We understand that all of this stuff can get confusing and you just don’t have the time to keep up. There has been a lot of changes over the last year in the healthcare industry that has affected your practice, your patients, and your bottom line. One of these changes, that has been causing a lot of headaches, is the implementation of ANSI 5010. With a compliancy date of March 1st 2012 we are rapidly approaching the deadline and this has put a lot of pressure on individual practices across the country as well as the payers.
“ANSI 5010 is the electronic data format standard that every provider is required to use in health care transactions, code sets, and identifiers.”
Our friends over at ADP AdvancedMD put together a quick overview of ANSI 5010 that should help clarify just exactly what this stuff is all about. You can also head over to CMS for additional detail.
Also don’t forget that you can always pick up the phone and give us a call at anytime!
