Achieves third accreditation from EHNAC
The HNAP accreditation is a widely recognized symbol of excellence in health care information processing, and demonstrates compliance with the latest industry standards and HIPAA regulations. During the rigorous accreditation process, EHNAC reviewed how Availity manages and transfers protected health information (PHI), and determined it meets or exceeds all program criteria and standards.
“At a time of heightened regulatory concerns, it is responsible organizations such as Availity that we applaud for taking the extra steps necessary to demonstrate compliance with the latest standards in privacy, security and confidentiality,” said
EHNAC evaluated Availity’s ability to meet federal and state health care reform mandates such as HIPAA, Omnibus, ARRA/HITECH and ACA. Additionally, the commission’s evaluation focused on the areas of privacy, security, confidentiality, best practices, procedures and assets. Availity’s technical performance, general business practices and overall resources were also reviewed during the accreditation process.
“The HNAP distinction speaks to Availity’s dynamic approach towards meeting specific industry benchmarks for privacy and security practices, as well as other network performance factors,” said
