EHNAC Enhances All Accreditation Programs with Integration of Cloud-Focused Criteria

The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), a non-profit standards development organization and accrediting body for organizations that electronically exchange healthcare data, announced today that it has posted new versions of its third-party Cloud Service Provider (CSP) requirements for 60-day public comment review strengthening all its accreditation programs. This move replaces EHNAC’s Cloud Enabled Accreditation Program (CEAP) and allows those organizations who use a Third-Party CSP to more efficiently demonstrate the rigor and structure of cloud-enabled platforms and applications.

“Cloud-enabled technology offerings are becoming ubiquitous in healthcare and are helping to shape the future of our industry,” said Lee Barrett, executive director of EHNAC. “This 60-day public comment review period will allow for commentary and suggestions regarding the proposed enhancement to our accreditation programs allowing all accreditation candidates to select additional cloud criteria from within their current program so they can meet demanding CSP requirements without applying for a second accreditation.”
