The MyDirectives.com platform lets persons upload or create, store and share their advance care planning documents and effortlessly keep them updated, so they are appropriate if required. 

FREMONT, CA: ADVault, a global healthcare IT company and creator of MyDirectives and MyDirectives MOBILETM, a digital advance care planning platform, announced that it has gained HITRUST CSF Certification status through an independent evaluation of its inclusive information security control structure.

“HITRUST helps organizations ensure that the highest standards of information protection requirements are met when sensitive data is accessed or stored,” said Jeremy Huval, Chief Compliance Officer, HITRUST. “ADVault can be recognized as an organization that can be counted on for keeping information safe.”

Advance care plans permit people to record their healthcare treatment needs in advance in a health emergency where an individual cannot communicate. The MyDirectives.com platform lets persons upload or create, store and share their advance care planning documents and effortlessly keep them updated, so they are appropriate if required.  All files are saved in the ADVaultExchangeTM global database that can be safely accessed 24/7, anywhere globally, decreasing the burden the health institutions face in getting this critical data directly from patients or their caregivers during crisis times.

“The HITRUST CSF Certification designation highlights ADVaults commitment to providing the highest level of protection and security for sensitive person-generated healthcare information,” said Rick Jennings, CTO, ADVault. “ADVault has grown by providing our services to some of the largest healthcare organizations in the world, and now with our HITRUST CSF Certification, our existing and future partners can feel confident moving faster to leverage our technology to drive better goal-concordant care."

The HITRUST CSF is a certifiable security framework that consolidates and leverages the current security requirements that firms must comply with, including state, federal, third party, and other government agencies. To become HITRUST CSF Certified, corporations must go through a rigorous multi-year evaluation method.

We are honored to receive this recognition,” said Jeff Zucker, co-founder, and CEO, ADVault. “We appreciate HITRUSTs rigorous efforts to test the strength of our entire company’s systems. The announcement validates our team’s market-leading efforts to create the first end-to-end advance care planning platform, linking our award-winning consumer-facing web and mobile experiences with our ADVault Exchange standards-based global registry and repository that is itself accessible by doctors, nurses, and hospitals around the world.”
