The independent certification body DNV-GL has awarded SmartMed its annual ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 certification for the 6th year in a row. The certification shows that SmartMed meets all requirements around information security and carefully protects medical data.
Importance of certification
ISO 27001 is an international standard for information security. The certification demonstrates that SmartMed complies with all the requirements surrounding this security. The NEN 7510 certificate recognises that SmartMed carefully protects all medical data. For both certificates, the effectiveness of the management system is examined by means of an audit and whether it complies with the application of laws, regulations and contractual requirements.
Information security at SmartMed
With the award of these certificates, SmartMed can demonstrate that it does everything in its power to create the safest possible working environment for information management. Both the proactive attitude of SmartMed and the functioning of the Information Security Management System (ISMS) were experienced as very positive. With all the developments in the medication domain, data protection is a high priority. In the transfer of data between healthcare providers and patients, the developed standards were used in a careful manner.
SmartMed is very pleased with achieving the ISO 27001 and NEN 7510 certifications. Koen van de Kouwe, Quality Assurance & Regulatory Affairs: "I am proud that SmartMed has successfully achieved these certificates for the sixth year in a row. The fact that the audit once again passed with zero deficiencies confirms that information security is fully under control at SmartMed."
