Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) January 05, 2012
NeTLIMS™ NJ, LLC, a provider of advanced Laboratory Information Systems (LIS), today announced that its clients are implementing and using new software that will allow them to comply with the HIPAA 5010 formats that have been mandated by CMS.
The overall objective of version 5010 is to reduce the redundancy and provide uniformity in the structure of the transactions and usage of data content. 5010 provides guidance on the structure and usage of NPI and sets the foundation for the ICD-10 codes adoption.
"NeTLIMS is always proactive and timely in meeting integral guidelines, especially those related to Federally mandated compliance," remarked Gitty Kohn, Vice President of Billing and Compliance for Shiel Medical Laboratory, which has already tested and is in production with 5010 compliance. "They take care of it so we can focus on other things such as providing the same high quality service to our customers.”
NeTLIMS' AutoLIMS product suite maximizes clinical laboratory productivity, efficiency and profitability through technological superiority, accuracy, ease of use and careful attention to customer needs. Its advanced architecture and design includes multi-tier technology, multiple platforms support (all variants of Windows clients, UNIX/Windows Servers), multiple database support (Oracle, MSSQL, Informix, Cache), multiple order entry method support (screen, barcode, OMR, ASCII files), multi-user technology, browser access to lab results and flexible color XML/XSL reporting.
“As always, we want our clients to be ready to comply with any CMS mandates as they become effective," explained Gonen Ziv, COO of NeTLIMS. "These enhancements to our software will allow our clients to be able to conduct business as usual and bill their users with no disruption to their standard workflow procedures.”
