What Our Clients Say

“In 2018, Surescripts utilized DirectTrust’s (formerly EHNAC’s) new consulting service for the first time as our organization prepared to make the leap from HITRUST 8.1 to HITRUST 9.1. DirectTrust’s expertise in the HITRUST requirements, combined with their deep knowledge of Surescripts, led to a very productive engagement. Using the risk-ranked roadmap of corrective action plans that the consultants developed with Surescripts, we have worked diligently for months to prepare for our HITRUST 9.1 assessment.”
