HIPAA Regulations
At Platinum Transcription, we have implemented the required policies, procedures and systems in response to the requirements of the HIPAA Final Rule of February 20, 2003

EXCEEDING REQUIREMENTS

Platinum Transcription not only meets but exceeds the requirements as set forth by the Final Rules. These areas include but are not limited to:

1. Standards for administrative simplification, including the standards for electronic transactions, the national standard health care provider identifier, and the national standard employer identifier;

2. Standards for electronic signatures and the security of electronic individually identifiable health information; and

3. Standards for privacy of individually identifiable health information.

Platinum Transcription has developed and implemented the necessary Business Associate Agreements, destruction of PHI policies, HIPAA training policies and other such protocols, methods, practices, software and the like which ensure the meeting of the security required for the maintenance of the confidentiality of PHI (Protected Health Information) as well as the security and encryption methods and applications to ensure the security of our systems, products, applications, and networks.

Platinum Transcription believes that the continued successful implementation of the standards for administrative simplification in great part will depend upon the parallel efforts of its partners. To the extent that protected information in Platinum Transcription databases is accessible to its partners, the cooperation of those partners has been and will continue to be an essential ingredient in the design and implementation of the security mechanisms, such as access control, authorization control, and user authentication. Platinum Transcription works with its partners to ensure the timely and effective implementation of our respective compliance measures.

Platinum Transcription is committed to ensuring that its services, systems, and operations can be integrated into a user environment that will support ongoing compliance with the electronic transactions, security, and privacy standards as currently regulated under the Final Rules. We ensure that our Clients have at their disposal the tools to meet their requirements as well as the federal regulations for security and privacy of PHI.
