The healthcare industry is facing significant eDiscovery management challenges given its rapidly changing landscape
(PRWEB) July 22, 2011
TERIS announced today that it has entered into new National Services Agreements with four large and renowned national healthcare firms.
Though the Agreements, TERIS will provide end-to-end litigation support services to each firms’ respective corporate legal department. Primary service offerings will include: Data Forensics, eDiscovery Processing, Data Hosting, and other related services. This announcement comes on the heels of TERIS’ success in signing National Services Agreements earlier this year with five major oil, gas and energy giants.
“The healthcare industry is facing significant eDiscovery management challenges given its rapidly changing landscape,” commented Kip Hauser, TERIS’ Chief Operating Officer. “We’ve built our eDiscovery teams to address key legal issues, such as those facing major healthcare-related companies. Our flexible business model has allowed us to adapt to the some of unique needs of the healthcare industry and we're honored that the legal departments of these major companies trust us with such critical work on their behalf.”
With new amendments to the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, eDiscovery is fast becoming an important factor in how healthcare organizations manage their electronic records – especially in terms of how physicians and attorneys manage and disclose patient information, and guard against medical malpractice and liability litigation.
TERIS serves the healthcare profession by assisting firms with their eDiscovery process; helping physicians adhere to privacy and security regulations with respect to the protection of confidential patient information; and paving the way for electronic healthcare records to fulfill their potential to revolutionize medicine and healthcare through increased efficiency, and error reduction.
TERIS’ healthcare clients are located throughout the United States, and the company is in the process of signing similar agreements with additional healthcare organizations and Fortune 500 companies. Additional announcements regarding these developments will be made in the near future.
