One of the greatest challenges for healthcare organizations and related entities is leveraging third-party tools to enable creativity and growth while navigating the complexities of HIPAA compliance.
At Vimeo, our goal is to strike the right balance between effective communication and creativity all while delivering solutions that meet the business needs of our users and customers. To better serve healthcare industry customers, Vimeo is offering Vimeo Enterprise customers a HIPAA-compliant solution for video hosting.
This solution entails Vimeo entering into business associate agreements (BAAs) with covered entities and business associates on eligible plans. Vimeo is dedicated to providing a world-class hosting solution that allows healthcare industry customers to embed videos, share medical advancements and updates, and better distribute content across teams using a compliant platform.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a U.S. federal law that requires privacy and security safeguards for protected health information (PHI). If you’re a covered entity or business associate subject to HIPAA, Vimeo can be configured for HIPAA-compliant video playback using our embeddable player. When a business associate or covered entity has executed a Business Associate Agreement with Vimeo and is using Vimeo Enterprise in accordance with our configuration requirements, Vimeo is deemed a business associate. Vimeo’s BAA describes the privacy and security standards we use to safeguard PHI.
