Zoom for PHI

Zoom for PHI may be used for meetings involving Protected Health Information (PHI) in accordance with HIPAA regulations. Zoom for PHI is a different tool than the regular campus instance of Zoom. Each University of Illinois campus has its own Zoom PHI Portal. Instructions for each campus are provided in the following table. Please note that this solution is unavailable for UI Health staff, nor should Zoom be used as an alternative for telehealth services.
