Jitsi is a free and open source, fully encrypted video conferencing solution that you can use all day, every day, for free - with no account needed. You can also download it for free and run it internally at an organisation not only for staff but for customers and partners too.

Some of its features are:
* Auto-view the active speaker or click on any attendee to see their video
* Android and iOS apps
* Text chatting (web only)
* Lock a room with a password

THERAPlatform is an all in one practice management system. The video portion features ability to use an interactive whiteboard, view videos, share documents and write progress notes during video sessions (as well as in-person sessions). It's secure and HIPAA-compliant. I have no affiliation with THERAplatform and am currently trying it out. On trial, it had better connectivity than experienced with other HiPAA-compliant video systems.

Whereby easy to use - no extra downloads. (privacy compliance unknown)
