LONG ISLAND CITY, NEW YORK, December 5, 2022 – Kinetik, a leading provider of the nation’s largest healthcare transportation infrastructure, today announced the Revenue Cycle Management and Trip Scheduler have earned Certified status for information security by HITRUST.

By including federal and state regulations, standards, and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST Assurance Program helps organizations address security and data protection challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
“Organizations like ours are continually under pressure to meet high standards of information security compliance and data privacy requirements that include technical and process elements based on the NIST security framework and HIPAA guidelines” said Aaron Oboh, CIO at Kinetik. “We are pleased to demonstrate to our business partners the highest standards for data protection and information security by achieving HITRUST Risk-based, 2-year Certification.”
