Having Azure and Docker in the certification makes Datica an easy choice for those who want to be compliant and move to the cloud
Madison, Wisc. (PRWEB) August 31, 2017
Datica, the industry cloud platform for digital health applications today announced the Datica Platform as a Service has earned Certified status by the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST). The company joins an elite group of healthcare vendors in the United States to achieve this status. With the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) Certification, Datica ensures its full platform meets the “gold standard” of industry expectations around security risk mitigation and protection of sensitive patient health information for the next two years.
This latest CSF Certification also includes both the Azure and Docker portions of Datica’s platform. “With this certification extended to additional parts of our platform, we now offer customers greater flexibility with cloud infrastructure choice; our AWS, Azure and IBM Softlayer customers want those options,” said Lori Meals, Datica director of compliance. “Having Azure and Docker in the certification makes Datica an easy choice for those who want to be compliant and move to the cloud.”
HITRUST CSF Certification remains an important designation to healthcare organizations. It combines different legislative initiatives that may be similar and yet somewhat contradictory with each other. “The CSF provides one set of prescriptive controls from which everyone can work,” said Travis Good, MD, CEO and Chief Privacy Officer. “If a legislative draft is issued, Datica and others in the industry that are HITRUST CSF Certified can review that draft for accuracy and completeness rather than needing to come up with our own opinion from scratch.”
As the information protection framework for the healthcare industry, the HITRUST CSF Certification brings a new level of effectiveness and efficiency to third-party assurance. “Datica has completed multiple security assessments and with its latest HITRUST CSF Certification, the company demonstrates its broadest security assurance yet, which offers customers affirmation that the company appropriately secures and protects healthcare information across its platform,” said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST.
