ROCHESTER, N.Y., July 12, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- eHealth Technologies, the leading provider of clinically informed referral solutions, is pleased to announce the recent completion of a Service Organization Control No. 2 (SOC 2) Type ll examination over their Healthcare Records Management System. A SOC 2 Type ll audit examines a service organization's system by using predefined trust services principles and criteria for security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, or privacy as a benchmark for evaluating the effectiveness of controls throughout a six to twelve-month period. The SOC 2 Type ll examination was performed by Macpage LLC, an independent certified public accounting firm that performs SOC exams nationwide.
According to Durward Ferland, who leads the Information Assurance Services practice at Macpage LLC, "The use of SOC 2 examination reports has greatly expanded and is often used by eHealth Technologies' user entities as part of their third party due diligence activities. The standards place an emphasis on eHealth Technologies' management description of internal controls. In addition, eHealth Technologies' business has continued to grow and the need for the SOC 2 standards has increased."
"eHealth Technologies' priority is to meet our customers' needs while ensuring that patient information is always secured. Our services provide clients with 'clinically informed referrals' so patients are relieved of the burden of accessing their own records at a very stressful point in their lives," said Ken Rosenfeld, CEO and President of eHealth Technologies. "Clinicians have come to depend on the intelligently organized, aggregated records we provide to help them quickly navigate through the available clinical information about their patient. We are pleased that our hard work, investments, training, and procedures we have put in place to protect this critical patient information has been recognized by receiving the SOC 2 Type II certification."
