The HITRUST CSF Assurance program is a common, standardized methodology to effectively and consistently measure compliance and risk via simplified information collection and reporting, consistent testing procedures and scoring, and demonstrable efficiencies and cost-containment; and additional assurances around the accuracy, consistency and repeatability of assessments due to the use of pre-qualified professional services firms—all of which is designed to meet the unique regulatory and business needs of the healthcare industry. In short, it is a risk-based approach to selecting HITRUST CSF controls for assessment, including management oversight of the assessment. The HITRUST CSF Assurance Program delivers simplified compliance assessment and reporting that addresses multiple federal, state and industry requirements for both covered entities and their business associates.
