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
ARLINGTON, Va., Sept. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Cyfluent, Inc., a Microsoft-based, software development firm with one of the most innovative electronic health record (EHR) solutions to date, 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 a comprehensive third-party review, EHNAC evaluated Cyfluent’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 78 unique criteria to be met by applying organizations, as well as additional coordination with the organization’s CSP. 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.
“Today’s cybercriminal has evolved into a dangerous entity, as a result, 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 Cyfluent 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 resulting in a higher level of stakeholder confidence. For this, we commend Cyfluent.”
Cyfluent CEO, Terry Lin, notes, “This recognition is a major stepping stone for our company. It highlights our commitment to excellence and reinforces the fact that we are well on our way to realizing our goal of being a global provider of Electronic Health Record (EHR) software as a service (SaaS) for medical communities and patients worldwide.”
