RelayHealth Receives EHNAC Reaccreditation

RelayHealth, a provider of healthcare connectivity services, has been re-accredited by the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) for compliance with industry standards and best practices.  After an extensive evaluation of business practices and performing an onsite review, the EHNAC steering committee accredited RelayHealth with exceptional scores.

To achieve EHNAC recertification, RelayHealth demonstrated a high-quality work environment in compliance with industry standards and best practices, which include organizational structure, staff qualifications, training and management, quality management, capacity management, and data protection.  The bi-annual accreditation process was completed in February, and full accreditation was given to all RelayHealth clearinghouse locations around the country.

RelayHealth operates as a neutral partner in an open network environment, offering connectivity solutions that work transparently with a variety of vendor partners.  “EHNAC accreditation is the hallmark of industry recognition,” said Dave Mason, vice president and general manager of provider solutions, RelayHealth.  “We’re proud to receive our seventh EHNAC recognition.”

The EHNAC Commission seeks to accredit entities that send or receive HIPAA regulated transactions or that transport or process EDI transactions between two or more trading partners in the healthcare community.
