Zoom Reaches Three Key Milestones Across Healthcare


We’re proud to announce that we’ve reached three key milestones across the health sector, with Zoom now DTAC and DCB0129: Clinical Risk Management ready and with a Data Security and Protection toolkit in place, giving healthcare organisations the confidence they need to make full use of our platform.

These milestones cement our commitment to helping the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) achieve its priorities to significantly increase the number of people it can diagnose, treat and care for, while reducing inequalities in access, including through use of video consultations. We also want to support the NHS as it transforms its services to deliver better care at home, create more virtual wards, and tackle COVID-19 backlogs.

The use of Zoom across the NHS has grown significantly over the last two years and we’ve seen NHS organisations enhance their delivery of care and patient outcomes by introducing virtual Zoom consultations and integrating it seamlessly with their electronic patient record (EPR) system. As the pace of innovation in telehealth continues to grow, we look forward to partnering with the NHS as it adopts new models of care that embrace the full potential of digital technologies – achieving a core level of digitisation across every service.

NHS accreditations

  • Digital Technology Assessment Criteria (DTAC)The DTAC gives staff and patients confidence that the digital health tools they use meet clinical safety, data protection, technical security, interoperability, usability and accessibility standards. Healthcare organisations can use it to assess suppliers at the point of procurement to make sure new digital technologies meet minimum baseline standards.
  • Data Security and Protection (DSP) ToolkitWe now have a DSP Toolkit in place, an online self-assessment tool that allows organisations to measure their performance against the National Data Guardian’s 10 data security standards. All organisations that have access to NHS patient data and systems must use this toolkit to provide assurance that they are practising good data security and that personal information is handled correctly.

The standards that Zoom now meets are important as they provide NHS staff and patients with the confidence that the digital health tools they are using meet stringent clinical safety, data protection, technical security, interoperability, usability and accessibility standards set out by the NHS.

Zoom’s Work Transformation Summit on Jan. 19: Fresh Approaches for Moving Forward

These past two years have undoubtedly reshaped work. More specifically, these past two years — shuffling between remote, in-person, and hybrid work scenarios — reshaped what employees expect out of their jobs, how they want to work, and what the office means to them.  Organizations are challenged with making big decisions to meet those expectations, and those decisions will dramatically alter how they hire, manage their facilities, buy technology, and maintain productivity. Simply adjusting policies and retooling previous work models won’t do. It takes a comprehensive reimagining. To help organizations navigate this next phase of work, Zoom is hosting our  Work Transformation Summit  on Jan. 19, a free, half-day virtual event designed to provide you and your organization with meaningful strategies, creative approaches, and innovative solutions for redefining work.  Summit attendees will have the opportunity to hear from peers and industry experts on the importance of embracing technolo

  We're making it simpler for instructors to use popular EdTech products that are most effective for their class right in Google Classroom with a new seamless integration of single sign-on, assigning, and grading. With the help of this feature, teachers can find, assign, and grade interesting content for their classes, and both teachers and students can access their EdTech tools without needing to navigate to other websites or apps or go through a cumbersome login process that requires remembering numerous usernames and passwords. This offers a more simplified experience when using technology to affect learning, in addition to saving instructors and students time. We partnered with 15+ EdTech companies to build custom add-ons, including Kahoot!, Pear Deck, IXL, and Nearpod.  Admins :  In order for educators to use add-ons, district administrators must provide access to them.
