e-Prescribing

EHNAC’s ePAP has positioned EHNAC as a nationally recognized accreditation authority for e-prescribing networks and vendors.* These programs assess electronic prescribing transactions for compliance with industry standards and government regulations, and provide an organization’s existing and prospective customers with confidence that appropriate risk-based security and privacy controls are in place and key performance metrics are being met on an ongoing basis.

EHNAC’s ePAP-EHN program

Here’s what a couple ePAP-accredited organizations recently said about the program:

“Surescripts’ EHNAC accreditation demonstrates our adherence to a higher standard of quality, privacy, security and confidentiality, as well as data management. Our ePAP and DTAPP accreditations showcase the high quality and capabilities of Surescripts’ e-prescribing and HISP services.”

-Paul L. Uhrig, Chief Administrative and Legal Officer, Chief Privacy Officer, Surescripts

 

“The accreditation and site visit were very much like consulting services to improve our workflow, documentation of systems and ultimately help improved our customer service.”

– Adam Forman, Vice President and General Counsel Daw Systems, Inc.
