FAQs

How do I get started?
Review and become familiar with our APIs. When you’re ready, contact apisales@bluestreamhealth.com to find out more about plan types. Once you have signed up for a plan, we’ll execute a BAA and issue an API Key.

What are plan types based on?
Plan types are based on the total number of monthly participant video minutes and virtual care features available.

What happens once I sign up?
Depending on your deployment complexity, we may set up a requirements review, but in most cases we expect that our self-explanatory APIs will make your integration project easy and straightforward.

What is a typical deployment timeline?
We have seen typical deployments range from two to four weeks. However, timelines depend on your team’s resource allocation to integrate. If you were just integrating video visits you would be on the lower end of the time range, and if you were integrating a full telehealth infrastructure it would take longer.

What resources do I need on my side?
Ideally you would have a dedicated development resource on your end that would be responsible for the engineering required to integrate the Bluestream API into your existing service. Depending on complexity, that resource may need to interface with Bluestream’s API support members to complete their build.

Will you execute a BAA?
Yes, we require an executed BAA after you sign up for a plan, and before you receive your API Key.

Is this secure?
Our solution is built from the ground up to be the most secure video environment possible. Bluestream is HIPAA-compliant and trusted by many of the healthcare industry’s leading organizations. All communications are end-to-end encrypted, all data is encrypted at rest and in flight, and there are zero dependencies on third-party platforms. If you have specific questions concerning security, or would like to review our policies, please reach out to us at apisupport@bluestreamhealth.com.

What video platform do you use?
The Bluestream platform uses our own implementation of WebRTC.
