Vibrant LHS’ security and compliance framework now covers HIPAA, FISMA Low and Moderate, FIPS 200, SP800-53 revision 4, SP800-37, NIST technical security controls, ISO 13485, ISO 9001, ISO 14971, ISO 62366, FDA HE 75, FIPS 140-2, and SAS-70 type II.
“This ATO certification marks a significant milestone for Vibrent in its journey to power the next generation of personalized medicine,” Vibrent Health CEO and Founder Praduman Jain said in a statement.
“Our technology infrastructure is fully vetted and available to organizations that require the highest levels of mission-critical security including Department of Defense (DoD), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), National Cancer Institute (NCI), as well as commercial customers,” Jain continued. “This ATO will continue to fuel our company’s growth and rapid expansion.”
Vibrent worked with the third-party assessment organization Coalfire to ensure that the platform meets all of the strict healthcare security requirements. Coalfire’s assessment confirmed that Vibrent LHS has the management, operational, and technical security controls to provide a secure enough environment for clinical data.
“Vibrent wanted a knowledgeable partner that would make this process efficient, cost-effective, timely and improve their security posture beyond just their compliance requirements,” Coalfire Founder and Chief Strategist Kennet Westby said in a statement.
“Our successful partnership with Vibrent Health underscores our proven ability to help customers effectively manage risk and maintain compliance with some of the industry’s most complex security standards,” Westby added. “We were pleased to help Vibrent meet all of their goals and support this very important strategic project for the company.”
The SaaS precision medicine platform combines clinical data from multiple sources to provide clinicians with evidence-based insights into patient health. The platform takes data from genomics, the environment, bio-markers, lifestyle, behavior, wearables, EHRs, medical devices and patient-reported outcomes to support more informed and in-depth background into a patient’s individual needs.
Precision medicine uses different data sources to help patients live healthier lives by getting diagnoses and treatments specific to their individual needs.
Healthcare organizations need precision medicine platforms to handle all the information necessary to make more personalized decisions based on an individual patient’s unique needs.
