Vizzia Technologies, a software and managed service provider of real-time location systems (RTLS) for healthcare organizations, has successfully earned the System and Organization Controls (SOC) 2® Type II compliance certification.

This compliance milestone demonstrates Vizzia’s commitment to its clients by ensuring that their mission-critical data is trusted and secure. Vizzia becomes the first RTLS service provider in the healthcare industry to achieve the highest audited criteria for security and data protection.

“SOC 2 compliance means that Vizzia’s customers can be confident that their data is being handled with the proper security, confidentiality, and privacy controls,” says Howard Hatcher, Vizzia Technologies’ chief technology officer. “Vizzia is dedicated to maintaining top security standards as we continue to grow our real-time data analytics RTLS platform.”

The independent audit was conducted by Wipfli LLP, a national accounting and consulting firm, using trust criteria developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants. Wipfli serves more than 3,500 healthcare clients nationwide, including more than 500 hospitals.

“Hospitals are closely evaluating technology providers for their proven ability to protect sensitive data,” says Geoffrey Brown, chief information officer of Ga.-based healthcare provider Piedmont Healthcare. “SOC 2 Type II compliance will become table stakes in the healthcare industry, and I congratulate Vizzia on achieving this key trust standard.”
