PINNACLE OUTLOOK SERVICES
Setting a new standard of excellence in Medical & IME/Peer Review Transcription Services
   
 

Compliance with HIPAA Requirements

The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 required the United States Department of Health and Human Services to develop standards for the maintenance and transmission of health information associated with individual patients.

HIPAA is difficult for most organizations to digest and understand, let alone implement policies to be in compliance. Furthermore, there are significant criminal, civil, and financial penalties for non-compliance.

When working with Pinnacle Outlook Services, feel secure in knowing that Pinnacle Outlook Services is a HIPAA compliant and certified vendor. More importantly, know that our web-based system ensures that your medical transcription process will be HIPAA compliant as well.
