GREENWICH, Conn., July 11, 2019
AdminaHealth®, a leading provider of technology solutions for the benefit and insurance marketplace, today announced the AdminaHealth Platform has joined an elite group of organizations worldwide in earning HITRUST CSF Certification, falling on the heels of the completion of the validated NIST CSF assessment in February of this year. AdminaHealth offers a cloud-based Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that equips brokers, TPAs, captive managers, and the employers and associations they serve with tools to gain efficiencies that reduce costs.
As a business associate under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), data protection and privacy are of utmost importance to AdminaHealth. AdminaHealth puts clients and partners first, striving to be at the forefront in mitigating cybersecurity risk. AdminaHealth operates on the SaaS DreamtSoft platform managed by prominent industry experts Jerrod Bennett, CEO, and Bow Ruggeri, CTO. The platform features a cutting-edge security by design methodology while staying true to the founders’ vision of software “without boundaries” – leading the industry in scalability, flexibility, and efficiency.
With costly increases in cyber fraud and data breaches within the industry, AdminaHealth made a strategic business decision early on to implement a scalable security model utilizing the HITRUST CSF and the National Institute of Standards and Technology Cyber Security Framework (NIST CSF).
“AdminaHealth is committed to ensuring the highest level of data privacy and protection for our clients and partners,” said Robert Bull, CEO of AdminaHealth. “As the gold-standard in safeguarding PHI data, HITRUST provides the necessary controls to ensure we deliver a secure platform that our clients can feel confident in using.”
HITRUST CSF Certified status demonstrates that the AdminaHealth Platform has met key regulatory and industry-defined security requirements and is appropriately managing risk. 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.
“HITRUST has been working with the industry to ensure the appropriate information protection requirements are met when sensitive information is accessed or stored in a cloud environment. By taking the steps necessary to obtain HITRUST CSF Certified status, AdminaHealth has not only distinguished itself as an organization but also has demonstrated its commitment to ensure the protection of its clients’ data,” said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer at HITRUST.
A third party assessor firm, Smith & Howard, was retained to ensure an independent assessment of the AdminaHealth environment. Their team, led by industry leading expert, Martha Raber, provided objective feedback and guidance in current and future initiatives to ensure AdminaHealth remains at the forefront of security and data protection.
