Data privacy and security are our top priorities.
We ensure full Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) compliance by validating the accuracy of cards prior to distribution to our customers. Our commitment to maintaining HIPAA compliance includes staying current with all policies, procedures, software, hardware and security within our facility, as outlined by HIPAA.
Our security process begins with extensive employee screenings, industry-leading firewalls and intrusion protection. In addition, we’ve made huge investments in automated production and data application systems to restrict physical access to cardholder data. These precautions, combined with multiple industry-leading quality control and screening systems, ensure each patient’s records and data are kept safe, secure and accurate.
From graphics and data receipt through card production, data application, mailing and distribution, the Valerian Technologies difference is evident. Unlike our third-party data facility counterparts, we have a fully integrated facility with all processes placed in one secure plant. This means one source for production. One set of controls. One set of spot-on quality.
The History of HIPAA
“HIPAA is an acronym for the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. Enacted in August of 1996 by Congress and President Bill Clinton, Title I of HIPAA protects health insurance coverage for workers and their families when they change or lose their jobs. Title II of HIPAA, known as the Administrative Simplification (AS) provisions, requires the establishment of national standards for electronic health care transactions and national identifiers for providers, health insurance plans and employers.”
