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
Washington, D.C., – January 12, 2016 – MedicaSoft, a next generation healthcare IT company, 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 MedicaSoft’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.
“MedicaSoft is proud to be CEAP accredited with EHNAC. Our team is committed to delivering the highest quality software and cloud services to our commercial and government clients. Increasingly, that involves cloud computing. This accreditation demonstrates our commitment to the security and privacy of our client’s data.”– Michael O’Neill, MedicaSoft CEO.
“Information technology in the cloud – especially in the healthcare industry which involves valuable protected health information (PHI) – 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 MedicaSoft are leading the movement toward ensuring superior capabilities in the areas of privacy, security and standards by seeking to further demonstrate their commitment to these security measures above and beyond.”
MedicaSoft improves the quality of healthcare outcomes and the efficiency of care delivery worldwide by delivering cloud-ready advanced health information technology solutions, including Electronic Health Record (EHR) and Personal Health Record (PHR) software as well as HISP secure messaging services.
