Dead Simple Screen Sharing and HIPAA Compliance

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). Public law 104-191, sets the standards for protecting patient data. Specifically, if you are transmitting any patient data over the internet it should be viewable only by the invited participants.

DeadSimple achives this by going above and beyond traditional screen sharing and audio/video conferencing solutions, by hosting the entire software application on your server and by encripting the transmitting data. So, DeadSimple does not even have access to the encripted patient health information.

Your data can be hosted on your personal servers or on any of the cloud service providers with only your organisation having access keys to it.

All the data that we transmit is AES 256 bit encrypted.
