Hi, this is Dave Kats with Therapist Consultants and I have a tip for you. With COVID-19 and all of the things that happened, a lot of people have moved to telehealth. When you move to telehealth, you want to have a HIPAA compliant package or platform that you use. People continually ask us, "What are the best HIPAA compliant platforms for therapists?"
Well, here is what I would suggest. If you have a software that has a telehealth platform that is HIPAA compliant, I would use that because it's usually cheapest and it's already attached to your software. If you don't have a software like that, then these are the ones that we see as being fairly good software. I won't put these in any particular order, but I have one at the end that I want to tell you about that I think is interesting.
You can do Skype for Business, you can do Microsoft Teams, you can do Upbox, VSee, which is the letter V and then S-E-E. You can do Zoom for Healthcare, you can do Doxy.me, you can do Google G-Suite Hangout Meet, and you can do Amazon Chime, you can do GoToMeeting, Spruce Healthcare Messengers, or the one that I think you might not know about right now that has been happening lately is Psychology Today. It has a very good platform and is put together specifically for therapists.
Those are some of the places you should look. If you have any other questions, just ask your other therapists around you what platforms they're using, and if they know for sure that they're HIPAA compliant. Now that you've established the fact that you may be doing some video telehealth in the future and for the distant future even, you might want to step up to one of the best platforms you can get for your profession.
This is Dave Kats. Thanks for listening.
