Zyantus, a leading developer of electronic insurance claims processing and software solutions for medical, dental and other health care specialists, announces Claredi has certified EClaims OS claim processing service as HIPAA 5010 compliant. Claredi HIPAA 5010 Certification is an important step in demonstrating Zyantus’ ability to conduct health care transactions utilizing pending HIPAA 5010 transaction standards.
Beginning January 1st, 2012, a federal mandate requires health plans, clearinghouses and health care providers to use new transaction standards when conducting certain health care transactions. The new 5010 standards are being adopted for several key reasons:
1. To support the ICD-10 implementation
2. To provide the ability for enhanced data content within transactions
3. To increase transaction uniformity among insurance payers
4. To streamline reimbursement transactions
5. To support pay for performance initiatives
To help clients cope with the pressure of meeting the looming HIPAA 5010 compliance deadline, Zyantus devoted considerable time, resources and effort to earning this important certification for its EClaims OS service.
“This certification demonstrates both our capability to exchange information using the new standards and our commitment to our loyal client base to ease the administrative burden they face on a daily basis,” stated Zyantus President Adam Schwindt. “In many cases, this new capability will allow our customers to continue using their current software systems without changes or upgrades, saving them thousands of dollars in hardware, software and training costs. Our clients have limited resources available and can certainly use them in other areas that more directly affect the quality of care they deliver to their patients.”
Claredi, an Ingenix product, has been a leader in HIPAA testing and certification since 2001, assisting more than 3,500 health care organizations of all types and sizes achieve HIPAA transaction compliance. Claredi Certification is a result of testing transactions in relation to all seven WEDI-SNIP types of recommended testing, validation against more than 70 continually maintained code sets, and additional testing against over 1,000 payer companion documents. Achievement of Claredi certification is recognized throughout the health care industry as an accurate predictor of success in production.
