HRSA Implements New EHB Registration Processes

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) Office of Information Technology recently upgraded the agency’s Electronic Handbooks (EHBs) to increase security. New registrations will require the person named as an Authorizing Official in the EHBs to confirm registration requests. For example, the official could approve adding a new employee, giving that person access to the information within the EHBs. These changes only apply to future registrations. No action is required for people who are already registered. Starting next month, Authorizing Officials will be prompted to do an annual review of EHBs registrations, allowing them to remove any people who are no longer with the organization. To learn more about these changes, watch the “EHBs External User Organization Process Changes” video on HRSAtube. The HRSA website includes additional resources to help you use the EHBs, including a library of videos and FAQs.
