FIGmd Inc. Achieves EHNAC Cloud-Enabled Accreditation
CEAP accreditation offers a higher level of stakeholder confidence for organizations under competitive pressures to demonstrate the rigor and structure of cloud-enabled platforms and applications
Chicago, IL – October 16, 2017 – FIGmd Inc. the technology company that designs, operates and maintains the largest and most effective clinical data registries in the country, announced today it has achieved full accreditation with the Cloud-Enabled Accreditation Program (CEAP) from the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC). Developed by industry-peers, CEAP is offered exclusively for the users of FedRAMP-certified Cloud Service Providers (CPSs) – regardless of the healthcare data exchange model the CSP supports. This program is available to organizations who are already accredited or have become candidates of at least one other EHNAC-accreditation program (the primary program).
Through the consultative review process, EHNAC evaluated FIGmd’s use of cloud services in areas of privacy, security, mandated standards and key operational functions. EHNAC assessed the organization’s health information and oversight for meeting privacy and security, HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus Rule and ACA requirements, as well as technical performance, business processes and resource management. The comprehensive CEAP program requires 74 unique criteria to be met by applying organizations, as well as additional coordination with the organization’s CSP.
“With cyberattacks on the rise over the past five years, healthcare industry cloud-based information technology presents a critically unique set of privacy and security challenges when it comes to healthcare data exchange,” said Lee Barrett, executive director of EHNAC. “Organizations such as FIGmd Inc. have stepped up to lead the movement toward ensuring superior capabilities in the areas of privacy, security and standards by seeking to further demonstrate their commitment to these crucial security measures.”
CEAP accreditation offers a higher level of stakeholder confidence for organizations under competitive pressures to demonstrate the rigor and structure of cloud-enabled platforms and applications.
“Our EHNAC CEAP accreditation proves our commitment and ability to adhere to the highest industry standards, ensure healthcare reform compliance and maintain our leading position in the industry. Most importantly, it lets our current and future customers know they can always trust our ability to manage their data effectively and with integrity,” said FIGmd President and CEO Sanket Baralay.
