Skype is HIPAA compliant. Microsoft will sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA). Access control and activity logs are also available for some of Microsoft’s Enterprise plans.

Skype is one of the most well-known video conferencing tools, and hundreds of millions of people worldwide use it. Since being acquired by Microsoft in 2011, Skype has been available on Windows PCs by default. That’s why so many medical practitioners use it. But no software can be HIPAA compliant on its own. Skype must be configured properly to be HIPAA compliant.
