The Trusted Network Accreditation Program (TNAP) aligns with the 21st Century Cures Act, and addresses the ONC's requirements to provide third-party accreditation for healthcare stakeholders, including HINs, HIES, ACOS, Data Registers, Lab, Providers, Payers, Vendors, and Suppliers.
“The Trusted Network Accreditation Program enables new data paradigms, accredited by organizations already known and trusted, to solve and resolve the traditional roadblocks to interoperability and consumer empowerment while, at the same time, addressing the brand new regulatory requirements like GDPR. We applaud and welcome all organizations entrusted with protecting information to participate."
