AUSTIN, Texas, Feb. 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Direct Health, a virtual healthcare company based in Austin, Texas today announced that it has completed its SOC 2 Type II audit. This attestation provides evidence that Direct Health has a strong commitment to deliver high quality services to its clients by demonstrating they have the necessary internal controls and processes in place.
SOC 2 engagements are based on the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria. SOC 2 service auditor reports focus on a service organization’s non-financial reporting controls as they relate to security, availability, processing integrity, confidentiality, and privacy of a system. KirkpatrickPrice’s service auditor report verifies the suitability of the design and operating effectiveness of Direct Health’s controls to meet the standards for these criteria.
“Security and compliance commitments are critical for Direct Health providers and patients, and we are dedicated to providing service and data security assurance as part of our mission to recreate the doctor-patient relationship,” said Allen Darnell, Chief Technology Officer at Direct Health. “Our new attestation with the SOC 2 Type II standard demonstrates Direct Health’s enduring commitment to ensuring the security and continuity of our critical customer operations.”
“The SOC 2 audit is based on the Trust Services Criteria. Direct Health has selected the security, processing integrity, and confidentiality categories for the basis of their audit,” said Joseph Kirkpatrick, President of KirkpatrickPrice. “Direct Health (now Direct Health) delivers trust-based services to their clients, and by communicating the results of this audit, their clients can be assured of their reliance on Direct Health’s controls.”
