RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif. July 17, 2018 - Eyefinity, one of VSP Global’s five lines of business and the industry’s leading provider of optometric practice management and electronic health records solutions, announced today it has achieved full accreditation for the Healthcare Network Accreditation Program (HNAP) from the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC). Data protection and security remain top of mind for Eyefinity when it comes to supporting doctors in the patient care journey. This accreditation shows the importance placed on protecting personal health information and in health data processing and transactions.

EHNAC evaluated Eyefinity in areas of privacy measures, systems availability and security infrastructure. In addition, EHNAC reviewed the organization’s process of managing and transferring protected health information and determined that the organization meets or exceeds all EHNAC criteria and industry standards. To complete the rigorous accreditation process, the applicant must demonstrate to its constituent’s adherence to strict standards and participation in the comprehensive, objective evaluation of its business.

“In the world we live in today, we face numerous healthcare data security challenges, and these challenges will only continue to evolve as technology becomes more complex and regulatory compliance becomes that much more pressing,” said Lee Barrett, executive director of EHNAC. “Companies like Eyefinity are taking the necessary steps to not only ensure they are compliant but that they are working at a level that exceeds industry standards.”

Eyefinity’s HNAP accreditation is approved through 2020 and effective immediately.     

“Eyefinity understands that cyber security threats are growing and that businesses of all kinds are at risk,” said Eyefinity President Steve Baker. “This accreditation is part of an ongoing effort to ensure our customers trust in our ability to manage data with integrity and effectiveness.”
