Emdeon launches HIPAA Simplified to address healthcare industry transition.


22 January 2010 - US-based provider of healthcare revenue and payment cycle management solutions Emdeon Inc (NYSE: EM) announced yesterday the availability of HIPAA Simplified, a one-stop online resource for guiding the healthcare industry's transition to HIPAA 5010, NCPDP D.0 and ICD-10 standards.

The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) published rules that require updated versions of the standards for electronic transactions under the authority of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA). These updated standards (Versions 5010 and D.0) will replace the current standards (Versions 4010/4010A1 and 5.1) and are designed to promote greater efficiency in electronic transactions. Compliance with the new HIPAA 5010 and NCPDP D.0 standards is required by 12 January 2012. The ICD-10 code sets are required in transactions as of 1 October 2013.

Emdeon has launched HIPAA Simplified as a resource to help guide the healthcare industry through the transition to the new standards. The web site will feature technical gap analysis documentation, simplified business-level topics, trading partner transition strategy information, frequently asked questions, testing tools and resource pages that are specific to each of the affected healthcare industry segments.
