The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), a non-profit standards development organization and accrediting body for organizations that electronically exchange healthcare data, recently announced the appointment of three new commissioners to assist in the management and control of the Commission. Joining a team of 13 existing EHNAC commissioners from both private and public organizations, the following three industry leaders will serve EHNAC for two-year terms:

  • Bill Alfveby, vice president and chief information security officer, Surescripts;
  • Priscilla Holland, senior director, NACHA; and
  • Karly Rowe, vice president of product management, fraud & identity management, Experian Health.

"The addition of three well-respected industry stakeholders to EHNAC's driven Board of Commissioners strengthens our ability to fully represent the industry and continue to establish standard criteria and accredit organizations for security, confidentiality, accountability and efficiency that electronically exchange healthcare data," says Debra Hopkinson, vice president of operations for EHNAC. "We look forward to the valuable guidance that Bill, Priscilla and Karly bring to EHNAC as we continue to set the foundational requirements for measuring an organization's ability to meet federal and state healthcare reform mandates in an ever-evolving healthcare landscape."

Before that, he was a management consultant for technology, security and risk leaders who were striving to build or mature risk management programs such as security, privacy, and third-party management. Alfveby started his career as a technologist leading application development teams and efforts for a range of companies from start-ups to Fortune 100.
