Experts Give HIPAA Interpretations
Health Data Management (November 09, 2004)

The Accredited Standards Committee X12 of the American National Standards Institute has launched a Web site to provide interpretation of HIPAA transactions implementation guides. The site enables the submission of questions to experts in the X12N insurance subcommittee, which created most of the standardized transactions. The Web site also links to a repository of questions and answers.
The site is not intended to replace the need for standards implementers to read the implementation guides and conduct their own analysis, according to the committee. Rather, it is a resource for resolution of issues of interpretations or inconsistencies within or between the guides. To access the Implementation Guide Interpretations Web site, visit Click on Quick Links, then choose X12 Interpretations in the pull-down menu.
