EHNAC Releases New Criteria for Health IT Accreditation Programs

The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), a non-profit health IT data standards development organization, has released the finalized criteria for its three accreditation programs. The enhanced criteria programs include the Trusted Dynamic Registration & Authentication Accreditation Program (TDRAAP-Basic and TDRAAP-Comprehensive) and the Trusted Network Accreditation Program (TNAP-QHIN).

The EHNAC criteria for its three accreditation programs aim to create foundational requirements that measure an organization’s ability to meet federal and state healthcare regulation like HIPAA/HITECH, the 21st Century Cures Act, Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA), and other mandates that focus on privacy, security, cybersecurity, breach handling, confidentiality, best practices, procedures, and asset management.
