Data Junction Extends Support for HIPAA Transactions

With Mandated Compliance Now Less Than a Year Away, Data Junction Announces Native Support of HIPAA (EDI) Transactions

 (SafetyAlerts) - Data Junction Corporation has bolstered support for HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) with native EDI support and a new Document Schema Designer (DSD). HIPAA regulations, mandated by Congress and Health and Human Services, are designed to simplify the complex process of administration and payment of health care claims by implementing a single transaction standard based on the ANSI ASC X12 4010. Data Junction assists health-care clients with compliance by offering a code-free, visual interface for mapping data between their own internal formats and valid HIPAA transactions.

With newly developed native EDI support, Data Junction now allows bi- directional data transformation between health care management systems (practice management systems, electronic medical records, etc.) and HIPAA transactions. Data Junction has also developed a new Document Schema Designer (DSD), which provides a Graphical User Interface (GUI) for defining EDI subsets from the ANSI ASC X12 standards. Document schemas are XML-based metadata definitions that Data Junction uses for validation and to parse and create EDI (HIPAA) transactions. These robust, compliant schemas are authored by Data Junction Corporation to define all twelve X12N HIPAA-mandated transaction sets described in the nine Implementation Guides.

The new Document Schema Designer together with Data Junction and the Integration Engine provide health-care data managers with an easy-to-use and rapid-to-implement solution for integrating HIPAA transaction standards with back-end legacy systems. Data Junction supports more than 140 applications and data formats and supports a variety of transport mechanisms including IBM MQSeries, MSMQ, any JMS compliant message queue as well as HTTP/HTTPS, FTP and TCP for integration.
