American Medical Association Endorses CAQH CORE Effort to Standardize and Streamline Patient Administrative Data Exchange
Date:10/29/2008

WASHINGTON, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- CAQH, a nonprofit alliance of health plans and trade associations working to simplify healthcare administration, announced today that the American Medical Association (AMA) has endorsed its Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE) initiative.

Joseph M. Heyman, MD, chair of the AMA Board of Trustees, offered the following statement of support for CORE: "The standardized operating rules created by the CAQH CORE multi-stakeholder initiative is an important effort that will dramatically improve the efficiency and accuracy of electronic communications between patients, physicians and payers. This initiative complements the AMA's Heal the Claims Process(TM) campaign, which has made the elimination of waste and confusion from the medical claims process a top priority."

In addition to endorsing the initiative, the nation's largest physician's group will work with CAQH to educate AMA members about the efficiencies that the CORE rules can bring to provider practices. AMA also will help communicate strategies to its members for discussing CORE with their affiliated vendors and health plans.

CORE is a multi-phase initiative focused on improving provider access to electronic patient administrative information before or at the time of service, using any technology they choose. CAQH has brought together more than 100 industry stakeholders to collaborate on a set of uniform business rules to achieve that goal. Built upon national standards such as HIPAA, each phase of CORE expands the pool of available data and advances system interoperability.

CAQH launched the second phase of CORE rules in September. With these rules, providers for the first-time can receive consistent electronic information about patient deductible balances from potentially any health plan before or at the point of care. The CORE Phase II rules also provide requirements for electronic connectivity, patient identification,
