HITRUST RightStart: Eating HITRUST controls for breakfast

HITRUST Fatigue got me again last night. While the team we assembled to tackle HITRUST put in work last night from home, I knocked out on the couch with my screen in front of me. I'm back at it early today, rested and feeling motivated to catch up to my teammates.

Working six days a week and at all hours to kick off 2019 is a part of our journey along the HITRUST RightStart program. This post is another behind the scenes (BTS) look at a startup on the verge of submitting a legit HITRUST assessment.
