Video Teleconferencing Companies Claiming “HIPAA Compliance”

HIPAA-Compliant Video CompaniesAs leaders in risk-management for telemental health (i.e., telepsychiatry, telepsychology, online therapy, distance counseling, telenursing, telespeech pathology), the TeleMental Health Institute is delighted to bring you a list of names and links to service companies which offer you:

  1. Video-conferencing services that meet the requirements for you to be HIPAA-compliant
  2. A signed “Business Associate Agreement” which is required by law, as per the HIPAA Omnibus Act (January, 2013)

Whose Job Is It?

Video service providers are not obligated to tell health providers about their professional obligations or related mandates. As HIPAA “covered entities” however, clinicians serving US citizens need to use technology that is complaint with all relevant state, provincial and federal laws. Providers in other countries must be compliant with relevant laws in the countries whose citizens they serve. For more information about these issues, you may want to consider taking TMHI courses or webinars to be sure you have mastered needed competencies related to legal, ethical and clinical risk-management issues before using any technology to serve clients or patients who rely on your professionalism.
