NYeC adheres to data processing standards and compliance with security infrastructure, integrity and trusted identity requirements

The New York e-Health Collaborative (NYeC), which is coordinating development of New York’s electronic health records network , known as the Statewide Health Information Network of New York (the SHIN-NY), says it has achieved full accreditation with the Direct Trusted Agent Accreditation Program (DTAAP) from DirectTrust.org and the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC). Direct Trusted Agent accreditation ensures compliance with industry-established standards, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) regulations and the Direct Project.

EHNAC evaluated the New York eHealth Collaborative in areas of privacy, security and confidentiality; technical performance; business practices and organizational resources as it relates to Directed exchange participants. In addition, EHNAC reviewed the organization’s process of managing and transferring protected health information and determined that the organization meets or exceeds all EHNAC criteria and industry standards.

In a prepared statement, David Whitlinger, executive director of NYeC, said, “This achievement is a critical step forward in supporting our ability to provide New Yorkers with fast and secure access to their electronic health records, anywhere and anytime.”
