As an organization in the healthcare industry, getting HITRUST Certification was one of the primary goals of Trionfo Solutions. With such as big task ahead of us, we knew we needed help and partnered with ecfirst for our HITRUST journey. From the very beginning, ecfirst provided all the necessary information in understanding the complete HITRUST process from start to finish. As we worked through all our efforts from scoping, policy, procedures and implementation, the ecfirst team went above and beyond spending countless hours in providing key information, resources and walked us through every step of the way in achieving our goal. After months and months of effort, we are so happy to recently receive our first round of HITRUST Certification. This was an enormous effort for us and having partnered with ecfirst gave us the guidance and expertise needed in getting our HITRUST Certification. We are now working on our HITRUST interim assessment as well as planning our recertification and looking forward to working with ecfirst for the second round.

Mom’s Meals, as a food manufacturer in the healthcare industry, viewed pursuing a HITRUST Certification as a way to demonstrate that it takes security to heart. Since we did not have internal subject experts, Mom’s Meals realized that a partnership with ecfirst was paramount to a successful journey to achieve HITRUST Certification.
From the start of our project, ecfirst provided guidance and insight on the HITRUST Certification process. Mom’s Meals had a very aggressive project timeframe and ecfirst worked with us to complete the project within that timeframe. With the help of ecfirst, their very competent Assessor and with their Team, we successfully received our first round of HITRUST Certification
Mom’s Meals is preparing to work on our HITRUST Interim Assessment and looks forward to working with ecfirst to complete that in a timely manner
