Glytec garners cybersecurity certification for insulin management system
Glytec announced today that its eGlycemic Management System received certified status for information security from HITRUST.
Waltham, Massachusetts-based Glytec’s certification validates its platform’s ability to meet the highest standards for protecting sensitive data and information when working with its health system customers.
According to a news release, HITRUST CSF certified status means the eGlycemic Management System (eGMS), including Glucommander, met key regulations and industry-defined requirements as it appropriately manages risk. HITRUST CSF aims to address challenges through a flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
Glytec designed its eGMS with the FDA-cleared Glucommander algorithm, which uses real-time and historical data to recommend insulin dosing by learning each patient’s insulin sensitivity and anticipating future needs. The system provides a personalized treatment regime that can reduce hypoglycemia, hyperglycemia, lengths of stay, readmissions and cost of care.
“Hospitals across the country are facing increased cyber threats that can put patient information at risk, cause brand damage and violate HIPAA. Healthcare organizations must be able to trust that a technology partner’s platform is secure and compliant,” Glytec CTO Nausheen Moulana said in the release. “Achieving HITRUST CSF status is a testament to Glytec’s commitment to meet the privacy needs of our hospital partners, and to provide the most secure platform for the clinicians we serve and their patients.”
