MARBLEHEAD, MA USA -- HIT/HIPAA UPDATE NEWS SERVICE(TM) -- SEPTEMBER 13, 2006: As of May 23, 2007, providers must use national provider identifiers (NPIs) in standard transactions in order to be in compliance with HIPAA's NPI rule and get paid appropriately. As a healthcare provider, understanding and accomplishing what you need to do to successfully transition to NPIs is vital—and it may involve more than you realize.
We can help. Join HCPro October 25 for the live 90-minute audioconference, National Provider Identifier Implementation: Comply and get paid, where our expert speakers will prepare you for this fundamental shift. This program contains thorough, specific steps that will get your facility ready for the 2007 deadline and paid appropriately for services provided.
Providers-including physicians, dentists, pharmacists, hospitals, nursing homes, pharmacies, and group practices-are now able to apply for their NPIs. But there's a lot more to implementation than just applying for a number. This program will outline:
- building an implementation team
- understanding the impact of the transition to NPIs
- selecting the right enumeration method
- determining the need for subparts
- analyzing systems impacts
- working with vendors and trading partners
