Zoom HIPAA Accounts

ATSU now has a specialized Zoom sub-account that meets HIPAA security requirements for video-conferencing.

Under the U.S. Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, a HIPAA business associate agreement (BAA) is a contract between a HIPAA covered entity and a HIPAA business associate (BA). The contract protects personal health information (PHI) in accordance with HIPAA guidelines.

Keep in mind that changing an existing Zoom user account to a HIPAA-compliant account will restrict some of the current features of the Zoom account.

  • End-To-End Encryption enabled for the meetings you schedule
  • Cloud Recording will be disabled for the meetings you schedule.
  • User information removed from Zoom reports for all meetings you schedule
  • Encrypted Chat enabled. (Screen capture and image transfer are disabled in Chat)

NOTE: These HIPAA-compliant features are enabled only for Zoom meetings scheduled by a HIPPA account.  If you attend a meeting scheduled by someone else who uses non-HIPAA Zoom account, the security features are NOT enabled for that call.

ATSU Persons who require HIPAA compliant video-conferencing may request a HIPAA Zoom user account by submitting a ticket at https://service.atsu.edu.
