Before starting the Certification process, HITRUST recommends a self-assessment or readiness assessment be performed to prepare organizations for the validated assessment. To begin the Certification process, please select a HITRUST Assessor. Once you select an Assessor, you will need to purchase a validated assessment from HITRUST. Complete the validated assessment using the MyCSF tool and then the Assessor will perform the validation/audit work. Please note access to the MyCSF is granted for 90 days. Once the Assessor work is complete, please submit to HITRUST for review. HITRUST will create a report and, depending on the scores in the report, will issue a letter of certification.
