The Privilege of Protecting Health Care Data


Since the very first version of pMD on the Palm Pilot nearly twenty years ago, security has been a foundational principle in how we design and build our software. As technology has advanced, the challenges have grown but security has remained a steadfast commitment to everything we do. From how data is stored and transmitted to how we operate internally and with customers, security is as much a cultural value as it is a set of encryption algorithms or protocols.

Service Organization Controls (SOC) 2 Type 2 is one of the highest industry standards for software as a service, and is particularly relevant to health care technology. It helps potential customers to measure and assess the risk of using different services and tools, like pMD. Earlier this year, pMD successfully completed its third-party security audit, achieving SOC II Type 2 and HIPAA certifications. These reports are a validation of the things we've always done, yet it allows an easier and industry-standard medium to communicate our security commitments to our users.

Handling personal health information is a privilege. So much of health care is based on trust -  trust in your doctors, trust in your tools and their privacy protections, and trust between everyone involved in helping provide the best possible care for patients. At pMD, even though we're proud of this milestone, we never take this for granted and will continue to keep security practices a core focus of everything we do.
