To ensure a secure exchange of sensitive data in digital healthcare delivery, federal standards have been set within the past 25 years; including the Health Insurance Privacy and Portability Act (HIPAA). Digital health innovators are then tasked with crafting solutions to improve access and experience of healthcare delivery while maintaining compliance to the standard protections outlined in HIPAA.

For telemedicine solutions including video visits, a major challenge is utilizing a reliable, secure, yet intuitive video client or network connectivity. Most televisit or video conferencing solutions center around a proprietary platform or software application that can control the exchange is encrypted and within federal regulations.
