We are excited to announce Aeroflow Healthcare’s technology platform used to store, process, maintain, and transmit customer electronic protected health information (ePHI) has earned has earned HITRUST Risk-based, 2-year (r2) certification, demonstrating commitment to patient data security and privacy.
HITRUST Risk-based certification is a globally recognized two-year validated assessment that showcases an organization’s commitment to proactive and comprehensive approaches to data protection and information risk management. The certification evaluates an organization’s information security program against various risk factors and industry-defined regulatory standards for cybersecurity. Achieving the HITRUST compliance demonstrates a robust and proactive approach to information security risk management, provides a competitive advantage, and demonstrates compliance with various regulations and laws.
HITRUST has become the gold standard for ensuring the security and privacy of patient information in the healthcare industry. By undergoing the comprehensive and ongoing HITRUST certification process, healthcare organizations can provide assurance to their stakeholders that they are committed to safeguarding patient information. For patients, the HITRUST certification means that they can trust their healthcare providers to have implemented robust security standards to protect their sensitive information.
Patients are increasingly concerned about the security of their personal and medical information, particularly as healthcare providers continue to shift towards digital record-keeping and telemedicine. HITRUST certification provides assurance to patients that their sensitive information is being protected through rigorous security measures, reducing the risk of sensitive data breaches and identity theft.
With the peace of mind that comes from knowing their health information is secure, patients may be more likely to engage with their healthcare providers and share important information about their health, leading to better outcomes and improved patient satisfaction.
Covered entities have a legal and ethical obligation to protect the sensitive information of their members, and are also subject to strict regulatory requirements such as HIPAA compliance. By partnering with a HITRUST certified DME company, payers can demonstrate their commitment to meeting these obligations and maintaining the highest standards of information security.
HITRUST certification also helps to streamline the compliance process for payers, as they can be confident that their vendors are meeting the same rigorous security standards and risk management. This can save time and resources for payers and help to ensure a more consistent and effective approach to information security across their organization.
