Zoom Health accounts at IU

On this page:


Indiana University and Zoom have signed a Business Associates Agreement (BAA) to facilitate private, secure online collaborations for research, teaching, or administration involving the transmission of protected health information (PHI).

Zoom Health accounts are IU Zoom accounts that supply encrypted online collaborations for both video and chat, anonymized usage reports, and the disabling of cloud recording.

Following are some examples of Zoom collaborations that involve PHI and should be conducted using a Zoom Health account:

  • Distributed research team working sessions with patient data
  • Clinical researchers interviewing participants or participant teams as part of research projects
  • Distributed administrative or technical teams working directly with patient data

  • You can have only one Zoom account, either a standard Zoom account or a Zoom Health account.
  • Per HIPAA guidelines, IU Group accounts cannot be used to create or host Zoom Health meetings or create Zoom Health accounts.
  • All users of Zoom Health accounts must complete any appropriate HIPAA training.
