In 2016 Alaska passed laws that now allow for the use of telemed services in Alaska. The primary reason, or goal, for telemed is to increase access to, and availability of healthcare services throughout Alaska.
Nick is using a HIPPA secure messenger service from VSee (www.vsee.com). This service is more secure than messenger services such as Skype or Facebook Messenger. The Alaska state law requires the use of the most secure means of transmitting protected health information from counseling. The service is free for the basic messenger app.
If you have any questions about telemed, please contact Nick or Kim.
