Why Working With A HIPAA Compliant Trained Company Is Important
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was formed to ensure the proper handling of medical information and records by people, organizations and their business associates. The whole essence of the HIPAA Privacy rule is all about confidentiality and keeping data private and secure.
When it comes to scanning aircraft records, owners and operators take security and privacy seriously. Choosing a HIPAA compliant trained company, and SOC 2 scanning partner, can be very important since the employee training is very stringent and vital information is locked down. Why take the risk of an unqualified vendor to later find out that such information was leaked out to the public?
How does HIPAA training transfer to scanning aircraft records?
Lost or damaged aircraft records have been estimated to be as valuable as 10% to 30% of the value of an aircraft. Since document scanning businesses deal with all types of valuable and sensitive documents, it is imperative for the entire staff to be trained on how to securely handle these documents while in their possession, from document pick-up through scanning, indexing, data transfer, and delivery.
Keeping current is important in earning the HIPAA compliant badge.
One of HIPAA training rules for employees is to be periodically educated on a timely basis of the latest in security, privacy and processes that protect personal information. This training makes employees handling business aviation records that much stronger and protective of such a valuable asset. In the space of a year, the federal rule and regulation can be altered, and hence, employees need to stay up to date.
Why should an aircraft owner/operator choose a HIPAA compliant trained company for scanning?
The main reason for choosing a HIPAA compliant trained company is peace of mind. Working with a vendor whose staff has been trained and fully understands the responsibility of handling sensitive document scanning projects in a secure and confidential manner gives owners/operators peace of mind.
