HIPAA Compliance



HIPAA stands for the "Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act", an act passed by the U.S. Congress in 1996 as part of a broad Congressional attempt at incremental healthcare reform.  The law requires the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services to develop standards and requirements for the maintenance and transmission of patient health information.

What this Means to You

Under the new HIPAA guidelines: 

  • TPA's and other entities dealing with Healthcare data must support EDI.
  • These entities must select, install, and test EDI "translators".
  • Management of Trading Partners and testing will be crucial for success.

How We Can Help

  • We can handle all aspects of EDI for you, including consulting, implementation, testing, training and negotiating with your Trading Partners.
  • HIPAA may be a "new" requirement, but the EDI portion of the law is tried and true.  Just like our experience with it.
