Zoom Video Communication, a San Jose, CA-based provider of enterprise video and web communications technology has launched its Epic EHR-integration enabled cloud-based video telehealth platform. The platform named Zoom for Health offers a standard feature set for healthcare enterprises and providers, enabling reliable, HIPAA-compliant communications between organizations, care teams, and patients.
The Epic EHR integration incorporates Zoom into Epic record and communications workflows. Context-aware links are used to launch a Zoom video visit with a patient or other caregiver directly from the Epic applications’ telehealth workflows. This linking provides a streamlined workflow for end users to chart in Epic Hyperspace while easily launching into Zoom for the video conference. Similar workflows can be implemented in Epic MyChart, Haiku, and Canto. This level of integration works on Epic versions back to Epic 2014.
“At Zoom, we pride ourselves in creating user-friendly, secure virtual environments to connect healthcare enterprises, caregivers, and consumers for the best care experiences. Now, with the introduction of Zoom for Telehealth and the Epic integration, we are further streamlining and simplifying the process for healthcare administrators and their end users to deploy and use Zoom for healthcare,” said Eric S. Yuan, Founder and CEO of Zoom in a statement.
