After 18 months of self-assessments, audits and planning, HITRUST awarded Practice Velocity (PV) the gold standard of CSF Certification.
Machesney Park, Ill. (May 23, 2018) ” On May 8, 2018 PV obtained the HITRUST CSF Certification, which places PV in a category of leaders and sets them apart from the competition. This certification demonstrates that PV continues to place top priority on the protection and security of patient data.
“Achieving HITRUST CSF Certification is a great example of our commitment to meeting the healthcare industry’s highest standards for protecting healthcare customer data and managing risk,” says Rick Cochran, Chief Information Officer and Chief Information Security Officer at PV.
The Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) established the Common Security Framework (CSF), which incorporates HIPAA, HITECH, PCI and COBIT requirements. These requirements can be integrated with other regulations and security standards, such as NIST, to protect sensitive data. CSF was developed by the industry’s leading security and technology experts and features a third-party certification process to ensure an organization has implemented the framework to its high standards.
“Risk to data, in any industry, is a real fear, but since we are in the healthcare field and handle sensitive patient data we need to be extra careful,” says Dr. David Stern, CEO Practice Velocity. “I am very proud of the team’s tenacity to work hard and follow through to obtain this certification”.
