Edifecs(TM) and Axway Announce a Partnership Targeting Innovative HIPAA 5010 Migration Solutions.

Edifecs unveiled a new partnership with Axway to provide innovative solutions specially designed by healthcare migration professionals and technologists to address the challenges of implementing HIPAA 5010 transactions in a timely and cost-effective manner.

BELLEVUE, Wash., May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Edifecs, the foremost leader in healthcare electronic transactions simplification and systems interoperability, and Axway, a global provider of multi-enterprise solutions and infrastructure, announced the creation of a joint partnership to provide integrated migration solutions for healthcare organizations meeting the new federal HIPAA rules. An updated X12 Version 5010 transaction standard has been mandated for implementation by January 1, 2012 requiring significant data migration to support future nationwide electronic healthcare interchange initiatives throughout the United States.

Many healthcare organizations will experience on-going solution, skill, and service gaps in their future deployment efforts. The challenges and expense of a version 5010 migration has many healthcare CIOs exploring innovative options to meet their implementation needs. With this in mind, Edifecs5010(TM) Migration was developed as an end-to-end solution specifically for the healthcare industry. The solution extends existing investments in Edifecs and Axway EDI enablement products, including components of the Edifecs Healthcare Suite(TM) and Axway's Synchrony products, while providing effective full service strategic and process improvement consulting along each step of the migration path.

"The clock is quickly ticking down to January 1, 2012," declared Todd Feinroth, Senior Vice President, Sales and Alliances, Edifecs Inc. "Healthcare organizations' strategic and tactical plans need to rapidly embrace the inherent process improvement benefits and operational savings of 5010. In order for the healthcare industry to remain cost-effective, current, and compliant in their transaction endeavors, these enterprises must consider the combined offerings of Edifecs5010(TM) Migration and Axway's Synchrony product architecture--along with our specialized technical and healthcare subject matter expertise consulting, as vital tools for meeting their evolving 5010 deployment needs."

Edifecs has developed a comprehensive "Seven-Step Pathway" to a successful and timely 5010 deployment enabling healthcare enterprises to cost-effectively migrate from 4010A to 5010 transaction standards . Built by the Edifecs healthcare technology experts, the Seven-Step Pathway ensures a complete lifecycle approach to a 5010 migration deployment: starting with internal compliance and Companion Guideline creation and updating, through rigorous configuration testing, Trading Partner compliance self-service testing, Trading Partner ramp-up, and detailed education and outreach programs.

"These new HIPAA regulations and changes in the industry are causing pharmacy benefit managers, hospitals, doctors and insurance companies to implement new policies in order to facilitate the interoperability of stakeholder systems and drive efficiencies," said Sia Zadeh, Director, Business Development, Axway. "Our objective with Edifecs is to develop solutions to make achieving data quality and compliance easier for healthcare companies. This will help them be more competitive by driving automated transaction processing throughout their organizations."

By combining the strengths of Edifecs and Axway, customers benefit from a broad array of migration-capable software, tools and technologies, and strategic guidance from Edifecs Thought Leadership and consulting teams. This enables the creation of a customized deployment strategy, based on best business practices. Healthcare customers are helped to focus on the true benefits realization of the new compliance laws--such as better coordination of benefits (COBs) and acknowledgements processing. By re-examining outdated transaction processes, the 5010 migration supports lowered costs, particularly where expensive manual interventions are taking place--like dialing into Call Centers.

Edifecs and Axway support their customer base in remediating front-end transaction problems--thereby attacking the spiraling costs of healthcare administration. Together, Edifecs and Axway are committed to supporting their customers' needs and continuing to bring innovative solutions to the marketplace. The focal point of the partnership is to simplify their customers' EDI transactions and workflow processes by providing a cost-effective one-stop solution for healthcare organizations, both small and large. In doing so, Edifecs and Axway ensure their customers maintain timely, compliance standards, and a competitive business environment by focusing on leveraging the new 5010 cost savings and process improvement opportunities. Together, Axway and Edifecs' joint solutions have the features and functionality that ensure organizations will meet HIPAA 5010.
