I haven't worked remotely before, what platform should I use?

If you are offering online video call sessions, you should always use a service that has encryption turned on - ideally end-to-end encryption between the client's and your device. 

Google Duo, Whatsapp and Facetime all offer end-to-end encryption as standard. You should make sure that you can receive calls from contacts who are not in your address book in order to be able to start a session with your client. 

The following services - doxy.me, zoom.us and vsee.com - offer end-to-end encryption and explicitly HIPAA compliant services. These services provide you with a unique url that you can send to clients to join you online.

Skype offers encryption but it is not end-to-end unless you have enabled private conversations (currently audio only). However, a Skype session is fully encrypted between your device and the Skype servers, so it is not possible to intercept the connection for eavesdropping purposes.

If you have not held a session online before, test joining a video call from your chosen device and check that your microphone and camera are working adequately.
