CirrusMD, the fastest growing provider of on-demand virtual primary care, today announced that its certification for the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is “In Process” through partnership with the United States Department of Veteran Affairs (VA). Currently, CirrusMD delivers access to healthcare services to millions of Veterans throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Once FedRAMP Authorization is achieved, other government agencies and organizations will be able to securely access its integrated telehealth platform.
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that provides a standardized approach to security assessment, authorization and monitoring for cloud products and services. Its authorization process includes an in-depth examination of a solution's data security and data governance capabilities, as well as the security practices of its cloud services. Working with the VA and RISCpoint to coordinate progress with FedRAMP, CirrusMD has completed all preparatory steps and is targeting to be FedRAMP Authorized within 12 months of the In Process designation listing date.
Through a national partnership, and its agreement with the prime contract holder Iron Bow Technologies, CirrusMD and the VA continue to expand availability of VA Health Chat. This technology platform connects Veterans to VA healthcare team members for a full range of virtual care services via secure text.
There is nothing quite as exciting as working with an organization whose mission resonates deeply with our firm’s values. It’s an honor to partner with CirrusMD to expand their incredible impact on our nation’s Veterans. The CirrusMD team has built something special from the start. Their talented team of developers and engineers have accomplished innovation while maintaining a Security by Design approach. This foundation allows us to build a sustainable FedRAMP program by integrating with their team and helping shift their best practices to align to a complex and nuanced standard such as FedRAMP. It's easy to see why CirrusMD is a leader in delivering secure, on-demand, virtual primary care.Jacob NixCEO, RISCPoint
