As data breaches continue to rise, organizations must take steps to ensure the security and privacy of the sensitive data entrusted to them, particularly health data. HITRUST is a leading framework for data security and compliance, providing a comprehensive approach to managing risk and meeting regulatory requirements for healthtech and healthcare organizations. Our HITRUST readiness assessment services can help your organization prepare for HITRUST’s rigorous requirements, ultimately reducing the risk of data breaches and associated reputational damage.
Who should consider HITRUST Readiness Assessment Services?
HITRUST readiness assessment services are ideal for any organization seeking HITRUST Certification. HITRUST requirements are extensive, time-consuming, and specific, so readiness assessments are often essential to ensure organizations are prepared for certification. Starting the certification process without sufficient assistance from a team with HITRUST experience can lead to significant delays, wasted hours, and higher certification costs.
HITRUST is relevant for organizations that are subject to regulatory requirements, such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (“HIPAA”), and work with large organizations. Organizations that handle large volumes of sensitive health data, such as healthtech companies, healthcare providers, health plans, and healthcare clearinghouses, are often required to achieve HITRUST certification to expand their services and business partnerships.
What is HITRUST?
The HITRUST Common Security Framework, or “CSF”, is a comprehensive security and privacy framework developed by the HITRUST Alliance to help organizations in the healthcare industry manage risk and comply with relevant regulations and standards.
The HITRUST CSF incorporates various industry regulations, frameworks, and standards, such as HIPAA, NIST, ISO, and others, into a single, integrated framework. This allows organizations to use a unified approach to manage their security and privacy risks and demonstrate compliance with various regulatory requirements.
The HITRUST CSF is designed to be flexible and scalable, so organizations of all sizes and types can use it. It includes a set of controls, policies, procedures, and assessment procedures that can be customized based on an organization’s size, complexity, and specific security and privacy needs.
