In 1996, we had major changes that helped the efficiency and effectiveness of our medical community and our American health care system with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). A-1 Courier has been there the entire time. Our decades-long experience delivering medical specimens has taught us many lessons about how to provide 100% successful messenger services, picking up and delivering medical specimens. Each courier has been trained on how to handle medical specimens such as blood, urine, and other temperature-controlled medical specimens.

A-1 Courier uses medical specimen chain of custody record keeping that's always available.

When picking up any medical specimen or pharmaceutical drug we use our Chain of Custody software that’s been designed by Medical Professionals along with our couriers in the field. If there are ever any questions about who picked up, who signed, how many were picked up etc., we offer electronic access so these and other questions can be answered immediately, 24 hours per day.

The HIPAA act has allowed us to shine as an example of excellent courier service for our Los Angeles clients. We provide route courier services for many high profile medical labs, government agencies, school universities, such as UCLA and USC. (We root for all local teams!) And we also provide medical couriers for private medical groups in L.A..

At the same time, Congress recognized that advances in electronic technology could negatively impact the privacy of health information. Congress would then incorporate into HIPAA provisions the adoption of Federal privacy protections for individuals.

HHS published a final  Security Rule in February 2003. This Rule sets country-wide standards for protecting the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronically transacted health information. Compliance with the Security Rule was required as of April 20, 2005
