HD Video Conferencing and HIPAA Compliance
Keep HIPAA Compliance with WebConference.com™
Protecting a patient's privacy has always been top priority in the healthcare industry. Now with the cost savings realized with online medical records, prescription ordering and medical consultations, it is very important that your web conferencing solution is compliant with HIPAA regulations. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans and employers. In short, HIPAA requires that medical information be kept private.
What this means for your web conferencing solution is that it needs to be fully secure with an end-to-end encryption to include audio, video and information sharing in order to be in compliance. WebConference.com™ video conferencing appliance is the only web conferencing solution that is compliant with HIPAA regulations.
All web conferencing is Internet based. For any Internet application, two types of security measures - transmission and access - must work together to ensure adequate security: WebConference.com™ video conferencing appliance uses both SSL and proprietary encryption. This means the transmission of user and meeting passwords as well as meeting IDs over the Internet is always SSL encrypted. In addition, WebConference.com™'s on-premise solution works behind your firewall giving you added protection for remote access during your meetings. Other hosted solutions such as WebEX or GotoMeeting lack a certain amount of security because they are an Internet web conferencing service that works outside your firewall and may not provide the adequate security from hackers
WebConference.com™ is an on-premise appliance that is easy to use, very affordable and provides you with the necessary security because you own it and you control it. When you deploy our web conferencing appliance you can use it behind your firewall for internal meetings only or DMZ for both internal and external meetings.
HIPAA regulations stipulate that all methods available should be used to ensure patient privacy, so why take a chance on a hosted web conferencing solution? WebConference.com™ offers the protection you need as well as compliance with the HIPAA law.
