SOC 2 + HITRUST
Q-Centrix received SOC 2 + HITRUST recognition in 2020.
The AICPA collaborated with HITRUST to align their reporting frameworks and develop a combined assurance program known as SOC 2 + HITRUST. The program maps between the HISTRUST CSF requirements and the AICPA’s Trust Services Criteria. Audited by a CPA, the integration between the two reports creates a more complex and reliable assessment. SOC 2+ HITRUST is a combined assessment that offers substantial value for forward, security-minded healthcare organizations.

Clinical data privacy & security guide
As care requirements become more complex, third-party partnerships throughout the organization deliver innovation as well as an additional entry path to data. As a result, health care executives are often forced to choose between innovation or data security. As a result, cyber resilience has become virtually unattainable and leading organizations have shifted their focus to speed of detection, containment, and remediation.
Based on the current market dynamics, organizations must seek the greatest levels of data privacy and security. SOC 2 + HITRUST offers the greatest levels of data security in the health care clinical data industry.
