ZeOmega Achieves EHNAC Trusted Dynamic Registration & Authentication Accreditation
TDRAAP-Comprehensive demonstrates ability to use trusted digital certificates for endpoint identity, registration, authentication and attribute discovery for electronic healthcare transactions in real-time
PLANO, Texas – January 19, 2021 – ZeOmega, the healthcare industry’s leader in population health management (PHM) solutions – announced today it has achieved full Trusted Dynamic Registration & Authentication Accreditation Program (TDRAAP) – Comprehensive accreditation from the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC). Developed in collaboration with UDAP.org, TDRAAP-Comprehensive supports interoperability requirements within the Office of the National Coordinator’s (ONC’s) Cures Act Final Rule and related CMS Interoperability and Patient Access Final Rule.
TDRAAP-Comprehensive combines the extensive privacy and security requirements and in-depth validation of traditional EHNAC accreditation programs, with UDAP technical framework certification. It is designed for a diverse cross-section of organizations and systems choosing to demonstrate full HIPAA/HITECH Privacy Security compliance and supporting all relevant UDAP workflows including those for privileged client app or provider access such as in bulk data, broadcast, or targeted cross-organizational queries.
Through EHNAC’s comprehensive third-party review, ZeOmega was evaluated in areas of security, privacy, regulatory compliance and rights management, including compliance with new privacy regulatory requirements. Upon completion of the rigorous accreditation process, the organization demonstrates to its constituents, adherence to strict standards and participation in the comprehensive, objective evaluation of its business.
“As organizations look to meet the requirements of the Cures Act, TDRAAP was established to support and organization’s continued focus on interoperability and privacy/security – which are foundational components for ONC, CMS, OCR and other agencies, as well as all organizations subject to handling sensitive data. TDRAAP-Comprehensive supports interoperability with a specific focus on technical standards enabling trust and transparency for both organizational and individual access to data,” said EHNAC Executive Director and CEO Lee Barrett. “We commend ZeOmega on attaining this important accreditation that will serve as a “good housekeeping seal” of proven readiness and trust to enter onto the interoperability digital exchange highway.”
Founded in 2001, ZeOmega aims to enable clients to deliver the highest quality, lowest cost care by providing the best software for integrated, population health management. The organization supports more than 30 million lives with utilization management, case management, disease management, population health, interoperability and analytics capabilities across its market-leading Jiva platform.
ZeOmega provides a robust interoperability platform, purpose built to meet the current and evolving regulatory demands. In addition to accommodating the current CMS Patient Access and Burden Reduction requirements, it is future proofed and scalable to meet the industry where it is going. By deploying the TDRAAP accredited Jiva InterOp solution, ZeOmega clients benefit from reduced administrative burden and enhanced risk management. They no longer need to independently vet and manually register every client application that requests first-time access.
“We believe the TDRAAP accreditation adds significant value for our clients and enables them to stay ahead of an evolving regulatory environment. TDRAAP provides the much-needed governance infrastructure for supporting scalable interoperability, with a specific focus on the technical standards enabling trust and transparency for both organizational and individual access to data,” says Shaun Newton, ZeOmega’s Information Security & Compliance Officer. “This comprehensive accreditation supports the establishment of a trusted ecosystem. Without an accredited trust network, healthcare organizations would be forced to manage a manual vetting and registration process. Our team continues to embrace regulatory change and ensure our solution empowers the healthcare industry with a laser-focused, scalable interoperability platform that drives patient-centered care.”
ZeOmega empowers health plans and other risk-bearing organizations with the industry’s leading technology for simplifying population health management.
