Kareo Achieves HITRUST CSF Certification

January 24th, 2017 by Kareo

Kareo has announced in a press release that the Kareo platform has earned Certified status for information security by the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance. With the HITRUST CSF Certified Status, Kareo’s platform meets key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private healthcare information.

HITRUST CSF Certified status indicates that Kareo’s platform has met industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk, and places Kareo in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.

“Healthcare providers are under pressure to meet many compliance requirements for information security and data protection, including HIPAA, NIST, ISO and COBIT,” said Dan Rodrigues, founder and CEO at Kareo. “The HITRUST CSF is the gold-standard, and we are very pleased to be able to show our commitment to supporting the success of independent practices by achieving HITRUST CSF Certification. Having certification that their providers have the necessary standards of information protection is particularly important to independent practices since they generally do not have in-house IT, security, and risk management capabilities.”

“HITRUST has been working with the industry to ensure the appropriate information protection requirements are met when sensitive health information is accessed or stored in a cloud environment. By taking the steps necessary to obtain HITRUST CSF Certified status, Kareo is distinguished as an organization that people can count on to keep their information safe,” said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST.

“Independent medical practices often don’t have the resources or the time to manage potential security risks,” said Rodrigues. “By going through this rigorous process for our entire platform, our customers can be confident that they are receiving the highest level of data security compliance when they use Kareo.”
