New Certification Demonstrates Continued Commitment to Data Protection.

Minnetonka, Minn.MedNet Solutions (MedNet), an innovative cloud-based eClinical technology company that supports the entire spectrum of clinical research, is pleased to announce that iMedNet, the company’s flagship eClinical solution, is now Privacy Shield certified. The EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield Frameworks were designed by the U.S. Department of Commerce, and the European Commission and Swiss Administration, respectively, to provide companies on both sides of the Atlantic with a mechanism to comply with data protection requirements when transferring personal data from the European Union and Switzerland to the United States in support of transatlantic commerce.

“Our decision to join the Privacy Shield program was entirely voluntary,” stated Carolyn Klecker, Director of Quality and Compliance for MedNet. “We conduct a lot of business overseas so it is important that our customers know that we are doing everything in our power to protect their data.”

As Rob Robertson, MedNet President and CEO reminds, “iMedNet is already deployed via one of the most powerful and secure cloud delivery environments available anywhere in the world.  We are leveraging the power of Amazon Web Services (AWS), as well as ClearDATA’s best-in-class, healthcare-exclusive security and infrastructure services; both Privacy Shield certified. Our participation in the Privacy Shield program is just one more way for us to demonstrate our commitment to data protection.”
