HITRUST Certification Made Simple

HITRUST Explained

Organizations supporting healthcare providers are often pushed toward HITRUST certification. HITRUST, or the Health Information Trust Alliance, established the HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) to help safeguard electronic protected health information (ePHI). The CSF provides a set of standards and auditable controls that bring together several other compliance frameworks and standards including HIPAA, PCI, ISO, and NIST for its certifiable framework. HITRUST enables organizations having multiple security and compliance requirements to streamline this process.

Where do I begin?

Whether you are a healthcare provider subsidiary, hold ePHI, or just support organizations in the healthcare industry, the end game is the same; gain HITRUST certification to maintain and grow your business. Pressure to gain this certification has been growing and accomplishing this task is extremely important to both your personal and organizational success.

Finding the time and resources to effectively reach HITRUST certification can be a significant challenge. We often hear the questions like:

✔How much will HITRUST certification cost?
✔ How much time/effort and what people need to be involved?
✔ When can we be certified / how long will it take?


The base question inevitably is, “Where should I begin?”
