The Research Triangle Park, N. C.-based North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance Inc. (NCHICA) and the Reston, Va.-based Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) Timeline Initiative has released its first estimated timeline database addressing proposed healthcare standards, regulations and other initiatives announced by federal agencies and national standards organizations.

The timeline estimates that, based on current assumptions, implementation of the 5010 version of HIPAA transactions will be complete in 2014. According to the organizations, this date is important because the ICD-10 clinical coding system cannot be used until 5010 transactions are implemented and can be processed using the ICD-10 codes. Project management software is being used to identify the critical issues that affect the implementation of 5010 transactions and may provide opportunities to shorten the time frame for implementation, they stated.

The estimated timeline for 5010 is available for download.
