NEW YORK, (November 7, 2023) – Vim, the leading point-of-care connection platform in U.S. healthcare has earned certified status for information security by HITRUST for the second time, further validating its commitment to the highest compliance and information security standards.
HITRUST Risk-based, 2-year (r2) Certified status demonstrates that the organization’s point-of-care connection platform and its underlying EHR connectivity technology have met demanding regulatory compliance and industry-defined requirements and the company is appropriately managing risk.
This achievement places Vim in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards, and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST Assurance Program helps organizations address security and data protection challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
“HITRUST Certification is the most prestigious certifiable security framework for the healthcare industry and the standard of trust among Fortune 500 companies,” said Oron Afek, CEO of Vim. “Achieving this re-certification is just another assurance for our customers and partners that our systems are as secure as possible according to these rigorous and widely-regarded standards.”
Vim operates under strict security practices designed to protect customers, partners, and staff during an unprecedented time of cyber-attacks. HITRUST standards are uncompromising, consisting of a multitude of quality assurance checks, both automated and manual.
“This achievement is a culmination of continuously nurturing Vim’s culture of security and direct effort across our entire organization to uphold, asses, and enhance our internal security programs,” said Nandy Vaisman, VP of Operations and CISO at Vim. “We are pleased to demonstrate to our customers the highest standards for data protection and information security in an industry that handles significant volumes of PII, ePHI, and other sensitive data.”
“The HITRUST Assurance Program is rigorous and reliable because of the comprehensiveness of control requirements, depth of review, and consistency of oversight,” said Bimal Sheth, Executive Vice President, Standards Development & Assurance Operations, HITRUST. “HITRUST Risk-based, 2-year (r2) Certification demonstrates Vim is taking the most proactive approach to cybersecurity, data protection, and risk management.”
