HITRUST CSF Certified status demonstrates that Sapphire Digital’s SmartShopper, CareSelect and MEG solutions have met key regulations and industry-defined requirements and are appropriately managing risk. This achievement places Sapphire Digital in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. 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.
“Sapphire Digital is dedicated to providing our customers with the highest degree of data privacy and security, especially during a time when security breaches are at an all-time high in the health care industry,” said Eric Gross, Executive Vice President & General Counsel, Sapphire Digital. “The HITRUST CSF Certification validates our company-wide commitment to protecting consumer health care data above all else.”
Sapphire Digital’s HITRUST assessor, the law firm of King & Spalding, analyzed and reviewed the company’s existing security and privacy measures and indicated Sapphire Digital is the firm’s only client to have ever achieved HITRUST CSF Certification without any Corrective Action Plans (CAPS), making it a rare industry accomplishment during a time when protecting health care data is of premium importance.
