As a certified CSF Assessor firm, Elliott Davis helps organization reach HITRUST (Health Information Trust Alliance) certification, the most widely-adopted security framework in the U.S. healthcare industry. Not only does certification provide a peace of mind between the organization and its partners and patients, an organization can verify that they are properly managing protected health information (PHI).
Guided by the HITRUST CSF and a team of experienced professionals, Elliott Davis offers a security readiness assessment for healthcare organizations looking to achieve certification. The objective of the HITRUST security readiness assessment is to assist organizations in determining the applicable requirement statements, preparing for the validated assessment, and submitting the required documentation to achieve successful HITRUST certification.
Although the process for HITRUST certification requires a substantial time commitment, Elliott Davis believes there are powerful benefits to the length of the project. A longstanding working relationship creates mutual trust and respect and is key to understanding every facet of our client’s business. Additionally, our clients are apprised of the constantly changing requirements of the HITRUST process and will be more readily able to meet the multiple sets of requirements. Elliott Davis will also provide a third-party assessment, verifying compliance with HITRUST.
