Founded in 2009 by Bob and Mary Chaput, experts and thought leaders in healthcare privacy and security, Clearwater’s original mission was to help healthcare organizations become and remain compliant with HIPAA’s Privacy, Breach Notification, and Security rules. Responding to healthcare’s rapid deployment of new technology and the proliferation of electronic protected healthcare information (ePHI), Clearwater’s mission evolved to provide a full range of healthcare cyber risk management solutions to its Customers. The foundation of these solutions is our IRM|Pro™ software, an enterprise cyber risk management system (ECRMS) that facilitates a NIST-based risk management process, combined with a wide range of professional services to assist our customers in developing and maturing their information risk management programs.
Where we are today
Today, with over 400 customers, including over 60 IDNs, utilizing our software and services, Clearwater has become the Gold Standard in healthcare cyber risk management and HIPAA compliance solutions.
Since 2009, we have applied the unmatched experience gained in delivering privacy and security solutions to hundreds of healthcare customers to develop and continuously enhance IRM|Pro™, a best-in-class platform – built for and built by – healthcare.
Responding to the complex needs of its IDN customers, Clearwater has also expanded its professional services to include strategic advisory services, such as maturity road mapping and medical device risk management, and Clearwater Cyber Risk Services™, a comprehensive, three-year program for implementing, executing, and maturing an enterprise cyber risk management program.
