RelayHealth has achieved accreditation for the e-Prescribing Accreditation Program (ePAP) from the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), which ensures adherence to data processing standards and compliance with security infrastructure and integrity requirements for all e-prescribing transactions.

Through the consultative review process, EHNAC evaluated RelayHealth’s electronic prescribing and fax-based prescribing transactions in the areas of confidentiality enforcement, level-of-service and escalation procedures, outcome-related metrics, security infrastructures and the ability to comply with industry-standard data formats.

The accreditation process demonstrates adherence to strict standards and participation in the comprehensive, objective evaluation of the organization’s business.

EHNAC executive director Lee Barrett said that as e-prescribing continues to play such a critical role in the healthcare industry’s transition to electronic health records, solution providers need to ensure that their systems and processes adhere to industry standards.

“Privacy, confidentiality and security are all top concerns for these organizations, and becoming EHNAC accredited is a major step in ensuring full confidence in the integrity of a company’s e-prescribing system. We’re happy to have RelayHealth among this select group of accredited organizations,” Barrett said.

RelayHealth pharmacy solutions president Jeff Felton said that their electronic and fax-based prescribing transactions have passed EHNAC’s rigorous ePAP accreditation process, which is a seal of approval that underscores RelayHealth’s strong commitment to industry data standards and privacy and security of prescription data and processing.
