Remote, Billable, Consultations
Non-Proprietary, HIPAA Compliant Video Solutions – Powered by Polycom CLOUD AXIS
The truth is, video solutions are quickly becoming a commodity for medical establishments to operate with for numerous beneficial reasons. Our core focus emphasizes consolidating and streamlining the ‘Doctor/Patient’ utilization of video, voice, and internet with one simple monthly rate. As video can often times be an expensive investment, we conveniently offer the service without the high costs of equipment ownership, maintenance, and management.
Words or an email only delivers about 7% of intended communication. If you use the phone you add another 38 % but body language adds 55% and that is why video services are so critical in internal and external communications. YipTel is a proven leader in the market when it comes specifically to delivery of video technologies. We guarantee an increase of productivity while still reducing costs and improving communications.
With the increase in bandwidth availability and the need to communicate faster and more efficiently, Video calling and Video solutions are growing exponentially. These services, under complete adherence to HIPAA compliance, allow Doctors and other professionals to bill their patients over completely secure video communication methodolgies.

Uses and Applications
Oftentimes, the physician and the care provider’s staff will want to augment their usual in-the-home visits with some regular “virtual visits” with the patient to more frequently monitor health status. These patients (and their families) feel more secure knowing they have the ability to press a single button on a video phone to set up a call with the patient’s care provider.

- Physician uses his existing office internet service for connectivity.
- Patient is an advanced TeleHealth standard user with hardware. with a video phone in his home.
- Patient uses their home DSL/Cable service for connectivity.
In this situation the healthcare provider will schedule regular “virtual visits” with some of his patients. Patient’s family has requested to be included in these virtual visits. Similar to other scenarios, remote mental health consultations could take place between hospitals, clinics, homes and much more.

HIPAA Video Calling Deployment Methods
Extend the power of Voice Calling with Integrated Video
The YipTel Desktop Client delivers integrated video calling from your computer. This allows your staff to efficiently communicate between each other over securely encrypted channels. This is available as part of our Advanced TeleHealth User feature set. The software easily integrates with existing webcams, provisioned IP video phones, and other industry standard end points.
YipTel’s powerful video platform also extends to your mobile devices with video calling integrated directly in to your mobile smartphone or tablet device. Such devices can integrate reliably and securely into point-to-point conversations or within HIPAA compliant video conferencing on the Cloud AXIS service.
Now that we have video capabilities on the desktop and mobile devices it only makes sense to leverage those to deliver Video Voice messages. You can then retrieve these from your YipTel Client and mobile applications for a true unified communications experience.
