“On behalf of the industry leaders in the Health Evolution community, we are honored to inspire and serve as a catalyst for this important work. The principles established within the Trust Framework are more pertinent than ever for organizations engaging in cross-sector collaboration to propel a new generation of data-powered solutions as artificial intelligence forges a new frontier of innovation and discovery in healthcare,” says Richard Schwartz, CEO, Health Evolution. “The Health Evolution Forum developed the Trust Framework with the intention that its enduring principles will serve as the groundwork for industry-leading organizations and coalitions to build upon this effort and chart the path forward in an ever-evolving technology, regulatory and business environment. It is with deep appreciation that we recognize the significant work by the healthcare leaders in the Health Evolution community who contributed their time and expertise to develop the Trust Framework.”

RUHD Certification will validate to patients and other stakeholders that an organization has policies and procedures in place to protect health record data. Hospitals achieving RUHD Certification will be recognized publicly for establishing an objective and rigorous process for meeting the necessary requirements.

Hospitals may immediately begin working toward RUHD Certification and apply as soon as Jan. 1, 2024. To learn more, please visit The Joint Commission website.
