Today, we announced your data is officially safe with us.
We have undergone a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 SM examination, resulting in an official CPA’s report stating that we have maintained the effective controls over the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of our API platform. The engagement was performed by BARR Advisory, P.A., and we were assisted by Vanta throughout this process.
What is SOC 2?
A SOC 2 SM report is designed to meet the needs of existing or potential customers who need assurance about the effectiveness of controls used by the service organization to process customers’ information. This ensures that our API platform, which provides digital healthcare providers with access to more than 270 million patient electronic health records (EHRs), is operating with industry-leading data security standards.
"We’re proud to announce that our SOC 2 SM report has verified that we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to security, along with HIPAA Security Rule requirements. Companies that partner with us to access electronic health records (EHRs) using our universal API can rest assured that we’ve passed stringent data security standards to mitigate all operating risks.” -- Dan Horbatt, Co-Founder & CTO of Particle Health
The following principles and related criteria have been developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) for use by practitioners in the performance of trust services engagements:
