Leader in patient identity modernization demonstrates highest level of sensitive data security with in-depth certification process
NextGate, the global leader in identity modernization and data transformation in healthcare, announced today it has achieved ISO/IEC 27001:2013 (ISO 27001) certification, recognizing its commitment to the security, confidentiality, integrity, and availability of sensitive health-related patient and customer information.
Following an extensive audit process by Schellman & Company LLC., the ISO 27001 certification confirms that NetxGate’s private SaaS platform meets the highest international standards for establishing, implementing, maintaining and continually improving its information security posture.
Leading healthcare enterprises around the globe rely on NextGate to overcome the clinical, operational and financial challenges that result from insufficient and inaccessible data. The company’s suite of HITRUST-certified, next generation identity solutions connects the entire ecosystem of meaningful health information to provide a trusted, fully-integrated view of clinical, community and lifestyle data for whole-person care.
“At a time when data privacy and security remain top of mind for consumers and their care providers, protecting the sensitivity, vulnerability and integrity of their health information remains our number one priority,” said NextGate CEO Andy Aroditis. “This certification affirms that NextGate’s pioneering cloud solutions not only adhere to, but surpass, industry-leading security standards and best practices to protect our customers’ confidential and delicate data environment.”
To achieve the ISO 27001 certification, organizations must demonstrate a systematic and documented approach to protecting and managing sensitive company and customer information including intellectual property, employee and customer data, financial information and information entrusted to it by third parties.
The ISO 27001 certification follows NextGate’s recent announcement that it attained HITRUST CSF® Certification for protecting and securing sensitive health information by meeting industry regulations and compliance requirements to support the demands of an increasingly interconnected, information-rich environment.
