Company among the only vendors in the post-acute care software market to meet this exacting standard.
AUSTIN, TEXAS – February 23, 2015 – Kinnser Software, Inc., a national software leader in clinical and business solutions for home health and hospice, today announced its successful completion of SSAE 16 (SOC1), an independently-audited mark of quality that is becoming increasingly important in service agreements with enterprise-class post-acute care businesses.
SSAE 16 is an auditing standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. To achieve it, an independent service auditor performs a detailed audit of the requesting company, examining its controls and processes involved in storing, handling, and transmitting data securely. Kinnser’s successful and voluntary completion of SSAE 16 demonstrates its ongoing commitment to create and maintain the most stringent controls for the protection and security of its customers’ confidential information.
“Customers can feel safe knowing that Kinnser has gone the extra mile to voluntarily verify that our business and security practices are first-rate,” said Chris Hester, president and founder, Kinnser Software. “Our customers face audits and surveys, and they have a right to expect their vendors to achieve exceptionally high standards, too.”
Few software vendors serving home health or hospice can claim SSAE 16 certification. The audit is challenging and stringent controls must be in place to pass. Adherence to security and transparency standards is critical in healthcare technology because the industry faces data breaches at an increasingly steady rate – 29.3 million patient records have been compromised since 2009 due to data breaches. All post-acute care providers should consider security and stability when evaluating software that will play an integral part of their operational processes.
SSAE 16 (SOC1) illustrates that Kinnser, as a software vendor, delivers quality service to its customers. Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) offerings are increasing in number and the importance of dependability – keeping services online, functional and secure – has never been greater.
