CloudVisit's™ Telemedicine Security Helps Doctors Open Their Practices To Online Patients, Not Risk

COLD SPRING, N.Y., Feb. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- As physicians explore ways to expand their practices, improve efficiencies, and better serve patients every idea must pass the rigorous scrutiny of HIPAA requirements for patient data and security. Telemedicine is no exception. The convenience and accessibility of the Internet demands that physicians make informed choices about communicating with patients online. Tremendous practice growth can be realized through telemedicine technology, but not all platforms offer adequate protection of patient information.

CloudVisit™ is a web-based telemedicine platform that stands out from the crowd in this regard. CloudVisit's telemedicine security prioritizes the safety and security of patient information every step of the way. "We designed each aspect of CloudVisit—from functionality to security—with the physician and the patient in mind," said CloudVisit president and chief executive officer Daniel Gilbert. "With CloudVisit, doctors can safely integrate online patient care such as telepsychiatry into their practice, without sacrificing the privacy of a closed-door patient encounter."

The obligation to patient privacy rang clear last month as a $50,000 HIPAA breach fine was placed on Hospice of North Idaho by the Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights. With the simple act of laptop theft, more than 400 unencrypted patient records became available to the wrong party. "This isn't a case against portable medicine or the use of laptops for more convenient patient care," believes Gilbert, "but it is a powerful reminder of the importance of safely communicating with patients and of choosing providers that properly safeguard patient information."

CloudVisit™ ensures fully-encrypted telemedicine

Telemedicine benefits patients and physicians and the concept of video appointments sounds simple. But before taking the leap into telemedicine doctors ought to consider what they're getting themselves into. Online patient communication should never be handled like a cavalier phone call or quick Skype chat.
