HIPAA

Medical offices manage an enormous amount of paper documents on a daily basis. From prescriptions, to insurance forms, billing papers to patient records, file cabinets quickly overflow with critical and private personal information.

HIPAA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. The United States act was founded in 1996 to protect medical records and any other personal health information. That includes documents that may be used to identify an individual, or documents that are exchanged either electronically or in hard copy.

Digital document management solutions are used in hospitals, medical offices and HR departments because they allow organizations to gain HIPAA compliance with ease. Access permissions allow only approved professionals to see important patient data, and automated destruction of old records ensures that offices remain compliant for years to come.

Intelligent indexing makes capturing and storing of important information seamless, and digital document storage allows medical offices to go paper-free. Receptionists and medical professionals can access regulated patient data in seconds with just a few clicks.
