Advance care plans allow people to record their healthcare treatment wishes in advance, in the event of a health emergency where the person can’t communicate. The MyDirectives.com platform lets individuals upload or create, store and share their advance care planning documents and easily keep them updated so they are relevant if needed. All files are stored in the ADVault Exchange global database that can be securely accessed 24/7 anywhere in the world, reducing the burden health organizations face in getting this critical information directly from patients or their caregivers during times of crisis.
“The HITRUST CSF Certification designation highlights ADVault’s commitment to providing the highest level of protection and security for sensitive person-generated healthcare information,” said Rick Jennings, CTO of ADVault. “ADVault has grown by providing our services to some of the largest healthcare organizations in the world, and now with our HITRUST CSF Certification, our existing and future partners can feel confident moving faster to leverage our technology to drive better goal-concordant care.”

The HITRUST CSF is an overarching, certifiable security framework that incorporates and leverages the existing security requirements that organizations must comply with, including requirements of Federal, state, third party, and other government agencies. To become HITRUST CSF Certified, companies must go through a rigorous multi-year evaluation process. The HITRUST CSF was developed by HITRUST®, a leading data protection standards development and certification organization, and has been widely adopted by leading healthcare payers, providers, and state and regional healthcare information exchanges as their preferred information security framework.
“We are honored to receive this recognition,” said Jeff Zucker, co-founder and CEO of ADVault. “We appreciate HITRUST’s rigorous efforts to test the strength of our entire company’s systems. Today’s announcement validates our team’s market-leading efforts to create the first end-to-end advance care planning platform, linking our award-winning consumer facing web and mobile experiences with our ADVault Exchange standards-based global registry and repository that is itself accessible by doctors, nurses and hospitals around the world.”
