Ensuring compliance with federal standards.
Our document imaging and content management
systems are fast, accurate, secure – and cost-effective.

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires healthcare
providers and agencies to adopt federal standards for security, privacy and electronic healthcare transactions. Document imaging and management solutions will play a crucial
part in compliance, reduce man-hours and improve your bottom line.
Streamline Solutions provides document imaging that quickly and precisely archives,
retrieves and distributes electronic documents.
The entire records repository is safeguarded in a digital archive, on an on-site server, or
on an off-site server that are all secure from unauthorized use and quickly accessible to personnel with legitimate need for information. Security is easily managed by creating users and having passwords, which ensures confidentaility.

When selecting the best solution to meet HIPAA compliance we integrate
five key areas of concern:

› Disclosure Tracking - HIPAA regulations require that the health care provider
  track disclosures of personally identifiable health information to any internal or third party.
  This includes doctors, insurance providers, billing and claims processing, and all other
  entities that might have reason to review the information.
› Protected Disclosure -The Privacy Rule allows for certain types of disclosures that do not
  require authorization form the patient. These include1) to the individual, 2) treament,
  payment and healthcare operations, 3) disclosure with opportunity to object, 4) incidental
  use, 5) public interest and benefit activities, and 6) release of a limited data set.
  There is specific information that must be captured for each disclosure, and, in some
  situations, only a subset of the patient's record maybe disclosed.
› De-identification - There are no restrictions on the use of de-identification health
  information, and much of this type of information is used by the government, researchers,
  and health organizations in compiling statistics. De-identification requires the user to strip
  all personally identifiable information from the health document before it is passed on.
› Patient Authorization - A healthcare provider may not disclose protected health
  information (PHI) outside the scope of the HIPAA regulations without written authorization
  from the patient. This authorization must be obtained, recorded, and then maintained
  for a period of at least six years. In general, authorizations should be specific as to the
  information being disclosed, the person disclosing and receiving the information,
  expiration, etc., so a separate authorization is often required for each disclosure.
› Security - The Security Rule portion of the HIPAA regulations applies to the transmission
  of electronic protected health information (EPHI). The healthcare provider is to ensure the
  confidentiality, integrity, and availability of all EPHI the covered entity creates, receives,
  maintains, or transmits.
Our document imaging solutions will in addition, allow you to use your office space
efficiently, maintain accuracy of recorded information, lower expenses by saving search
costs for documents, safeguard your documents from any natural hazards and/or disasters, and increase worker productivity.
