The Utah Health Information Network is the first health information exchange to be accredited under a new program from the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission.

Industry sponsored EHNAC, based in Farmington, Conn., accredits a range of health care transactions processors including claims clearinghouses, value-added networks and financial networks, among others. To be accredited, an organization must meet certain performance benchmarks in such areas as privacy and security, technical performance, business practices and organizational resources.

Health insurers, providers and other stakeholders in 1993 founded the Utah Health Information Network to manage the exchange of electronic financial and administrative health care transactions in the state. In recent years, the network has added clinical data exchange and credentialing services.
