NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Eligible, the country’s leading billing infrastructure company for healthcare, announced today the receipt of two accreditations that certify the company’s ability to securely and effectively operate while meeting or exceeding the industry’s highest quality standards. As Eligible’s API platform single-handedly processes over 14 million healthcare cases per month, and billions of dollars annually, these certifications are an exceptional way to affirm that providers and patients enjoy the most comprehensive data security available.
Eligible received SOC2 certification, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), this past October. This certification measures the operating effectiveness of Eligible’s controls as they relate to Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality, or Privacy. The measurements ensure that service organizations provide a mature, robust, and secure product and actively maintain an organization that supports these goals.
In December, Eligible’s selected systems earned certified status for information security by the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST). With the HITRUST CSF Certified Status, these systems meet the key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private healthcare information. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
“This past year Eligible was hyper-focused on earning the industry’s most widely regarded certifications and accreditations,” said Katelyn Gleason, Eligible Founder and CEO. “Healthcare providers are under immense pressure to meet incredibly complex compliance requirements and these accreditations are the most effective way of communicating to customers that their data is safe. We’re thrilled to be able to offer our clients that assurance.”
Eligible is the country’s leading billing infrastructure company in healthcare, making it easier and cheaper for providers such as physicians and hospitals to get reimbursed by insurance companies and paid by patients. As the creator of the first publicly-accessible healthcare API, Eligible connects healthcare providers to over 1,000 insurance companies, covering more than 90% of the insured population. Eligible’s API automates eligibility verifications and claims submissions for providers while dramatically reducing the administrative burden required to receive reimbursement. This service adds millions of dollars to clients’ bottom lines annually and frees providers up to do what they do best—administer the best care to patients in need. Eligible is a New York-based company backed by more than $25 million in funding from Silicon Valley’s leading investors. For more information, visit https://eligible.com/.
