Prime Health Services Completes Rigorous SOC 2® Certification Solidifying Commitment to Data Security

NASHVILLE, TN (Wednesday, October 26, 2016) - Prime Health Services, a national medical cost containment company, announces receipt of its Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Type 1 attestation engagement report, affirming that Prime Health’s information security practices, policies, procedures, and operations meet the SOC 2® standards for security, availability, and confidentiality.

This is independent validation that the company's internal security controls are in accordance with the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA)'s applicable Trust Services Principles and Criteria.  The audit includes an assessment of:

  • Security: Data centers are protected against unauthorized access, both physical and logical.
  • Availability: Data centers are available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
  • Confidentiality: Information designated as confidential is protected as committed or agreed. 

The SOC 2® audit examination is the most widely recognized authoritative guidance for providing service organizations with a uniform method for disclosing independently assessed information about the design and operation of internal controls related to their services. Prime Health Services joins an elite group of companies that demonstrate a substantially higher level of assurance and operational visibility to their clients.

Prime Health Services' SOC 2® report verifies the existence of internal controls (criteria) which have been designed and implemented to meet the requirements for the security principles set forth in the Trust Services Principles and Criteria for Security. It provides a thorough review of how Prime Health Services' internal controls affect the security, availability, and processing integrity of the solutions it offers to process client's data, and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems. This independent validation of security controls is crucial for customers in highly regulated industries.

"Obtaining our SOC 2® Type 1 certification reinforces Prime Health Services' ongoing commitment to the security, availability, and processing integrity of our automated medical bill adjustment services," says Christian Puryear, Chief Information Officer at Prime Health Services. "Our clients can be confident we are making every effort to establish and maintain the highest level of security and compliance."

The Service Organization Control (SOC) 2 Report is performed in accordance with AT 101, developed to put requirements in place for CPAs examining and issuing reports on controls over subject matter other than financial reporting, and based upon around four broad principles: Policies, Communications, Procedures, and Monitoring. Each of the principles have defined criteria (controls) which must be met to demonstrate adherence to the principles and produce an unqualified opinion, meaning no significant exceptions are to be found during the audit.
