Nefsis Posts Summary Report and Adds New Product Features to Help Expanding Telemedicine Operations Maintain HIPAA Technical Safeguards

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

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 (http://www.Nefsis.com/) 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) requirements.

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 documents.

“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 and by contacting Nefsis at (858) 715-0970.
