CRANBURY, NJ  ̶  October 31, 2017  ̶  BluePrint Healthcare IT’s client, CareSpeak Communications, recently achieved HITRUST CSF™ Certification for Information Security and Compliance.

HITRUST CSF™ Certified Status confirms that CareSpeak and its Mobile Health Messenger Platform meet key healthcare regulations and requirements for protecting and securing sensitive protected healthcare information. By including federal and state regulations, standards and frameworks, and incorporating a risk-based approach, the HITRUST CSF™ helps organizations address these challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.

“Achieving HITRUST CSF™ Certification is a very involved and arduous task. Blueprint's experience in navigating through the HITRUST CSF™ and their partnership in helping enhance our security plan and practices was invaluable. They were effectively an extension of our Security Team, always there when we were uncertain how to proceed, and an excellent partner who guided us through the process,” stated Krešimir Nesek, Chief Technology Officer and co-founder of CareSpeak.
