Achieving the gold standard for data security provides Surgical Notes clients
with assurances that their data is managed to the highest standards
Surgical Notes, a nationwide provider of billing services and solutions
for the ambulatory surgery center (ASC) and surgical hospital markets,
today announced it has completed its Service Organization Controls (SOC
2 Type II) audit as outlined by the American Institute of Certified Public
Accountants Trust Services criteria covering security, availability, and
As ASCs increasingly enlist the help of partners to provide services that
are core to their business operations and strategy, there is a need for
more confidence in and transparency into service providers' operations,
processes, and results. Since Surgical Notes clients rely on the company's
systems to process, transmit, and store sensitive data, the company takes
considerable care in designing its systems to achieve the highest levels
of security, reliability, and scalability. That also includes developing
and maintaining a comprehensive set of security policies, procedures,
and controls to keep client data protected and safe.
The audit scope analyzed Surgical Notes' controls in place and involved
multiple departments, such as operations, finance, human resources, compliance,
quality, information technology, software development, organization, and
administration. The auditing process included an in-depth review of company
policies and procedures for data handling, tests of the organization's
security controls, and employee interviews.
Surgical Notes' controls, policies, and procedures were instrumental
in helping the company obtain a successful SOC 2 Type II examination audit
that was executed by a licensed CPA and independent auditing firm. Surgical
Notes intends to continue this annual recertification examination.
"When ASCs are evaluating vendors that will be accessing sensitive
data, those that have achieved SOC 2 Type II compliance demonstrate a
commitment and ability to protect that data," said Nathan Hess, Chief
Technology Officer of Surgical Notes. "Successfully completing this
audit is a reflection of our company values and further represents our
commitment to protecting our clients' and their patients' confidential
information while delivering exceptional service. This attestation represents
one more reason why we are the leading ASC revenue cycle management services
provider and continue to maintain the trust and confidence of our clients."
