DeVero, Inc. Achieves HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) Certified Status and Continues to Provide Highly Secure Patient Records to Home Health and Hospice Agencies
San Jose, CA – October 10, 2013 – DeVero, Inc., a leading Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider of cloud-based electronic health record (EHR) solutions for the healthcare industry, is proud to announce that it has achieved Common Security Framework (CSF) Certified status from the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST). HITRUST was established under the premise that information security should be a core pillar of the broad adoption of health information systems and exchanges. The CSF combines requirements from existing federal, state, and third party standards such as HIPAA, HITECH, PCI, COBIT, NIST, and FTC.
DeVero obtained CSF Certified status by implementing a comprehensive and robust security-based infrastructure around its cloud-based application, facilities, administrative policies, and all aspects of its technical operations. This infrastructure was then tested and vetted by Coalfire Systems, an independent IT compliance auditor and HITRUST CSF Assessor. DeVero uses the CSF to perform self-audits and continuously monitor its own compliance with HIPAA and HITECH requirements.
The HITRUST certification puts DeVero at the forefront of highly secure and reliable EHR systems. DeVero’s efforts to implement security measures beyond even what HIPAA requires demonstrates their ongoing commitment to protect their customers’ patient data.
