As healthcare companies outsource more business functions and connect their systems with hundreds of organizations across the healthcare spectrum, more parties get exposed to Personal Health Information (PHI) and the task of protecting it becomes more complex.
To address the complexity surrounding the privacy and security of PHI, and the urgent need to provide assurance to stakeholders (e.g., patients, third parties, and regulators), the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) was formed. HITRUST is a private company in the US governed by the Executive Council made up of leaders from various industries.
HITRUST collaborated with leaders from the healthcare, technology and information security industries to create a common security framework (CSF) which organizations can use to assess the security of their health related data in the organization.
