EHNAC assessed the organization’s health information and oversight for meeting privacy and security, HIPAA, HITECH, Omnibus Rule and ACA requirements, as well as technical performance, business processes and resource management.
“The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services’ mandated use of Qualified Data Registries to report Clinical Quality Measures (CQMs) associated with Meaningful Use, PQRS, GPRO, DSRIP, HEDIS, CHIPRA, etc. spotlights the need to ensure that these entities meet the privacy and security obligations expected of all large scale handlers of protected health information (PHI),” said Lee Barrett, executive director of EHNAC. “With their newly acquired accreditation, FIGmd is raising awareness about the quality of its products and services as well as compliance with industry standards – a major accomplishment in today’s healthcare environment.”
