Verato earns Hitrust CSF information security certification
Cloud-based identity resolution service provider Verato has earned information security validation from Hitrust for its Verato Universal MPI and Verato Auto-St technologies, the company announced.
Hitrust (Health Information Trust Alliance) partnered with healthcare, technology and information security industries to establish a framework for companies that operate with sensitive or regulated data. The Hitrust CSF (Common Security Framework) is a set of guidelines that helps companies be compliant with healthcare standards such as HIPAA.
Obtaining a Hitrust CSF certification confirms Verato’s SaaS solution and infrastructure are aligned with industry regulations and requirements for risk management and data protection, as well as with federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, the company explains.
Verato provides accurate patient matching so healthcare organizations can get a unified view over their clients. Verato CEO Mark LaRow recently argued that biometrics and referential matching could solve patient ID problems.
“Verato is committed to the highest levels of security compliance and we are proud to be certified by HITRUST,” said Mark LaRow, CEO of Verato. “This third-party assessment verifies that Verato meets all of the industry defined certification requirements for the Hitrust Common Security Framework (CSF). The Hitrust CSF is the benchmark in compliance and we are pleased to offer this proven protection to our customers.”
Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer at Hitrust further adds “The Hitrust CSF has become the information protection framework for the health care industry, and the CSF Assurance program is bringing a new level of effectiveness and efficiency to third-party assurance. The Hitrust CSF Certification is now the benchmark that organizations required to safeguard PHI are measured against with regards to information protection.”
Focused on healthcare organizations, Verato announced in June it was partnering up with advance care planning company ADVault as part of its Powered by Verato (PBV) program. Previously, Verato integrated biometrics from Imprivata PatientSecure, to perform highly accurate, secure, cost-effective and easy to implement patient matching as a utility.
