December 11, 2002

Under the agreement, Plateau and QuickCompliance will combine customized HIPAA training content with an enterprise software platform that schedules, tracks, and delivers all Web-based and classroom HIPAA training.

After April 14, 2003, organizations and employees that fail to comply with these guidelines will face substantial fines.

Plateau and QuickCompliance currently are working with Booz Allen Hamilton to deliver HIPAA training to 130,000 healthcare providers across the entire Military Health System, a health care program for active duty and retired members of the uniformed services, their families, and survivors.
