With a third of humanity now in lockdown, video conferencing is quickly becoming a normal way to communicate, whether it’s a business meeting, attending class or chatting with friends and family.

Pabau video conferencing helps you to be compliant in a few ways:
1) It protects data privacy in that all video communication is securely encrypted and transmitted from point-to-point such that even Pabau does not have access to any information that may be communicated.
2) Pabau agrees to be responsible for keeping all patient information secure and to immediately report any breach of personal health information.
3) Pabau does not store video transmissions.
Embrace the lockdown while maintaining standards!
