The healthcare industry is largely powered by data and must adhere to high compliance standards on how that data is managed and stored. The HITRUST CSF® certification has become widely adopted as the gold standard for reviewing and certifying any organization taking the necessary steps to ensure data it manages is secure. More specifically, when this prestigious accreditation is granted, it demonstrates that key regulations from federal and state agencies, as well as industry-defined requirements have been met, and risk is being managed appropriately.
TransUnion Healthcare’s eScan insurance discovery solution, including its client-facing ePortal and back-office systems, recently earned this important certification. It leverages patented data matching technology to help our client hospitals discover insurance coverage for patients not previously found through traditional methods.
TransUnion Healthcare’s commitment to information security
HITRUST CSF certification further demonstrates TransUnion Healthcare’s commitment to information security and regulatory compliance.
Some of the many ways we ensure our data and systems are secure include:
- Employing independent, third-party experts to assess our security environment and evaluate controls
- Benchmarking our security program using the most up-to-date monitoring systems
- Developing new anomaly detection procedures to strengthen our internal controls system
Other areas of focus on our data protection and information security methods can be found in the 2016 Corporate Social Responsibility report.
As an organization, TransUnion has over 50 Petabytes of data from more than 90,000 data sources. This data supports everything from medical payment processes and credit scores to identity verification and protection, and more.
HITRUST CSF certification further positions TransUnion Healthcare and its insurance discovery products as best-in-class, industry leaders.
