PaperErasers, Inc. is known for its quality online document management and scanning services for businesses. Due to the struggles that HR professionals are facing today with HIPAA and employment law, PaperErasers has recently created an HR module to address the challenging situation.
The pressure for HR departments to keep their record keeping processes in compliance has been increasing over the years and more and more violations of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) have been noted. Because of this, more HR professionals are utilizing paperless solutions for document management and PaperErasers, Inc. is leading the way with its services.
Violations of the HIPAA law can be quite costly. For example, due to an employee leaving sensitive information on the public transit system in 2011, the General Hospital Corporation and Massachusetts General Physicians Organization Inc. had to compensate the U.S. government $1,000,000 to settle violations of the HIPAA Privacy Rule.
Privacy can be lost easily in the everyday work scene due to forgetting to lock a file cabinet, leaving file room doors open, having unsecured copy machines, and piles of paper trails on employees’ desks. Unsecured private papers are significant risks to violating the HIPAA law, which is why more HR departments are beginning to use electronic document solutions.
Don Hunter, Vice President of Operations with PaperErasers, Inc. states, “By securely storing files in a central, electronic repository, HR departments can more easily control and track access to sensitive data.” Restrictions can be placed on information as well, such as who can access, information type, and/or task. PaperErasers, Inc. offers an effective HR module that can help HR managers comply with HIPAA laws, saving time, money, and space. For more information, please visit http://www.PaperErasers.com.
