CAQH Core Rules Final Component of HITSP Interoperability Standards Formally Recognized By HHS Sec. Leavitt
Date:2/11/2008

WASHINGTON, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- CAQH announced today that the eligibility data content section of its Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE) Phase I rules is a final component of the Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel's (HITSP) first set of interoperability standards. These standards were formally recognized by Health and Human Services Secretary Mike Leavitt late last month.

This recognition means that those CORE rules, included in HITSP's Consumer Empowerment Interoperability Specifications, can be incorporated into federal agencies' healthcare programs. It also marks the start of a process through which the Certification Commission on Health Information Technology (CCHIT) can begin testing for CORE data content compliance in products it certifies. Inclusion of the CORE rules demonstrates the need for a national approach to clinical and administrative data integration, as well as HHS' intent to build upon existing market momentum to create such an approach.

"We are very pleased that the CORE Phase I rules were embraced by HITSP and recognized by Secretary Leavitt," said Robin J. Thomashauer, CAQH executive director. "This clearly shows that our industry can voluntarily make significant contributions to improving electronic healthcare data exchange at the federal level."

HITSP, a standards panel of the American National Standards Institute, was established to harmonize the hundreds of individual standards needed to create a nationwide health information network. The panel works with the Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology to ensure seamless implementation of the interoperability specifications. HITSP is well underway in working on its second set of interoperability specifications and the full set of CORE Phase I rules are included in the draft Medications Management interoperability specification.

CAQH launched CORE to create an all-payer solution
