Zoom is having a great time demonstrating our telemedicine solution at ATA 2015, booth #1917!

The Zoom team, along with Dr. Wesley Valdes, have had the chance to speak with many medical professionals so far at ATA. ATA keynote speaker Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong even stopped by for a quick demo of Zoom Rooms!

We’ve learned a lot about the telemedicine needs of medical practitioners, so we thought we’d address their top questions here:

1. How is Zoom different from ________ ?

Great question! Here are a few of the reasons we’re the best solution for connecting with patients, conferring with specialists, educating your care teams, and more…

  • Zoom combines cloud video conferencing, group messaging, and collaboration tools such as screen sharing, co-annotation, and remote control into one simple platform.
  • It runs across Mac, PC, iOS, Android, Blackberry, H.323/SIP systems, and our own software-based conference room system Zoom Rooms.
  • We’re the only video conferencing solution that lets you share your mobile screen and share video with audio.
  • Zoom is about 80% less expensive than other business-grade platforms, making it the most affordable solution on the market.

2. Is Zoom HIPAA-compliant? Is it secure?

Yes and yes! Zoom is fully HIPAA-compliant and is secured with AES-128 bits end-to-end encryption. Learn more about our HIPAA compliance and security.

3. Can I integrate Zoom into my platform?

Yes, Zoom has an API plan that allows you to integrate our video, screen sharing, and group messaging services into your platform. Learn more about this flexible solution by joining our next webinar All About Zoom API.

4. Is Zoom a web-RTC platform?

Zoom runs on a lightweight downloaded client or app on each participant’s device, so it is not web-RTC based. This is because web-RTC is a very limited solution that would not allow us to provide all the excellent features that our users have come to expect from us. Please note that even though Zoom does require a download, only the host must have an account, so it is still very easy for patients and other first time users to join.

Today or tomorrow, be sure to stop by booth #1917 to learn more about how Zoom can transform your telemedicine practice. We’re happy to answer all your questions! We also encourage you to sign up for a free live demo to try this amazing solution for yourself!
