Webinar: Impact of TEFCA on the Secure Exchange of ePHI

Join us on Wednesday, November 13, 2019 at 1 pm EST / 10 am PST for this webinar.

To improve interoperability and reduce administrative burden across the healthcare industry, the Department of Health and Human Services’ (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology (ONC), plans to release the Trusted Exchange Framework and Common Agreement (TEFCA) as mandated by Congress in accordance with the 21st Century Cures Act.

On this J2 Global and Answers Media Network webinar event, presenters Lee Barrett, Executive Director of EHNAC, and Jeffrey Sullivan, the Chief Technology Officer for J2 Global, will discuss TEFCA’s impact across the healthcare ecosystem including:

  • Evaluate how federal programs and industry partnerships that offer resources to improve data security and privacy for healthcare organizations that exchange Protected Health Information.
  • How TEFCA improves organizational security by closing privacy gaps across networks and addressing vulnerabilities across HIPAA compliance, cyber protection and ransomware prevention.
  • Examine best practices for identity verification, authentication and privacy/security frameworks and the corresponding use cases to align with national efforts
  • Look at the impact of blockchain, cloud-based data storage and other enabling technologies in the continued development of the trust exchange framework, as well as their potential of reducing the cost and the friction of current intermediaries.
  • How TEFCA’s aim of increasing the efficiency of and access to healthcare data — while securing it from misuse — can lead to better care and lower costs for both healthcare providers and consumers.
