The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requires the implementation of national electronic data interchange (EDI) standards for electronic health care transactions for providers, health insurance plans, and employers.
Integrating HIPAA transactions with back-end systems is a major issue facing payers and providers in the healthcare industry. HIPAA transaction integration is time consuming and complex, involving a multitude of complex variables and scenarios that require knowledge of how to build a functional map matrix for each HIPAA transaction and an understanding of electronic data interchange (EDI) structures in order to integrate this data to third-party or home-grown claims management systems.
