Since the first release of the HITRUST CSF in 2009, thousands of Covered Entities and Business Associates have relied on HITRUST to help them comply with the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). Today, the HITRUST Approach is used by more than 80% of US hospitals, 85% of US health insurers, and many other covered entities and business associates to help them comply with HIPAA. Still, many Independent Software Vendors (ISV)s providing solutions for healthcare providers and payers are supporting their HIPAA compliance programs with a SOC2 attestation report.
Organizations must always try to keep one step ahead of legislation and the threat landscape, which is constantly changing. HITRUST’s comprehensive approach to information risk management and compliance aids enterprises in meeting their security and privacy objectives, including HIPAA compliance. The HITRUST CSF architecture, HITRUST MyCSF platform, and HITRUST Assessments all work together to help organizations achieve, maintain, and offer assurances around their information security.
The video below shares 5 reasons why HITRUST is a better security and compliance framework for ISVs serving healthcare.
