HIPAA Regulations Should Influence Your Choice of Court Reporting Service
As an attorney who regularly represents clients in the medical or insurance industries, you know the importance of HIPAA—the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996—which protects the privacy of individuals covered by the regulations. While you are well-versed in confidentiality, HIPAA regulations place a great emphasis on how you protect this information, and you can be held legally and financially liable if you are found in violation.
One person that many attorneys may not factor into their HIPAA compliance is their court reporter. Court reporters hear, record, and often store the same information that attorneys are privilege to in legal proceedings, and HIPAA regulations govern these men and women, as well. Attorneys can be held liable for violations caused by their court reporter, which is why it is so important that you choose a court reporting service that is experienced and trustworthy in this unique field.
