At MedMe, keeping patient data safe is our top priority. From internal control compliance to ensuring data security, we are committed to maintaining privacy and confidentiality across our platform. That’s why we’re so thrilled to announce that we are SOC 2 Type II certified!

Today, MedMe announces that the company has undergone a System and Organisation Controls (SOC) Type 2 examination resulting in a CPA’s report stating that management of MedMe maintained effective controls over the security, availability and confidentiality of its digital platform. The engagement was performed by BARR Advisory, P.A and guided by Vanta.

As a trusted partner in pharmacies all across Canada, MedMe is committed to ensuring that privacy and confidentiality are maintained. In 2021, the platform helped pharmacies administer more than 544,302 flu shots, 2,219,143 COVID vaccine doses and more than 155,355 COVID tests. With such a large impact on the ever-changing pandemic situation, we understand how important it is to keep data safe. Security is guaranteed with a SOC 2 report, which is designed to meet the needs of existing or potential customers who need assurance about the effectiveness of controls used by the service organisation to process customers’ information.

"We are pleased that our SOC 2 report has shown we have the appropriate controls in place to mitigate risks related to security, availability, and confidentiality along with HIPAA Security Rule requirements,” said Purya Sarmadi, CEO and Co-Founder of MedMe. “We’re proud to serve the largest pharmacy organisations in Canada and look forward to supporting practices worldwide as they navigate technological transformation.”

The following principles and related criteria have been developed by the American Institute of CPAs (AICPA) for use by practitioners in the performance of trust services engagements:

  • Security: The system is protected against unauthorised access (both physical and logical).
  • Availability: The system is available for operation and use as committed or agreed.
  • Confidentiality: Information designated as confidential is protected as committed or agreed.

MedMe is committed to renewing the SOC 2 certification annually and maintaining our clients’ trust. Current and prospective customers interested in a copy of our SOC 2 report may contact Nicholas Hui (Chief Product Officer).
