Summit Counseling Center Uses HIPAA Compliant Zoom Platform
The Summit Counseling Center would like to respond to recent security concerns raised in a variety of media reports regarding the Zoom Video-conferencing Platform.
- The Summit has partnered with Zoom to offer a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform to host our VideoTherapy Program.
- The Summit uses “Zoom for Healthcare” – the premium HIPAA-compliant version of Zoom specifically designed for end-to-end encryption of data
- The Summit has signed a HIPAA Business Associate Agreement with Zoom which ensures that additional safeguards and additional accountability to ensure protection of our client’s Personal Health Information.
- These additional features include a virtual “Waiting Room” which allows therapists to carefully admit each participant into a Zoom Therapy Session AND to prevent any unauthorized participant from entering – thus providing a further barrier against the “Zoombombing” that has been reported in the media.
The Summit takes every precaution to protect the confidentiality of our clients and secure their PHI. To read more about Zoom’s Message to their users visit their updated response at: https://blog.zoom.us/wordpress/2020/04/01/a-message-to-our-users/
