The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), a Farmington, Conn.-based standards development organization and accrediting body, announced today the development of Outsourced Services Accreditation Program for Health Information Exchange Services (OSAP-HIE), a new accreditation program offering for health information exchange (HIE) technology service providers.

The accreditation program evaluates companies that provide clinical health information exchange technology to HIEs and demonstrates that the HIE vendor meets industry-developed standards of quality in handling protected health information (PHI) with appropriate oversight regarding privacy and security regulations, technical performance, business processes and resource management. The program ensures:
• The secure movement of electronic clinical information among disparate health care information systems while maintaining the validity and integrity of the information being exchanged;
• The movement of this data according to nationally recognized standards where applicable; and
• The provision of any such services as MPI, RLS, e-prescribing transactions, lab results delivery, clinical summary document exchange, consent management, usage auditing, system security and performance auditing, and record locator services.
