ATLANTA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ingenious Med today announced that it has earned HITRUST CSF Certification status for information security by the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) for its market-leading Practice and Enterprise versions of its charge capture and care coordination solution*. This accreditation incorporates health care specific security, privacy and regulatory requirements in order to ensure industry best practices. Ingenious Med offers best-of-breed mobile and web solutions that simplify physician workflow at the point of care, thereby helping practices and health systems reduce variations in care while increasing revenue and eliminating costs.
The new certification further underscores Ingenious Med's commitment to keep data secure for its customers in the health-care sector by complying with the nation's most stringent standards. Nowhere is this more important than the control of protected health information (PHI) as required by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
“Ingenious Med is trusted by nine out of 10 of the nation’s top national health-care systems to provide physicians and their care teams with the ability to communicate across and between enterprises, as well as collaborate on and access information that drives critical medical decisions,” said Joe Marabito, CEO of Ingenious Med. “By achieving HITRUST CSF Certification, they can rest assured that we remain committed to meeting the industry’s highest standards for protecting their data. It represents yet another way we stand out in service to our customers.”
The HITRUST CSF is a security framework developed to help organizations better understand their information protection requirements and comply with government, federal and third-party compliance regulations and standards, including HIPAA, HITECH, PCI and NIST. By including multiple standards, best practice frameworks, federal and state regulations, 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. Only companies that have met all the HITRUST-defined certification requirements achieve the HITRUST stamp of approval. CSF Certified status indicates that Ingenious Med is appropriately managing risk, placing the company in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification.
“HITRUST has been working with the industry to ensure the appropriate information protection requirements are met when sensitive health information is accessed or stored in a cloud environment,” said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST. “By taking the steps necessary to obtain HITRUST CSF Certified status, Ingenious Med is distinguished as a health care enterprise that physicians, health care systems, and patients can count on to keep their information safe.”
