Clinical Spend Management Innovator Completes SOC 2 Type 2 Audit
November 30, 2022. Evansville, IN – Clinical spend management company Curvo has completed the rigorous, on-site audit that validates compliance with SOC 2 Type 2 requirements. The System and Organization Controls (SOC) framework provides an independent assessment of Curvo safeguards around data security, availability, confidentiality, processing integrity and privacy.
SOC 2 Type 2 is the strictest of several levels of SOC certification, requiring a much longer auditing period. A SOC 2 Type 2 report involves many months of intense, third-party auditing that results in a thorough, independent examination of internal controls and operating effectiveness.
Why SOC 2 Type 2 Matters to Healthcare Enterprises
The successful SOC 2 Type 2 assessment validates that an organization like Curvo implements and maintains security controls to protect sensitive data. SOC 2 standards bring peace of mind to hospitals that engage outside partners to work with their clinical data and supply chain sourcing.
“SOC 2 Type II requires significant commitments of time and resources, and we willingly invested in both because this report aligns with our own focus on trust,” said Curvo CEO and Co-Founder Andy Perry.
“Security safeguards are a cornerstone of trust for our healthcare customers,” added Curvo CCO and Co-Founder Steve Suhrheinrich. “The lengthy, independent audit validates that Curvo operations can be trusted at every step.”
SOC 2 Compliance Reduces Hospital Risk
SOC 2 Type 2 compliance ensures healthcare enterprises that their sensitive information is handled responsibly. By working with partners holding SOC 2 Type II validation, hospitals lower the risk of breaches, litigation and regulatory scrutiny.
“Many healthcare organizations require third-party assurance like SOC 2 Type 2 from their partners to ensure information is handled responsibly, '' said Andy Perry. “The SOC 2 framework provides standards to measure how well our organization does that.”
