What is HIPAA Compliance?
Are you in the USA and are required to be HIPAA Compliant?
HIPAA, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, sets the standard for protecting sensitive patient data. Any company that deals with protected health information (PHI) must ensure that all the required physical, network, and process security measures are in place and followed.
One of the biggest concerns for Professionals, their customers and clients who use web conferencing technology is SECURITY.
“Will I be able to meet with my clients securely while using the conference room?”
Medical, Legal, Financial and Mental Health professionals are just a few who demand the best security available.
Used by professional therapists, Live Conference PRO™ is a full-feature web conference system that allows you to meet with your clients in a confidential and secure environment.
Let us explain how our competition works and then we will explain how we are different.
Most of our competitors use a system called “PeerToPeer” which, simply put, is that they use the IP address of your computer and the IP address of your client to transfer the data. This type of system requires that the data stream be encrypted so that it can not be captured (viewed) by a third party.
Live Conference PRO™ security is provided first by the username / password issued to a Host account. The Host in turn can choose to generate a Guest login with a unique password. Security is further provided by the SSL (256bit Encrypted Secure Socket Layer) connection each person makes to the meeting room.
Furthermore, you can set your Guest passwords to expire within 24 hours, days or weeks. Each time you invite that client they will receive a new password.
In addition, you have the ability to “lock” your room. Once in session you can “lock” the door, so to speak.
All of these measures ensure that you are able to meet with your client in confidence, whether using video, audio, file sharing, and text chat.
At Live Conference PRO™, we understand that security is your number one priority when meeting with your clients, so we are happy to offer a HIPAA Business Associate Contract to those in the Health Profession.
