The Texas Health Services Authority (THSA) is Seeking Preferred Vendors for SECURETexas, A Privacy and Security Certification Program

August 21, 2017 

The THSA is pleased to announce an open enrollment period for its SECURETexas Preferred Vendor Program. The period will run between September 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017. Preferred Vendors will still be able to sign up outside of the enrollment period for a nominal fee.

The THSA is the certifying body for SECURETexas, a privacy and security certification awarded to covered entities that demonstrate compliance with Texas and federal privacy and security laws that govern the use of protected health information (PHI). SECURETexas certification is also a mitigating factor for fines or penalties brought under the Texas Medical Records Privacy Act.

The THSA is expanding its program to recognize assessments from a variety of vendor partners, which allows you to enhance your existing privacy and security offerings. THSA will enter into partnerships with vendors to incentivize certifications. New partners will be added to the list of preferred vendors on the THSA website.
