HiTrust CSF Certification – Columbia (SC)

HiTrust CSF – Columbia (SC)


Columbia and South Carolina healthcare companies must protect sensitive patient data from cybercriminals, especially concerning Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and Protected Health Information (PHI). Ensuring the organization has the proper cybersecurity controls, processes, and protections to maintain compliance with HIPAA and other regulations is imperative. Many healthcare payers require hospitals, medical practices, and third-party affiliates to receive HiTrust CSF certification before doing business with them. The comprehensive nature of HiTrust CSF allows enterprises to meet the multiple compliance requirements of various data protection and risk management standards. For this reason, it is crucial to work with an experienced provider to drive the process.

About the Columbia Healthcare Community

The Columbia Healthcare Community is a robust network that provides a wide range of health services and educational programs to improve overall community health and individual wellness. Columbia Health offers extensive campus services, including routine and urgent medical care, mental health counseling, sexual violence prevention, disability services, and health promotion programs. These services are geared primarily towards students and faculty, enhancing their personal and academic development.

The community is also proactive in addressing the healthcare needs of specific populations. For instance, Columbia’s healthcare system has developed comprehensive care programs for LGBTQ+ individuals, integrating physical and mental health services to cater to this community sensitively and inclusively. This includes specialized services such as the Columbia Gender Identity Program, which provides gender-affirming care and coordinates with other health services to offer holistic support​.
