HEALTH INFORMATION TRUST ALLIANCE
Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) was created to promote security of healthcare information, while implementing health information systems and exchanges. Multiple healthcare organizations collaborated under HITRUST’s guidance to develop the Common Security Framework (CSF), which incorporates security controls and requirements from many general standards, regulations, and best practices applicable to healthcare. HITRUST brings these requirements into one set of controls.
Health organizations who follow the HITRUST CSF assurance program provide reassurance to internal and external stakeholders that the multitude of risks to the electronic personal health information (ePHI) of customers and patients have been sufficiently addressed.
The Mako Group can help your healthcare organization follow the HITRUST CSF assurance program by performing a baseline, detailed control gap analysis and by providing a roadmap for your organization to follow to lower your risk exposure.
