Simplicity Health Systems, a Health IT software company headquartered in Southlake, Texas, is pleased to announce that the company has been awarded “Candidate” status for EHNAC's Direct Trusted Agent Accreditation Program (DTAAP). Simplicity was awarded the designation for HISP, CA and RA services. These services are key for compliance with federal Meaningful Use Phase 2 requirements for providers and hospitals.
“The Health IT marketplace is evolving rapidly as new technologies are being developed and new ways of delivering care and managing the infrastructure to deliver better outcomes are taking hold.” says Chad Zerangue, President of SHS. "We at Simplicity Health Systems are committed to being an innovator in this evolution of the Health IT market. Being EHNAC DTAAP Accredited is an important step toward that goal.”
DTAAP accreditation validates the technical, security, trust, and business practice conformance of “Trust Agents” involved in “Direct”. It assures “HISP-to-HISP” interoperability among accredited “Trust Agents” and other “Direct” participants and facilitates security, interoperability and trust among Direct exchange participants consistent with state and federal law, for the purpose of improving the quality of health care through secure electronic exchange of health information.
DirectTrust has developed and is continuing to develop specific standards and policies for Directed exchange Trust Agents, which enjoy widespread recognition in the Directed exchange community. Another role of the accreditation is to reduce risk to PHI and operations through the demonstration of a risk management program with effective controls that appropriately minimize threats. Finally, DTAAP accreditation ensures accredited organizations implement secure communications in support of Meaningful Use requirements by ONC including secure, scalable, standards-based ways for participants to send authenticated, encrypted health information directly to known, trusted recipients over the internet.
