Medullan, a digital health firm that designs and builds both custom and platform solutions that achieve high rates of adoption in the payer, life sciences and pharmaceutical industries, today announced that its VARA platform infrastructure has earned Certified Status for information security by the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance.

With the HITRUST CSF Certified status, Medullan has met the requirements for protecting and securing the sensitive private health care information of its clients (and their end users) with regard to both of its operating divisions: 

  • Medullan’s Consulting division, for custom digital health strategy, design and development

This achievement places Medullan in an elite group of organizations worldwide that have earned this certification. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls. 

“Medullan’s dedicated to information security because of our exclusive focus on making digital health innovation a reality.
