HIPAA Medical Transcription

 

HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).

Medical Transcription Services (MTS) are dedicated to levels of security which meet and in many cases exceed the standards of HIPAA.

We work closely with our clients regarding HIPAA and provide a number of security options. All our security is reviewed on a ongoing basis to ensure we are always up to date with the latest technology enhancements.

 

It concerns us when we hear from clients who have in the past used a transcription company who emailed their reports to them. Email is unsecure and not a delivery method which should be used. Our customers have secure access to our file system for encrypted retrieval of reports.

 

 

Physical Access

 

Our file servers are all kept in secure premises with fire protection and monitored 24 hours a day. All access to our servers is restricted to only a small number of our technical staff.

 

 

Data Encryption

 

Files sent or received from Medical Transcription Services (MTS) use a minimum of 128-bit encryption. This is the same level of encryption used by government and banking institutions.

 

 

Audit Trails

 

From the point of dictation to the receipt of our completed reports we have a full audit trail of all activity. Our system logs every detail of access. When our doctors login and send a file, rename a file, download a file, delete a file, we have a full audit log of every step second by second.

 

 

Fire

 

Smoke and fire detection monitoring 24 hours a day. With personnel onsite 24 hours our data centers have the latest in fire detection and fire suppression technology.
