A rigorous security audit affirms that Bridge’s security policies comply with exacting standards for data handling and software development.
DALLAS, TX, August 31, 2021 /24-7PressRelease/ — Leading patient engagement solution Bridge is announcing that they have attained Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 certification. By completing SOC 2 certification, Bridge has demonstrated that their security procedures, policies, and practices comply with stringent standards for the management and storage of customer data set forth by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA).
In order to become SOC 2 certified, Bridge demonstrated alignment with the AICPA’s five trust service principles: security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy. In heavily-regulated industries such as healthcare IT, SOC 2 certification is a critical achievement that helps reassure customers of an organization’s commitment to data security.
A SOC 2 audit is conducted by independent auditors, who assess the organization’s privacy and security policies and controls, as well as the confidentiality, availability, and processing integrity of data it stores.
“The healthcare industry has found itself in a difficult situation where rapidly growing consumer demand for online patient-facing technologies has met ever-increasing cybersecurity risks, predominantly ransomware attacks,” said John Deutsch, CEO of Bridge. “Our recent completion of our SOC 2 certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to protecting our client’s data.”
Bridge offers a suite of patient engagement solutions which are sold as individual modules. These include Bridge Portal, Bridge Scheduling, Bridge Pay, Bridge Mobile, Bridge Intake, Bridge Virtual Visit, Bridge Communication and Bridge Interface. All of these modules are hosted in Bridge’s secure, Google-Cloud-based cloud hosting environment.
