The DirectTrust accreditation process is designed to ensure that healthcare organizations and entities meet high standards for data exchange, security, privacy, and interoperability, ultimately promoting patient safety, data protection, and the quality of healthcare services. Find the following steps and resources to pursue the accreditation process on this page.
Please note the following items:
- Organizations interested in knowing if they qualify for accreditation or certification must complete the Application form.
- An Accreditation Program Agreement must be signed by the applicant and submitted.
- A Financial Attestation to verify your organization’s revenue must also be submitted.
- Both first time applicants and re-accreditation candidates will follow the same process for achieving accreditation. The accreditation cycle is for 2 years. The previous accreditation ceases to exist when a new accreditation takes effect. Once an accreditation ballot takes place the organization begins a new accreditation cycle based on the criteria that was reviewed during that accreditation period.
