Synopsis, part of Intouch with Health, is pleased to announce it continues to be recognised as ISO 27001 Information Security Management compliant.

In August 2019, Synopsis became part of Intouch with Health and as a result of that acquisition, Synopsis iQ and Synopsis Home are audited as part of the Intouch with Health Patient Journey Platform.

Intouch with Health’s ISO 27001 certification has been maintained following a thorough and detailed inspection by the British Assessment Bureau.

The highest possible level of data security

After initially being recognised as ISO 27001 compliant three years ago, Intouch with Health undertook the recertification audit which is similar to the extensive initial ISO auditing process. The recertification audit reviews the complete company processes and systems from beginning to end alongside investigating continued commitment to continual improvement.

The highest possible level of data security is essential in delivering the very best and most efficient patient flow and pre-operative technology to our customers in the NHS and across the wider healthcare sector.

Intouch is therefore delighted the British Assessment Bureau is satisfied that Intouch with Health is committed to keeping its data, staff and premises secure. Intouch continues to be permitted to display the coveted British Assessment Bureau quality shield logo to demonstrate conformance to the ISO 27001 Information Security Management standard.

Intouch with Health Chief Operating Officer, Kevin Fletcher, said:

“ISO 27001 is the internationally recognised Information Security Management Standard that proves Intouch with Health’s commitment to the security of our customer, employee and shareholder information.

“With ISO 27001 still in place, Intouch with Health is able to minimise risks of potential data security breaches and reduce errors and costs, while demonstrating credibility and trust.”

Fletcher added:

“Having certifications such as this one in place demonstrates Intouch with Health’s unwavering commitment to developing and supplying the very best healthcare technology solutions that operate at the highest standards in healthcare settings across the globe.”

  • Proves to clients an organisation keeps their information secure
