Whats App/FaceTime/Zoom HIPAA compliant?

Are Whats App/FaceTime/Zoom HIPAA compliant? If not, how are you working around that?  Thank you.

Some versions of these platforms are HIPAA compliant and some are not. It depends on what version the host institution has purchased. Each organization would have to determine if it has a HIPAA compliant version before using it for telehalth.

In California, we have had some discussions about virtual home visits that have included this very question. You may want to check out the webinar recordings at:   http://www.rampasthma.org/archives/15933 and http://www.rampasthma.org/archives/16138. https://youtu.be/rpyPTLAxNMU

If you work in the asthma sector and are exploring the use of communication platforms for telehealth services, it is imperative to confirm the HIPAA compliance status of any tools you intend to use. This is essential to guarantee that patient privacy and data security are adequately safeguarded. It is recommended to seek advice from legal and compliance experts to obtain the most precise and current information tailored to your specific circumstances.
