What We Do for Trusted Networks

The Trusted Network Accreditation Program (TNAP) was developed 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 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.

What the Experts Have to Say


“Now is the time for our industry to work together to close privacy and security gaps across networks, address vulnerabilities across HIPAA compliance, cyber protection and ransomware prevention, address authentication and ID verification issues all the while assuring the highest levels of stakeholder trust.”

Lee Barrett
Executive Director & CEO, EHNAC

"TNAP enables new data paradigms, accredited by organizations already known and trusted, to resolve the traditional roadblocks to interoperability and consumer empowerment while, at the same time, addressing regulatory requirements. We welcome all organizations entrusted with protecting information to participate."

Marsali Hancock
CEO & President, EP3 Foundation
