HITRUST Process and Timeline


The HITRUST Process includes six steps: defining your scope, determining next steps, choosing your HITRUST validation type, your gap assessment and remediation, final HITRUST CFS assessment, and your HITRUST interim assessment. Check out this data sheet and checklist that describe the HITRUST Certification process.

Being HITRUST CSF certified can assist you in your HIPAA compliance efforts because some of the requirements overlap. 

Not necessarily. Because a HITRUST CSF can help you meet other frameworks such as a HIPAA risk assessment or a NIST cybersecurity assessment, or other assessments, you could save money by becoming HITRUST certified.

Depending on your initial readiness, the amount of time needed for remediation, and the size/complexity of your organization, your HITRUST assessment can take anywhere from 2-8 weeks on average for the assessment and a minimum of 8 weeks for your assessment to be processed and certification awarded.

This means it typically takes 3-4 months to complete your HITRUST assessment, remediation, and receive certification.
