“Our solutions assist providers in attracting and retaining patients, while optimizing their practices along the way,” said , MyHealthDirect’s CEO. “Ultimately, we help providers transform the patient experience outside the moment of care with consistent, exceptional processes and service. Securing and protecting patient data is central to our commitment.”

“The Online Trust Alliance (OTA) estimated that in 2013 over 740 million online records were exposed, making it the worst year for data breaches ever,” said Scott Papador, MyHealthDirect CIO. “HITRUST certification demonstrates our ongoing commitment to providing a secure environment for patients and providers to access and interact with the healthcare system. As the number of patients we serve with appointment scheduling, reminders and other access services continues to sky rocket, our commitment to security becomes even more critical.”
