GTS Remote Patient Monitoring Platform Receives FedRAMP Clearance
Global Telehealth Services, a health care technology company, announced that its remote patient monitoring solution has received Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program authorization at the Moderate impact level.
FedRAMP is a government-wide program that attests to the cybersecurity of cloud-based products and services offered to the government.
According to the FedRAMP website, Moderate impact-level offerings are appropriate for applications where a compromise could result in serious adverse effects on agency operations, assets or individuals.
The authorization, which was sponsored by the Department of Veterans Affairs, allows the GTS VirtualHealth Platform to be added to the FedRAMP Marketplace, GTS said Thursday.
GTS said that while remote patient monitoring solutions are critical for health care organizations, they can only be effective if the system is secure and the data is constantly accounted for.
According to the company, GTS-VP is the only remote patient monitoring solution that to date has attained the authorization.
GTS-VP is ideal for managing chronic conditions and advanced diseases, as well as for providing actionable information to care providers through a single dashboard, its product page said.
The platform also includes redundant security features and meets the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act‘s security requirements.
GTS said the authorization was supported by VA’s national telehealth coordinator for neurology as well as its Digital Transformation Center.
EmeSec, a FedRAMP third-party assessor, also helped GTS continuously improve the security of its remote patient monitoring solution.
