Data Security, Privacy Key in EHNAC Designation with HITRUST

The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) was recently designated as an Assessor for the Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST) Common Security Framework (CSF). The move will allow EHNAC to help healthcare organizations create strong data privacy and security measures.

EHNAC can now provide HITRUST CSF services, it explained in a press release. The HITRUST CSF addresses numerous regulatory and compliance requirements for healthcare, including HIPAA and HITECH. Furthermore, it helps organizations that must comply with government and third-party requirements as well, such as the NIST Cybersecurity Framework and FTC guidelines.

EHNAC Executive Director Lee Barrett explained that the designation is the next step in his organization’s recent partnership with HITRUST. Security and compliance assurances can be streamlined, helping healthcare approach those tasks in a less complex and redundant way.
