AQuity Solutions was founded on February 1, 2019, as a dedicated outsourced clinical documentation labor service. Initially created with the production workforce portion of the former M*Modal business when their technology assets were acquired by 3M, AQuity’s legacy traces back to 1984 with the formation of MedQuist as a consolidation of small regional transcription labor services in the Northeast.
In our more than 45 years of continuous operations serving the U.S. healthcare marketplace, our team has had a variety of owners, yet has evolved through a balance of strong organic growth as well as mergers and acquisitions to become the premier supplier of medical records business process outsourcing, as evidenced by our top rankings with both KLAS and Black Book.
Through the roll-up of legacy technology leaders such as Lanier, Digital Voice, Inc., and SpeechMachines, along with premier labor businesses such as CBay, Spheris, and scores of smaller, highly respected regional players, MedQuist, then M*Modal became a dominant force in the U.S. healthcare market.
As we forge our future path, we are committed to the business roots that have made us successful to date. Highly trained staff, supported by industry-leading technology, who are dedicated to delivering cost-effective services that support the clinical and financial outcomes of the healthcare provider organizations we serve. Technologies will come and go, processes and regulations will evolve, but in the end, service is delivered by people. With AQuity, you are supported by the same individuals and the same commitment you have come to know and trust. That is our history and that is our future.

ISO 27001 is an international standard outlining best practices for an information security management system (ISMS). ISMS is a set of policies and procedures to systematically manage sensitive data and applies the following principles to manage and protect business-critical information security:
- Confidentiality– Ensures information is accessible only to those authorized to have access.
- Integrity– Safeguards the accuracy and completeness of information and processing methods.
- Availability– Ensures authorized users can access data and associated assets when required.
SOC2 Type 2 engagements are performed in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants’ (AICPA) AT-C 205, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization and based on the trust service principles outlined in the AICPA Guide, Reporting on Controls at a Service Organization Relevant to Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy. The SOC 2 Type 2 report provides an understanding of the service organization’s suitability of the design of its internal controls. Successful completion of this voluntary engagement demonstrates AQuity’s ongoing commitment to create, maintain, and operate a secure environment for their clients’ confidential data.

Upon completion of the audit, they received a Service Auditor’s Report demonstrating that their policies, procedures, infrastructure, and operations meet or exceed the stringent SOC 2 Type 2 criteria.
