HIPAA Transactions Convergence Project
Ingenix is sponsoring the Convergence Project as a mechanism to help the industry converge on a common set of HIPAA transaction requirements by identifying the data requirements contained in 4010A1 companion documents and comparing requirements among multiple lists. The goal is to minimize the need for unique data requirements in companion documents and to help reduce the burden of companion documents.
Ingenix provides free access to the HIPAA Transaction Requirement Lists, a visual comparison tool, and the ability for payers and others to define and maintain their own requirement lists for all the HIPAA transactions. Access is free after registering with Claredi Classic for this project. If you need assistance in creating or maintaining your own requirement lists for this project, please contact Claredi Classic Customer Support at 1-800-765-6818, option 8.
Requirement lists may be viewed and also downloaded in machine-readable form. If you need these lists in other formats, or sent to you automatically on a subscription basis, contact Ingenix Sales at 1-800-765-6089. If you want claims or other HIPAA transaction data matched against requirement lists, open a Claredi Classic account.
