HITRUST is the most-sought certification by healthcare organizations but the cost, resources, and time required are daunting. On average, the direct and indirect costs and time of achieving the HITRUST certification are more than $300K+ and 18 months.
At Ginger, we took a different approach and completed our HITRUST assessment in less than half that budget and 11 months. This presentation will outline how nine best practices and projects implemented at Ginger helped us in our HITRUST journey. These practices include the best course for obtaining management support, implementing cross-functional projects between technical and governance teams, starting an organization-wide security program, pre-work required for the audit, tools that helped us, and lessons learned.
