All VSee solutions are HIPAA secure as it meets (and even exceeds) HIPAA security standards (256 bit AES).
VSee has several characteristics that make it easy to protect the confidentiality of protected health information:
VSee uses a managed peer-to-peer architecture, where video (and other media) are streamed directly from endpoint to endpoint. Information is never stored on any VSee servers or intercepted by VSee in any way. The VSee management server is only used for address lookup, connection brokering, and system/user administration. This prevents information leakage between point A and point B.
Encryption adds another layer of security of VSee. All VSee traffic is encrypted with FIPS 140-2 certified 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard. No servers, including VSee’s, have access to the decryption keys. This keeps your videoconference absolutely confidential.
Local File Storage (of non-streaming media)
VSee allows users to record video conferences and keeps chat history that could be regarded as electronic protected health information (e-PHI). These files are stored on a user’s computer and are not accessible to VSee. Covered entities may securely save recorded conferences or chat histories to their own HIPAA compliant electronic health record (EHR) system.
For HIPAA compliance, a healthcare provider needs to sign a Business Associate Agreement with their video chat vendor (in this case, VSee). VSee offers the HIPAA-required Business Associate Agreement where VSee agrees to be responsible for keeping all patient information secure and to immediately report any breach of personal health information.
