Mequon, WI – January 9, 2018 – SKYGEN USA, an organization dedicated to transforming the healthcare industry through innovative, technology-enabled solutions and data analytics that power the business of healthcare throughout the digital age, today announced its company Scion Dental has earned Certified status for information security by the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance.
With the HITRUST CSF Certified Status, Scion Dental’s Enterprise System technology platform, as well as its business processes regarding the intake and management of: electronic data, paper-based information, electronic data interchange (EDI) transactions, and customer service calls – all meet key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive private healthcare information. In completing this process, Scion Dental joins SKYGEN USA company Wonderbox Technologies, which announced it had achieved HITRUST CSF Certified Status in August 2017.
HITRUST CSF Certified status indicates that SKYGEN USA company Scion Dental’s technology and business processes have met industry-defined requirements and is appropriately managing risk, and places the company 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 CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
“SKYGEN USA is deeply committed to delivering the highest level of protection for the health and personally-identifiable information entrusted to us by our clients, who represent many of our nation’s leading health payers,” said Craig Kasten, chairman and co-founder of SKYGEN USA. “Earning HITRUST CSF certification is a long and arduous process, and I am grateful to everyone within our organization who worked so diligently to make it happen, and to those who will ensure we continue to meet the latest standards year after year.”
In addition to the core benefits received, achieving HITRUST CSF certification also helps SKYGEN USA company Scion Dental continue down the path toward becoming a CyberBen organization. A CyberBen organization is one that uses technology to create unprecedented levels of program efficiencies and an information-rich environment to yield the highest outcomes for payers, providers, and members. The certification meets two of the five objectives of CyberBen, i.e., “Safeguarding Patients” and “Complying with MITA Initiative.”
“The HITRUST CSF has become the information protection framework for the health care industry, and the CSF Assurance program is bringing a new level of effectiveness and efficiency to third-party assurance,” said Ken Vander Wal, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST. “The CSF Certification is now the benchmark that organizations required to safeguard PHI are measured against with regards to information protection.”
