SYPE and HIPAA

Is it ok to Skype and still be in compliance with HIPAA?
Answer
Answer

No.

Skype is not HIPAA compliant and does not offer a Business Associate Agreement. The use of Skype is for personal and non-commercial use. Customers are permitted to use personal Skype accounts for business communications.

For HIPAA-compliant communications, please use Skype for Business.
