NEFSIS PROVIDES GUIDANCE FOR TELEMEDICINE AND
HIPAA COMPLIANCE WHEN USING ONLINE VIDEO CONFERENCING SERVICES
Nefsis Posts Summary Report and Adds
New Product Features to Help Expanding Telemedicine Operations Maintain
HIPAA Technical Safeguards
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — October 14, 2010 — Online
services innovator Nefsis® posted a report today that addresses
issues in HIPAA compliance for web and video conferencing in
telemedicine, telepsychiatry and remote clinic support operations.
Taking advantage of online service ubiquity, plug-and-play video
peripherals and already-in-place networks is a new approach to video
conferencing. It benefits budget-conscious health organizations and
those with far-flung operations. The new report addresses typical
questions regarding security and HIPAA compliance when implementing
multipoint video conferencing systems in a healthcare environment.
Unlike many consumer online services, Nefsis was designed for both
business-to-business as well as internal company web and video
conferencing. The technology evolved over a decade with
installations in financial services, healthcare, government and many
other security conscious business segments. In particular,
information technology (IT) operations that convey patient data must
meet Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
The report published by Nefsis addresses common areas of concern
such as the 'big picture' relationship between video conferencing
and HIPAA, authentication, encryption, integrity and meeting HIPAA
Technical Safeguards. In addition, it covers new Nefsis features and
options, such as an on-premise dedicated server and other
administrative controls over access and storage of conference
“Whether you’re looking at activating video conferencing online
services, installing a server, or updating a legacy stand-alone
system, questions regarding HIPAA invariably arise. We posted this
report to further simplify the video conferencing process for our
healthcare customers,” said Steven Peltier,
chief executive officer of Nefsis.
The summary report is available at the company’s website (Nefsis
video conferencing & HIPAA) and
by contacting Nefsis at (858) 715-0970.
