WILMINGTON, N.C., May 10, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Alera Health has successfully completed a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 1 Audit, performed by Sensiba San Filippo, LLP (SSF). “We are thrilled,” says Jose Castillo, Senior Vice President of Health Informatics at Alera Health; “SOC 2 Type 1 and 2 reflect our commitment to the highest standards of information security and privacy as we support population health analytics for our ONEcare Networks across the nation.”
Developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the SOC 2 information security standard is an audit report on the examination of controls relevant to the trust services criteria categories covering security, availability, confidentiality, processing integrity, and privacy. A SOC 2 Type I report describes a service organization’s systems and whether the controls they have in place to satisfy the SOC criteria were suitably designed at a point-in-time. Alera’s SOC 2 Type 1 report had Security, Availability, Confidentiality, Processing Integrity, and Privacy in scope, and did not have any noted exceptions and therefore was issued with a “clean” audit opinion from SSF. Alera worked in tandem with the Drata platform to successfully prepare for the audit.
In today’s digital age, healthcare institutions have become increasingly reliant on technology to store and manage sensitive patient information. With electronic medical records and various healthcare software systems, healthcare providers need to ensure that the data is secure and compliant. The rigorous SOC 2 Type 1 audit serves as validation that Alera Health is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards for the protection of sensitive patient information.
