EHNAC HISP Privacy & Security (P&S): This program accredits the HISP for HIPAA Privacy and Security which is a requirement when an Organization is accredited for the HISP specific requirements by Direct Trust. The Direct Trust HISP program is a new initiative by Direct Trust in 2018 for all member HISPs**.
The Trusted Network Accreditation Program (TNAP) was developed to directly align with the development of the 21st Century Cures Act required Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA). TNAP seeks to promote interoperability by assuring the security and privacy of trusted networks and the use of enabling technologies in the healthcare ecosystem.
DirectTrust is a non-profit health care industry alliance that has established and maintains rules, standards, and policies associated with the operation of the security and trust-in-identity layer for Direct exchange. Taken together, these make up a Security and Trust Framework that supports both Direct exchange implementers and users, in the following ways.
The DirectTrust-EHNAC accreditation program is endorsed by the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC). At the end of March 2013 ONC awarded DirectTrust a cooperative agreement grant as part of the Exemplar HIE Governance Entity Program.
