Health Catalyst Interoperability (HCI) has earned HITRUST Risk-based, 2-year (r2) Certified status for information security. The certification demonstrates that HCI meets key compliance requirements across a wide range of industry standards and frameworks, as well as federal and state regulations.

Enhancing these capabilities provides health organizations with more robust analytics, without extra effort, improving access to actionable data.
Earning the r2 Certification puts HCI in an elite group at the forefront of industry best practices for information risk management and compliance.

Incorporating a widely accepted risk-based approach, the HITRUST Assurance Program helps address security and data protection challenges through a comprehensive and flexible framework of prescriptive and scalable security controls.
