Lifesize Review for Telemedicine & Telehealth
WARNING: This product is NOT HIPAA compliant.
First and foremost, Lifesize is a video conferencing solution. This is not a solution that was designed from the ground up for healthcare and Telemedicine. You could do some generic, internal video conferencing, but Lifesize is not going to be a good option for your patients.
Facetime, Skype, and many other video tools are not HIPAA compliant so you’ll want to be very careful here to comply with state and federal regulations in regards to protecting personal health information.
You can have up to 50 participants and there is limited chat functionality with the video conferencing screen. Lifesize also consumes less bandwidth than other popular video conferencing tools.
This particular tool isn’t going to integrate with any of your back office tools like an EHR or practice management system. This is very important to consider is establishing a long-term solution for virtual care with your patients.
Lifesize was founded in 2003 in the United States.
We hope you enjoyed the Lifesize review and we wish you great success if modernizing care for your patients and clients.
