About BluePrint Healthcare IT
BluePrint Healthcare IT ("BluePrint") has been a leader in healthcare privacy and security for over a decade. Unlike many other information security companies, we are 100% focused on serving the needs of healthcare providers and business associates.

Since that time, BluePrint has worked as a trusted partner with dozens of healthcare systems, medical centers, physician networks, business associates and hospital associations to help protect their healthcare data.

In 2011, BluePrint became the first healthcare focused HITRUST Certified Assessor. The HITRUST Common Security Framework (CSF) has become recognized as the "gold-standard" in security frameworks for healthcare. BluePrint's clients benefit from its inclusion within their core methodology.
