Zoom for Healthcare is endorsed by the British Columbia Ministry of Health as part of the COVID-19 emergency response. PHSA is provisioning accounts to eligible health-care users. These accounts are referred to as Zoom for Virtual Health Visits accounts.
Zoom for Virtual Health Visits is best used for scheduled or on-demand clinical appointments. It has screen sharing and chat functions that can be used for one-on-one or group sessions.
PHSA does not endorse the use of Zoom Basic (the free version) or Zoom Pro for hosting virtual health visits. These versions of Zoom do not meet privacy and security requirements for patient care.
