HITRUST REPORTS OVERVIEW
What It Is
An audit process and certified report built on a framework of controls specified by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). The report renders an opinion on whether an organization meets HIPAA’s specified criteria related to how they create, access, store or exchange personal health and financial information. HITRUST reports can be prepared only by independent auditors that are certified members of the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST), and all HITRUST reports are certified and issued by HITRUST.
