In 1996 the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) was signed into law to provide for greater portability of health benefits and better accountability and fraud prevention measures for patient records. This law contained many requirements and components for insurance companies, health care providers, administrators, etc. One of the components of this law was the Administrative Simplification provisions which created a new electronic reporting requirement for parties involved in the communications of health related records.
The Administrative Simplification provision of HIPAA requires the utilization of EDI as the standard for the exchange of health care related messages. This provides a common standard for documents that all parties involved in the health care process may follow.
