San Diego, November 15, 2017: MediKeeper, a technology company that designs customizable wellness portals, is proud to announce that the MediKeeper Wellness Portal has earned Certified status for information security by the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance.
HITRUST CSF Certified Status is the most widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry as it meets key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private healthcare information.
MediKeeper hired Coalfire, a third-party auditor to verify MediKeeper met all the industry-defined certification requirements. “Coalfire is honored to have worked closely with the MediKeeper team and HITRUST throughout the certification process,” said Andrew Hicks, Managing Principal of the Healthcare and Life Sciences practice at Coalfire. “The partnership provided a great opportunity for us to collaborate on the best path for securing data that meets the rigorous requirements of the HITRUST CSF,” added Hicks.
MediKeeper’s Wellness Portal has met industry-defined requirements, is appropriately managing risk, and places MediKeeper in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. It is unusual for mid-sized companies not only to seek, but obtain this certification due to the stringent controls needed to be passed.
“MediKeeper needed a way to consolidate multiple regulatory standards from HIPAA, PCI and NIST into one comprehensive framework,” said David Nguyen, CTO of MediKeeper. “HITRUST CSF Certified Status assures our clients that we are committed to the security, privacy and compliance controls that were developed and defined by leading healthcare and IT experts.”
