Cardinal Innovations Healthcare Receives SOC 2 Type II Certification

Cardinal Innovations Healthcare — July 22, 2021
Cardinal Innovations Healthcare is proud to have achieved the SOC 2 Type II certification. This proves our dedication and promise to security and delivering high-quality services through internal controls and processes. We are passionate about our work and the peace of mind we provide our members through our security measures.

The purpose of SOC standards is to provide confidence when we engage third-party vendors. The SOC 2 Type 2 report is an internal security controls report that captures how Cardinal Innovations safeguards member, provider, and employee data and how well those controls are operating.

The criteria that comprise a SOC 2 report are security, availability, and processing integrity of the systems the service organization uses to process users’ data and the confidentiality and privacy of the information processed by these systems. The report helps prospects and members assess the risks associated with third-party services. In order to meet SOC 2 Type II compliance, organizations must have controls in place that protect data from fraud, intrusions, and other unauthorized activities.

Since we work with companies for whom data protection and compliance are highly regulated and required, this certification matters to every one of our members. It is essentially the best way to know whether data will be safe with a managed care provider.

Our SOC 2 Type II certification was issued by Elliot Davis, an independent third-party auditor covering the principles of Security, Availability, Confidentiality, and Privacy. Elliot Davis evaluated over 200+ controls and only found two non-material findings, which have already been remediated. Cardinal Innovations is the first LME/MCO in North Carolina to achieve this remarkable accomplishment.
