In the world of healthcare, information security is vital. Companies dealing with a patient’s personal health information must meet key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing all materials and data to avoid an information security breach. Achieving security certification by trusted third-party organizations can assure partners and patients that their information is maintained with the highest level of security.
Solera Health is honored to announce to that we’ve earned a certified status from the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) high-level security framework. The HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) certification provides assurance to Solera’s health plan, employer and health system clients that Solera meets the healthcare industry’s highest standards in protecting healthcare information and managing risk. This is a significant milestone and certification for us, as no other Diabetes Prevention Program (DPP) digital therapeutics platform is HITRUST certified.
The HITRUST CSF was developed to address the multitude of security, privacy and regulatory challenges facing healthcare organizations. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, certified organizations meet a diverse set of requirements through comprehensive and scalable security controls.
As a market category creator and integrator of non-clinical services, Solera performs all due diligence to downstream DPP providers. DPPs in our network are able to offer clients a much greater sense of data privacy/security when utilizing nonclinical community and digital providers. Now, we can continue to validate our commitment to the highest standards for privacy, security and compliance.
Taking Security One Step Further
Through our integration with DPPs, Solera also helps to educate customers and business partners. As a company, we promote data privacy and security in a cloud-based environment and work exclusively within the healthcare cloud space.
By creating a culture of compliance and completing the steps necessary to obtain the HITRUST CSF Certified status, Solera is distinguished as a company that our payer and Diabetes Prevention Program provider partners, and their participants, can trust to secure protected health information.
With the HITRUST Certification, Solera Health can continue to scale – securely.
The HITRUST CSF Certification indicates that Solera meets key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing personal health information, including HIPAA, HITECH, PCI, ISO 27001 and NIST.
