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 is a set of rules and regulations that monitor the security and privacy of patient health information (PHI). This means strict monitoring of PHIs that may be communicated and transmitted through video, audio, or text. 

With telehealth booming since Covid-19, the security of a patient’s data and medical record is the prerogative of healthcare providers and business associates. Because of the nature of being remote, the likelihood of a security breach of patient information increases. Hence, figuring out which video conferencing system offers the best and most updated software solutions while staying HIPAA-compliant is important. As you’re deciding which video conferencing system to use for your organization, consider these three aspects that are the foundation for HIPAA compliant video conferencing: general virtual security, end to end encryption, and data storage. 

General Virtual Security

It’s obvious, but most people don’t consider the general virtual security of a video conferencing system. To make sure you stay HIPAA-compliant, the very least you can do is to ensure the security of your organization’s basic information.

Features like a two-step authentication process ensure that your basic log-in information and your virtual appointments stay confidential without the malignant interruption of a security breach. Most two-step authentication processes require an SMS passcode/phone call and an email verification code or link. Allowing access only to authorized users through this process on both the patient and provider’s end reduces the chances of a security breach while staying HIPAA compliant.

End-to-End Encryption

End-to-end encryption (E2EE) covers the technical safeguard aspect of PHI and ePHI security as regulated by the HIPAA Security Rule. End-to-end encryption protects and limits the network communication to only the authorized users with the appropriate information to unlock sensitive patient information and data. This means that when patient information and data like ePHIs are transmitted through a network, the data can travel protected from interference and breaches until in the safety of its recipient.

Data Storage 

Data storage is one of the most important features to safeguard in telehealth. In accordance with HIPAA regulations, only the direct healthcare provider is able to store sensitive patient data and information. So ensuring that your choice of video conferencing system offers high security for data storage is the prerogative of a healthcare provider.

This might seem overwhelming, but with the proper HIPAA-compliant video conferencing system, you and your organization will be able to work safely in telehealth. To get you started, here are 10 HIPAA-compliant video conferencing systems to use.
