HITRUST Alliance is composed of leaders from the healthcare industry pursuing a more coherent approach to healthcare security.
HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) is a 1996 U. S. law that provides privacy standards to protect patients’ medical records and other health information provided to health plans, doctors, hospitals, and other healthcare providers.
Covered Entities, Business Associates, and Business Associate Subcontractors are all responsible for complying with HIPAA regulations. Section 164.308 (a)(5)(i) Security Awareness and Training Standard require organizations to implement an awareness training program.
The HITRUST security maturity evaluation and points process award healthcare providers a certification.
This certification verifies that the company followed the Common Security Framework (CSF). The latest version, CSF 9.3, consolidates multiple regulations. The HITRUST series of courses are incredibly useful for the organization in the right scoping, selecting risk factor-based controls level, correctly applying HITRUST scoring, planning for certification, and more.
The HITRUST Foundation Part I course is designed to ensure employees understand the importance of HITRUST and fulfil the HITRUST training requirements.
The HITRUST courses are helpful for compliance, cybersecurity, information technology, and audit professionals to enhance security and compliance skills.
