As technology is increasingly used to share health information, so does the importance of protecting the privacy and security of patient data.
The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) aims to do just that. EHNAC is a non-profit standards development organization and accrediting body designed to improve transactional quality, operational efficiency and data security in healthcare.
EHNAC recently announced the appointment of Surescripts VP and Chief Information Security Officer Judy Hatchett as a commissioner through 2023. Judy will help continue their mission to ensure electronic health care data is safely exchanged.
Lee Barrett, the executive director and CEO of EHNAC, shared, “I look forward to the great work we’ll do together as we continue to help many stakeholders achieve quality and trust in healthcare information exchange through the adoption and implementation of industry standards.”
Here at Surescripts, Judy ensures clinicians, payers and technology providers across the country trust Surescripts to exchange clinical and medication information safely and securely. As an EHNAC commissioner, Judy will bring 15 years of cybersecurity experience and her strategic guidance to this critical issue.
“At a time when more providers and healthcare organizations have turned to new technologies to help with the adoption of virtual care settings or shift employees to work from home environments, the threat of breach or attack has been heightened exponentially”
“I look forward to working alongside this prominent group of commissioners as we collaborate on driving EHNAC’s mission of ensuring organizations who handle sensitive patient information meet the highest standards of patient data privacy, security and integrity.”
