EATONTOWN, N.J., March 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Caregility, a company dedicated to delivering care to wherever the patient is located through the use of the Caregility Virtual Care Platform, announces the company has earned two privacy and security certifications. The ISO 27001 certification validates that Caregility meets requirements for establishing, implementing, maintaining, and continually improving its information security management system (ISMS). The ISO 27701 certification, a new globally recognized privacy standard and extension to ISO 27001, demonstrates that Caregility has an effective privacy information management system (PIMS) in place to protect customer and stakeholder data. ISO 27701 also verifies that Caregility complies with GDPR and other applicable personally identifiable information (PII) regulations.
As more hospitals embrace video streaming services such as inpatient telehealth and continuous patient observation, these certifications ensure decreased risk related to privacy and information breaches for Caregility Virtual Care Platform customers. To date, Caregility is one of the few health IT companies to achieve ISO 27701 certification, which was introduced in August of 2019. To earn the certifications, Caregility worked with qualified certification body Schellman and Company, LLC, which conducted a thorough and intensive internal audit of Caregility’s ISMS and PIMS systems. The results of Caregility’s audit revealed zero evidence of nonconformity. Caregility’s status will be maintained through annual surveillance audits and full reassessment every three years.
“As a cloud service provider in the healthcare industry, ISO 27001 and ISO 27701 are very important for Caregility and its customers,” said Bin Guan, Caregility Chief Product and Innovation Officer. “The former enhances the latter with additional components to improve privacy data management as a part of the overall ISMS. Because of the nature of our business, we felt it was important to add the certifications to the compliance portfolio of both our current and legacy platform solutions.”
