PokitDok, a platform-as-a-service that enables healthcare organizations to quickly bring modern commerce experiences to market, today announced its successful completion of the Service Organization Control (SOC) 2® Type II engagement with the receipt of its Independent Auditor’s Report attesting to the company’s internal controls surrounding data security.

Based upon the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) Trust Services Principles and Criteria, the SOC 2® Type II audit is recognized as the authoritative standard by which an organization’s controls can be evaluated for both design and operational effectiveness. The process involved a comprehensive and rigorous examination of PokitDok’s practices, policies, procedures and tests of the controls related to the Security trust service principle, culminating in the formal report prepared by the independent auditing firm IS Partners, LLC.

“In healthcare, data security is paramount, so it’s essential that rigorous security practices and controls are implemented and maintained," said Ted Tanner, Jr., co-founder and CTO of PokitDok. “PokitDok is pleased to demonstrate our commitment to security by achieving SOC 2® Type II certification, and the assurances that such a trusted standard brings with it."

The SOC 2® Type II audit serves as the foundation of PokitDok’s information security and assurance strategies, with audits performed each year to ensure continued effective operations of the control and compliance.
