Particle Health

Today, Particle Health announced that the company has undergone a System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2 SM examination resulting in a CPA's report stating that management of Particle Health maintained effective controls over the security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of its API platform. The engagement was performed by BARR Advisory, P.A, with Vanta serving as an advisor.

A SOC 2 SM report is designed to meet the needs of existing or potential customers who need assurance about the effectiveness of controls used by the service organization to process customers' information. This ensures that Particle Health's API platform, which provides digital healthcare providers with access to more than 270 million patient electronic health records (EHRs), operates with industry-leading data security standards.  

"We're proud to announce that our SOC 2 SM report has verified that we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to security, along with HIPAA Security Rule requirements," said Dan Horbatt, co-founder and CTO of Particle Health. "Companies that partner with us to access electronic health records (EHRs) using our universal API can rest assured that we've passed stringent data security standards to mitigate all operating risks." 

Current and prospective customers interested in a copy of the SOC 2 SM report may contact Machi Davis, Senior Director of Operations at Particle Health.
