HIPAA Compliant Medical Transcription Services

At Echo Documentation Solutions, we are committed to implementing the required policies, procedures and systems in response to the requirements of the HIPAA Final Rule of February 20, 2003. Under this regulation Echo Documentation Solutions shall meet the requirements as set forth therein by the dates and deadlines imposed by the Final Rules. In relation to HIPAA compliant medical transcription 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.

HIPAA and Electronic Medical Records - Protected Health Information

Echo Documentation Solutions has developed and implemented the necessary Business Associate Agreements, protocols, methods, practices, software and the like which meet the security levels 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.

Echo Documentation Solutions believes that the continued successful implementation of the standards for administrative simplification in great part will depend on the parallel efforts of its business partners. Similarly, to the extent that protected information in Echo Documentation Solutions databases is accessible to its business partners, the cooperation of those business partners has been essential in the design and implementation of the security mechanisms, such as for access control, authorization control, and user authentication. Echo Documentation Solutions is prepared to work with its business partners who are HIPAA-covered entities to ensure the timely and effective implementation of our respective compliance plans.

As a national provider of HIPAA compliant medical transcription, offering access to quality, affordable technology for the healthcare industry and its providers, Echo Documentation Solutions 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 of February 20, 2003. We look forward to perpetuating the development of tools needed to continually meet the evolving demands of consumers and federal regulations in the areas of security and privacy of PHI.
