We Protect Patient Information Everyday

Trust between patients and their healthcare providers is crucial. The foundation for this confidence is the assurance that patients will get quality medical attention and that their Protected Health Information (PHI) will be secure. The provider-patient relationship is put in danger if that confidentiality is breached, even inadvertently, in addition to breaking legal regulations like HIPAA and HITECH. Patients and partners can rest easy knowing that organizations certified under HITRUST (Health Information Trust Alliance), the most extensively used security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry, have implemented a controlled environment to protect patient information.

As a HITRUST Authorized CSF Assessor, Protected Harbor assists healthcare enterprises in obtaining HITRUST certification and advises clients of the procedure’s constantly changing requirements. Our team of dedicated experts translates many security frameworks into a single language under the direction of the HITRUST CSF. In addition to providing a third-party evaluation confirming clients’ compliance with the HITRUST CSF, we offer a prescriptive roadmap to assist clients in implementing security controls by regulatory standards.

Is HITRUST Required?

While HIPAA stipulates specific penalties for data security violations, the healthcare sector controls and manages HITRUST enforcement. Since hospitals and payers now demand certification, HITRUST has quickly gained traction in the market as a requirement for vendors and service providers.

Although HITRUST certification is not always necessary when implementing new technology, it does offer chances to simplify security and compliance during the implementation process.
