The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) is a voluntary, self-governing standards development organization (SDO) established to develop standard criteria and accredit organizations that electronically exchange healthcare data. These entities include accountable care organizations, data registries, electronic health networks, EPCS vendors, e-prescribing solution providers, financial services firms, health information exchanges, health information service providers, management service organizations, medical billers, outsourced service providers, payers, practice management system vendors, third-party administrators and trusted networks. The Commission is an authorized HITRUST External Assessor, making it the only organization able to provide both EHNAC accreditation as well as to conduct HITRUST CSF assessment services.
For several years, EHNAC has partnered with DirectTrust to help support the industry through the use of recognized, third-party assurance programs including the DirectTrust Privacy & Security (DT P&S) Accreditation Program. This program is used for organizations pursuing DirectTrust accreditation as a Certificate Authority (CA) and/or Registration Authority (RA).
