Slidell, Louisiana – August 15, 2017 Medical Practice Software, Inc. announced today that it received a CAQH® Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE®) PHASE I Endorser Seal, demonstrating its commitment to streamlining electronic healthcare administrative data exchange. Medical Practice Software, Inc. dba DuxWare achieved CORE Endorser status because it supports CAQH CORE’s mission, collaborative industry approach and administrative simplification objectives.
“We at Medical Practice Software, Inc. are excited to receive the CAQH CORE Endorser Seal, showing our commitment to HIPAA-approved data transactions rules and requirements”, said John Massarini, HIPAA Compliance Officer for DuxWare. “Since the inception of HIPAA and the HITECH Rule, DuxWare has closely followed the evolving requirements of HIPAA and Medical Practice rules for data security, data protection and staff training”, said Massarini.
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 went into effect in 2003 and established rules for patient health data privacy and security. The HITECH Act followed in 2013 adding safeguards for electronic capture and transmittal of healthcare data and billing between care givers and insurance payor groups.
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services selected CAQH CORE to develop national operating rules for HIPAA transactions to ensure that large amounts of data can be shared electronically in an efficient way regardless of the technology used. CAQH CORE is a collaboration of more than 130 public and private entities across the healthcare industry that work together to develop these rules. CORE-Certified entities cover more than 75 percent of the commercially insured population, including lives covered under Medicare and Medicaid plans.
"By becoming a CORE Endorser, Medical Practice Software, Inc. is demonstrating its support for an initiative that is reducing unnecessary healthcare administrative burden, and helping U.S. healthcare become more efficient and responsive to patient concerns,” said Robin J. Thomashauer, CAQH Executive Director.
Medical Practice Software, Inc. was established in 1991 by Mike Perkins, CEO and President. Throughout our 26 years of operation, DuxWare has consistently served thousands of providers with high-quality practice management software solutions and fully integrated EHR collaborations.
The CORE Certification program—widely viewed as the industry “gold standard”—enables organizations to demonstrate that they and their business partners have adopted and are adhering to the operating rules and their underlying standards, plus going above and beyond what is required. Endorser organizations who receive the seal support the goals of the program and bring value to their members, customers, clients and patients through their knowledge of and commitment to efficient administrative data exchange.
