"Vivify Health underwent a thorough assessment to ensure it complied with Infoway's new enhanced privacy, security and management control certification requirements," said Ron Parker, Group Director, Interoperability, Standards and Certification Services, Canada Health Infoway. "We applaud Vivify Health for not only meeting these rigorous requirements, but also for being the first to achieve Infoway Certification under our 2017 Edition."
Infoway Certification provides assurance that digital health software complies with specified requirements and standards, which helps ensure the protection of personal health information. The 2017 Edition requirements build upon Infoway's original certification requirements and are harmonized to increase alignment between Infoway, provincial requirements and international standards, and to reduce testing redundancies.
Vivify Health has been selected as the technology platform for Telehomecare by Ontario Telemedicine Network (OTN), connecting patients at home to their care team for remote patient monitoring of chronic disease and other conditions. In addition, Vivify is a Vendor of Record for OTN's pre- and post-surgical patient engagement, to educate and manage patients before and after surgical procedures.
"Vivify Health is thrilled to accomplish this certification from Canada Health Infoway, validating Vivify's commitment to security and privacy," said Michael Hawkins, Chief Technology Officer of Vivify Health. "Infoway and Ontario Telemedicine Network have been incredible partners in this independent confirmation of the security of Vivify's digital health platform, which will deliver connected care services to thousands of patients across Ontario."
