HIPAA Compliance Critical to Protect Medical Translations

Two of the most critical parts of any translation project are accuracy and confidentiality. You want your content communicated the right way and you want it protected in the process. For medical translations, the confidentiality part takes on extra significance since it may contain sensitive patient records protected by federal law.
When selecting a Language Service Provider (LSP) to help with your Medical Form Imagemedical translations, it’s important they comply with HIPAA, the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. HIPAA outlines requirements not just for saving and sharing private health-related information, but also how that information is maintained and transmitted electronically. In today’s world of increasing cyber security threats and identity theft, it’s more important than ever to secure and protect medical information during the translation process.
