Our HIPAA certification allows our clients to share confidential patient information with us while still complying with their own HIPAA obligations.
New York, NY (PRWEB) October 6, 2009
QuisLex, a premier offshore legal services provider, today announced that it has received its Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (1996) (HIPAA) certification from HIPAA Conformance Certification Organization (HCCO), Inc., a U.S. certifying agency. QuisLex is the first and only pure-play LPO to have received a HIPAA certification.
HIPAA compliance addresses the security and privacy of personal health information by requiring administrative, physical and technical safeguards and emphasizing stringent security standards and implementation specifications. "Global healthcare, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are increasingly seeking out our services," stated Sirisha Gummaregula, COO of QuisLex. "Our HIPAA certification allows our clients to share confidential patient information with us while still complying with their own HIPAA obligations."
Since its inception, QuisLex has been at the vanguard of the LPO industry with its quantitative and process-driven approach to quality. "Achieving HIPAA certification is the latest in a series of security and quality benchmarks QuisLex has set for the industry," said Michel Sahyoun, CTO of QuisLex. "Three years ago, we were the first LPO to receive the ISO 27001 certification, and earlier this year we were the first LPO to be recognized as a SAS 70 Type II service provider. This latest certification gives our clients added confidence that our rigorous processes, advanced technological infrastructure and culture of confidentiality will keep their critical data safe and secure."
