HITRUST to Address HIE IssuesWill Outline Security Controls for Health Information Exchange
A new HIE working group will devise enhancements for HITRUST's Common Security Framework, a free healthcare compliance guide, so that it reflects the security controls needed for health information exchange.
"The goal of the new working group is to establish a uniform and practical approach, taking into account both risk and cost factors, that HIEs can adopt to ensure they and the connecting organizations meet an appropriate level of information protection," according to a HITRUST statement.
More information about the health information exchange project is available at the HITRUST blog. To express interest in volunteering for the new group, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
