The National Committee for Quality Assurance and the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations are considering working together to develop a HIPAA privacy certification program. The program would target companies such as information technology vendors, practice management companies, and disease management organizations. The accrediting bodies hope to reach final agreement on the program in the next several weeks.... The nation's second-largest hospital chain, Tenet Healthcare, hopes to cut costs by $100 million, in part by selling or consolidating 14 hospitals in eight states. Tenet wants to use the proceeds to buy back shares, improve efficiency, and boost profit margins.
