What Does HITRUST Cover?
HITRUST maintains a common security framework (CSF) by harmonizing all health care information security compliance standards. A HITRUST CSF certification is valid for two years and is only awarded after careful assessment, validation and approval, which includes on-site visits. A HITRUST CSF certification allows organizations to follow all HIPPA security compliance standards while painlessly transitioning and evolving into better protocols for patient information management. All security requirements from multiple regulations are brought together in one central location for tracking compliance, saving organizations both time and money. Requiring vendors to achieve a HITRUST certification showcases an organization’s commitment to the security of patients’ sensitive personal and medical information.

HITRUST CSF (Comprehensive Security Framework) is a standardized approach for healthcare organizations to follow in mitigating information security risks. When an organization tells another, they are HITRUST certified in the healthcare industry, that entity can be assured of the level of information protection being utilized. The CSF makes it easy for an organization to understand and verify another organization’s stance and status as it relates to healthcare information security.
