It’s Time to begin upgrading your medical practice’s HIPAA policies and forms so that your medical practice meets the industry’s newest standards starting in October 2013. The upgrades made in HIPAA 5010 have been anticipated because the existing HIPAA standards are quickly becoming outdated.
HIPAA 5010 promises to improve consistency in medical practice healthcare transactions.
HIPAA 5010 will utilize a uniformed and updated coding system for medical billing. The regulations and rules of HIPAA 5010 will also increase the efficiency of healthcare transactions by removing the collection of patient data that bears no significant necessity or relevance to ensuring the proper functions of healthcare information processing systems. Upgrades to the privacy rules, forms and coding systems are scheduled to be made effective by October 1, 2013.
