Mount Pleasant, MI (PRWEB) June 23, 2014
Homecare agencies are increasingly concerned on how their data is handled as they move their operations to the cloud. The privacy, security, and integrity of patient data is a major concern as it likely contains Protected Health Information (PHI) and is covered under HIPAA privacy and security regulations.
IDS enlisted the services of industry expert TRUSTe to perform a comprehensive review of sites, apps, policies and practices. After the review was completed IDS was certified in Privacy, Cloud (TRUSTed Cloud), and EU Safe Harbor Framework.
"It was important for us to assure our current and potential customers that we are committed to maintaining the highest levels of privacy and security for homecare agencies using Generations Homecare System," says Lance Ferden, President of IDS. "The only way to provide that high level of assurance was to have an independent review performed by an industry expert."
Vice President, Lisa Ferden reiterates by stating "Certification from TRUSTe affirms our promise to safeguard data. We will continue to be vigilant in the protection of PHI."
Generations Homecare System is an industry leading cloud based software application used by homecare agencies to manage all aspects of their business.
