“Talking To Your Business Associates About HITRUST TM CSF”

Read why your healthcare organization must utilize HITRUSTTM CSF when working with business associates and third-party vendors.



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.

What Are The Advantages to Becoming A HITRUST Certified Company?

An organization that creates, accesses, stores or exchanges Protected Health Information (“PHI”) can use its HITRUST CSF Certification to demonstrate that they meet the high standards of security prescribed within the HITRUST CSF. Many companies now accept a HITRUST Certification as evidence of compliance, thus relieving them of the obligation to audit their vendors. Companies such as Highmark, Humana, United Health Group, HCSC, and Anthem now require their vendors to undergo a HITRUST CSF assessment. The HITRUST CSF incorporates all major information security-related requirements and best practices and provides scalable cybersecurity measures based on different risks and exposures.

What Is The HITRUST CSF Certification Process Like?

I.S. Partners, LLC will perform a HITRUST CSF readiness, certification, and remediation services for healthcare organizations and their business associates to assess compliance with industry security requirements and standards, and create solutions that help organizations align with the HITRUST CSF. If your company requires both a HITRUST CSF Certification and a SOC 2 report, I.S. Partners can leverage the efficiencies between both sets of requirements, thus lowering the time and expense of effective risk management.
