The Trusted Network Accreditation Program (TNAP) was developed by a joint collaboration of industry experts led by EHNAC and HITRUST to directly align with the development of the 21st Century Cures Act required Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA). TNAP seeks to promote interoperability by assuring the security and privacy of trusted networks and the use of enabling technologies in the healthcare ecosystem. The program provides third-party review with accreditation for Trusted Exchange Qualified Health Information Networks (QHINs) and participants, addresses existing security and privacy compliance mandates by requiring HITRUST CSF Certification along with rights management, and compliance with new TEFCA regulatory requirements.
Developed through a coalition of industry collaborators, TNAP is:
- Built on the HITRUST CSF privacy and security framework
- Designed to affirm compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) requirements
- Vendor and technology agnostic to support blockchain and other enabling technologies
- Administered by federally recognized accreditation leader EHNAC
