Lori Leroy, owner of Accuracy-Plus said, “I want to make sure that I’m providing clients with HIPAA compliant remote deposition platform that saves my clients time and money.”
Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) June 03, 2016
In an effort to improve the quality of service of remote depositions, Sacramento Court Reporting Firm Accuracy-Plus has moved to Cisco’s WebEx platform.
Clients who were looking to save money on travel costs had approached court reporter Lori Leroy, owner of Accuracy-Plus about using free consumer grade video chat software for remote depositions. While doing research, Ms. Leroy found that many of the popular free programs available did not have the encryption features necessary for HIPAA compliance.
HIPAA or the Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act of 1996 was a bi-partisan bill passed by Congress and signed by President Bill Clinton. Among other things, HIPAA regulates the disclosure of protected health information. Court reporters must adhere to HIPAA rules when undergoing a remote deposition.
Cisco’s website states the importance of its privacy compliance program and in March 2012 Cisco obtained Safe Harbor certification for customer and partner data.
