The FedRamp federal government program governing cloud security has accredited three healthcare cloud computing vendors for meeting best business practices and complying with the privacy and security requirements of HIPAA.

The accreditation comes from the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), which has 19 accreditation programs. EHNAC provided the accreditation to FIGmd, HealthcarePays Network and MedicaSoft.

We expect that more healthcare providers will utilize cloud service vendors in 2016, and knowing that there are accreditation programs like EHNAC is comforting.
