NeHC Offers Program on Guidelines for Electronic Transactions

Healthcare Administrative Transactions Simplified: The Role of Federally Mandated Operating Rules

The National eHealth Collaborative (NeHC) is a public-private partnership that enables secure and interoperable nationwide health information exchange to advance health and improve healthcare. NeHC was established through a grant from the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (ONC) to build on the accomplishments of the American Health Information Community (AHIC), a federal advisory committee to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) until 2008, and is led by some of the nation’s most respected thought leaders in healthcare and health IT.

The National eHealth Collaborative’s NeHC University is a web-based education program designed to provide stakeholders with timely and relevant information on health information technology and health information exchange in the US. The University offers introductory and advanced programs focusing on health IT topics, trends, and initiatives.

On Monday NeHC in partnership with CAQH CORE will present a joint program on the national healthcare operating rule mandate as detailed in Section 1104 of the Affordable Care Act (ACA).  Operating rules address the business rules and guidelines to make electronic transaction interoperability more predictable and consistent.
