Four healthcare industry organizations are collaborating with theCenters for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS, Baltimore) to form a 5010 Testing Project to address real-time testing of the new X12 HIPAA 5010 transactions implementation.

The organizations include
CAQH (Washington), the
Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS, Chicago), the
Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) Initiative, and the
Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association (BCBSA, Chicago).

The groups will demonstrate ways to implement the 5010 HIPAA transaction standards through existing testing tools, best practices and public-private collaborations that are already recognized within the healthcare industry, including CAQH’s Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange Phase I and II rules certification testing scripts, the IHE interoperability framework, and Interoperability Specifications developed by the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel.

According to the organizations, successful completion of the initiative will demonstrate the synergies between 5010 guidelines and existing testing and certification efforts. The groups are confident the 5010 Testing Project will help the industry better understand what needs to be done to successfully implement the 5010 transactions.
