Is VSee HIPAA compliant?

Yes, all VSee services meet or exceed HIPAA security standards. Also, VSee will sign a Business Associate Agreement (BAA).

VSee provides HIPAA-compliant videoconferencing services, with secure encryption for all audio and video communication on its platform. These security standards are available for both free VSee accounts and paid subscriptions.

Since videoconferencing may involve the exchange of electronic data, including protected health information (PHI), it must meet HIPAA requirements for covered entities. VSee streams video directly from end point to end point, and never stores information on its servers or intercepts it. 

Covered entities must also consider how other video collaboration tools meet HIPAA security requirements. For example, videoconferencing can include screen-sharing, text chat, and file transfer. Videoconferences on VSee are always confidential, encrypted with FIPS 140-2 compliant, military-grade 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard.

VSee will sign a business associate agreement (BAA) for all customers, including those using a free VSee account. In this BAA, VSee agrees to maintain the security of patient information. If a breach occurs, the company agrees to provide an immediate report of the incident.
