AdvantEdge Healthcare Solutions Inc, a top national medical billing company that both develops and uses medical billing technology, has met the rigorous data security standards necessary to achieve System and Organization Controls (SOC) 1 Type 2, SOC 2 Type 2 and HIPAA compliance.
The demanding examinations were administered via the third-party staff at 360 Advanced, a respected national Qualified Security Assessor, HITRUST CSF Assessor and Certified Public Accounting Firm based in St. Petersburg, FL.
The System and Organizational Controls standards, developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) provide service organizations a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls as they relate to one or more of the AICPA’s Trust Services Principles of Security, Availability, Processing Integrity, Confidentiality or Privacy.
HIPAA, the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act, is designed to provide privacy standards to protect patients’ medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals and other health care providers.
“For seven consecutive years, AdvantEdge has successfully completed SOC 1 and SOC 2 audits and HIPAA security assessments confirming our operational effectiveness, security and confidentiality. We are committed to a culture of compliance in all phases of company operations,” said Senior Vice President and Chief Compliance Officer Jeanne A. Gilreath.
