What is HITRUST CSF?
Founded in 2007, HITRUST was born out of the belief that information protection should be a core pillar of, rather than an obstacle to, the broad adoption of health information systems and exchanges. HITRUST – in collaboration with public and private healthcare technology, privacy and information security leaders – has championed programs instrumental in safeguarding health information systems and exchanges while ensuring consumer confidence in their use.
HITRUST programs include the establishment of the HITRUST CSF, which is a common risk and compliance management framework; an assessment and assurance methodology; educational and career development; advocacy and awareness; and a federally recognized cyber Information Sharing and Analysis Organization (ISAO) and other supporting programs and initiatives.
Over 84 percent of hospitals and health plans, as well as many other healthcare organizations and business associates, use the HITRUST CSF, making it the most widely adopted security framework in the industry.
