HITRUST Compliance - Health Information Trust Alliance

What exactly does HITRUST mean?

HITRUST stands for the Health Information Trust Alliance. This alliance is a trade organization of lots of major insurance companies and providers across the private and public healthcare sectors. The alliance created a voluntary set of common security guidelines that are intended to adhere to all of the demands of state, federal and international data security standards. Thanks to HITRUST’s increased data security standards, more and more business organizations that are outside of the healthcare sector have started to adopt these guidelines to help with their own data security needs.

How is HITRUST compliance determined?

To test for HITRUST compliance, organizations need to check on their current security measures and choose a certified HITRUST assessor to help. Next, businesses will want to buy and complete the official assessment. The HITRUST assessor will audit and validate the assessment on their own. The companies that pass HITRUST’s graded score card are then considered to be HITRUST-compliant.
