St. Paul, Minnesota – March 13, 2012 — With the extended March 31, 2012 deadline for the adoption of the ANSI X.12 5010 transaction set nearly here many organizations are scrambling to comply with the mandate. The US Department of Health and Human Services mandated the adoption of the ANSI X.12 5010 transaction set, by payers in the healthcare industry, in order to support the expanded ICD-10 codes set. While the mandate does not require trading partners of payers to transition to the 5010 transaction set, all healthcare organizations will eventually feel the impact of these new initiatives. Not all companies in the healthcare industry have struggled with this transition, many have successfully completed their transition through both internal and external efforts.

For example, the Minnesota-based company, Smart Data Solutions, has already completed development of ANSI X.12 5010 transaction set and the company is currently trading with this set with all of their clients who have requested it. To begin the process Smart Data Solutions reached out to clients in early 2011 to ensure that each business partner and customer knew the steps that needed to be taken to transition to the new HIPAA standard.
