Muncie, IN (PRWEB) March 14, 2013
Ontario Systems, a leading receivables management technology and services provider, announced its Artiva Healthcare 6.0 collections solution has been officially certified today for compliance with the Payment Application Data Security Standard (PA-DSS) version 2. Validating that the solution’s Link and Signature IVR applications meet all the requirements of the PCI Data Security Standard, the certification fulfills payment software compliance requirements for hundreds of healthcare collections operations across the country when those applications are implemented for payment processing with Artiva Healthcare. Visit the Ontario Systems Blog for more information about the importance of PCI certification.
“Many of our clients require validated payment applications to more easily meet compliance requirements under the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS),” says Deborah Lelinski, Ontario Systems Director of Product Management – Healthcare. “Compliance in all its forms is one of the most pressing challenges facing Healthcare leaders. This certification illustrates Ontario Systems’s continuing commitment to helping our customers navigate an ever-complex regulatory environment.”
The Artiva Healthcare application, and the fully-fused Signature IVR and LINK family of credit card processors have all achieved certification. That means transactions with the system originating in a secure IVR interaction or with a personal contact with an account rep have been certified end to end.
The PCI DSS standard covers a list of controls that must be implemented, and the organization must prove successful to a Qualified Security Auditor (QSA) to reach certification. Those interested can verify Ontario Systems’s achievement by contacting the company’s QSA, Coalfire, or by visiting the PCI Security Council list of Validated Payment Applications website.
“Using our certified products can help healthcare administrators avoid many costs and risks associated with independently-developed compliance solutions,” says Rick Clark, Ontario Systems Corporate Security Manager. “We look forward to working with all of our customers to achieve those goals, and optimize their payment platforms for years to come.”
