Now you can have a Virtual Consultation with the Capital Region’s Top Vein Specialist, Dr. Fort.
Dr. Fort is among a growing number of physicians offering online consultations with Apple’s FaceTime and Skype. Dr. Fort believes that utilizing the iMac, iPad and iPhone’s front-facing camera will give patients more opportunity to have an initial consultation.
Apple’s FaceTime video calling feature is one of the most popular features on the iPad and iPhone. The introduction of FaceTime video chat has created a lot of interest for patients; however, many healthcare providers were concerned about potential patient privacy issues and HIPAA compliance.
According to Apple, FaceTime adheres to HIPAA standards and is compliant through proper configuration. Apple creates a unique ID for each FaceTime user to ensure calls are properly routed and connected in a secure manner.
