The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) provides for regulation of common formats, Protected Health Information (PHI), and the 9th revision of International Classification of Diseases (ICD-9). Meridian Technologies recognizes the need to understand the governing forces behind HIPAA and the impact they have on data warehouse and analytic applications.
Meridian Technologies has initiated an ongoing, internal effort to stay current with HIPAA standards. Our Healthcare Analytics Data Model and Reference Architecture allow us to create project accelerators that shorten the length of related DW/BI development efforts. But that’s not the only key advantage of working with Meridian. We can leverage our knowledge of ICD-9 to assist you in making the transition to ICD-10 upon its release. Key items include:
- PHI policy and rules
- Common formats — i.e., 835, 837, 270, 271, 834, 276, 277, 278
- ICD-9 and ICD-10
