PDHI Platform Earns HITRUST Certified Status for Data Security and Protection of Health Information
Bernardsville, NJ, June 23, 2015. PDHI, a technology services organization that develops and distributes the ConXus Platform for delivering workplace wellness and population health management programs, announces that the ConXus Platform has earned HITRUST CSF Certified status from the Health Information Trust (HITRUST) Alliance.
“HITRUST certification provides independent verification that we are meeting the healthcare industry’s highest standards in protecting healthcare information and managing risk,” said Jennifer Jolley, PDHI President. “Certification removes an administrative burden for our clients, many of whom would otherwise have no choice but to conduct costly individual audits.”
The HITRUST CSF is a certifiable framework that can be used by healthcare organizations and their business associates that create, access, store, or exchange electronic protected health information (ePHI). The framework harmonizes multiple security requirements under federal and state laws including HIPAA, HITECH, PCI, and COBIT. The CSF Assurance Program includes the risk management oversight and assessment methodology governed by HITRUST and designed for the unique regulatory and business needs of the healthcare industry.
The ConXus Platform components that achieved CSF Certified status are:
- Wellness Portal – including health risk assessment, self-management tools, personal and team challenges, wellness events, and personal health record
- Health Coaching & Documentation System
- Incentive Management – for participation- and results-based programs
- Biometrics Management
- Client Administrator Portal

Founded in 2007, the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) was born out of the belief that information protection should be a core pillar of, rather than an obstacle to, the broad adoption of health information systems and exchanges. HITRUST – in collaboration with public and private healthcare technology, privacy and information security leaders – has championed programs instrumental in safeguarding health information systems and exchanges while ensuring consumer confidence in their use.
HITRUST programs include the establishment of a common risk and compliance management framework (CSF); an assessment and assurance methodology; educational and career development; advocacy and awareness; and a federally recognized cyber Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) and supporting initiatives. Over 84 percent of hospitals and health plans, as well as many other healthcare organizations and business associates, use the CSF, making it the most widely adopted security framework in the industry.
