HITRUST, in coordination with industry leaders, hosted the second in a series of ongoing Summits focused on third-party risk management and consistent requirements of their vendors and business associates leveraging the HITRUST CSF Assurance program.

A growing number of healthcare organizations are aligning their vendor risk management requirements by leveraging the HITRUST CSF Assurance program and establishing similar expectations with their vendors regarding CSF assessment and certification. This alignment enables a single assessment to be accepted by many organizations across the industry and reduces the resource requirements and costs associated with redundant assessments.

The purpose of the Summit was for organizations to present, discuss and clarify the requirements and expectations for their business partners relating to the CSF Assurance program and for business partners required to obtain a CSF Assessment to seek clarification and guidance.
