LifeSize Brief: Are Video Conference Solutions HIPAA Compliant?
Products and technology are not inherently HIPAA compliant or non-compliant. Organizations are. There is no governing agency, commission or standards body that certifies HIPAA compliance. It is up to you to determine and maintain your own compliance with the HIPAA Privacy and Security rules.
Some video conference solutions are better than others at helping you maintain your HIPAA compliance. LifeSize is one of them. The important thing is for your video conferencing solution to have the flexibility and features to reflect and enforce your existing compliance policies. For example, the technical safeguards designed into LifeSize video conferencing products support password protection and AES encryption of video and audio data streams.
