In 1996 Congress passed the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The purpose of this Act was to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of the healthcare system through the development of established health data standards and requirements for the transmission and storage of electronic health information.
Merit Tech products and services have been designed to fully comply with HIPAA requirements. HIPAA is the first national regulation on medical privacy and is the most far-reaching federal legislation affecting the use, release and transmission of medical data.
At Merit Tech we understand that the patient / physician confidentiality is of the utmost importance. Therefore all transcription related procedures, data storage, voice files and Electronic Record Management (ERM) systems meet or exceed HIPAA regulations.
Merit Tech is committed to providing solutions that are compliant with all applicable laws and regulations.
