FOR MORE INFORMATION
WASHINGTON DC USA -- HIT/HIPAA UPDATE NEWS SERVICE -- OCTOBER 3, 2019: As the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) designated author of operating rules for "attachments", the CAQH® Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE®) is launching the CAQH CORE Industry Survey on Exchanging Medical Documentation to better understand the variability in utilization of exchange mechanisms for attachments. The term "attachment" refers to the exchange of patient-specific medical information or supplemental documentation to support an administrative healthcare transaction.
While most HIPAA-mandated electronic transaction standards have been federally adopted, and industry implementation is well underway, an electronic attachments standard to simplify the exchange of necessary medical information and to support the broad use of automation in the attachment workflow has not yet been federally adopted.
This survey asks respondents questions about the exchange of medical documentation at their organization for different clinical services related to four uses cases:
- Prior authorization
- Healthcare claims
- Quality measures
- Value-based payments
DUE DATE: Responses to the CAQH CORE Industry Survey on Exchanging Medical Documentation must be received by 5 pm PT on Friday, 10/18/19.
WHO CAN SUBMIT: Respondents should have an intimate knowledge of their organization's workflow, infrastructure and data needs as it pertains to the exchange of medical documentation in one or more of the four use cases. An organization may submit more than one survey to separately address the four use cases, but an organization should not submit more than one survey per use case.
