Above & Beyond News from The Common Source | May 2011
HIPAA Compliance and You  Thanks to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), your patient information and other medical records are more protected. However, some people have misconceptions about the regulations companies must follow to earn HIPAA compliance.  HIPAA requires a business to safely store, manage, and transmit electronic documents. It also establishes strict restrictions for access to patient documents and information, and enforces certain practices to ensure correct data disposal. In short, organizations must be considered HIPAA compliant — not technology. While technology can help the organization in its efforts to become HIPAA compliant, it cannot be the only factor. HIPAA compliance affects many heath care providers, including:  • Clinics • Dentists • Hospitals • Nursing Homes • Private Practice Physicians • Suppliers  In April 2007, The Common Source became 100% HIPAA compliant, and we’ve been committed to the protection of our clients and their health information ever since.

Did you know?  It’s a fact that paper reduces office productivity. Based on a 40 hour work week, 8 hours are wasted in paper management — that includes finding, sharing, distributing, storing, archiving and retrieving documents. That means the average employee spends approximately 400 hours per year organizing and searching for paper documents.  Source: Datapro/Gartner  Define your own reward.

You said it!  “I am very satisfied with the work done by the Common Source. They are always “Johnny-on-the-spot” with solutions to problems, and willing to work with me to find the best and most economical solution. On more than a few occasions the staff has dropped what they were doing to help for me to find solutions to a question or problem I having. I know if they don’t have the answer, they don’t leave it at that, but go the extra mile to find the answer, including reaching out to other vendors to get those answers. I will again use the Common Source for any and all types of document discovery, database, and/or other e-discovery and production solutions, and have and will always recommend them to anyone looking for a top-notch discovery vendor.
