Software AG introduces HIPAA Link and HL7 eStandard modules at HIMSS11

February 23, 2011

At the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society 2011 Conference and Exposition (HIMSS11), Software AG introduces its HIPAA Link and HL7 eStandard modules. The company will try to explain how the modules can be used to facilitate information exchange and standards compliance associated with healthcare-related transactions. The event is being held February 20-24, 2011. 


“HIPAA compliance has forever changed business processes and forced health organizations to adapt their existing systems to this new reality,” said Bill Stevens, director of Healthcare and Life Sciences, Software AG, in a recent press release. “Now, HIPAA 5010 brings additional mandates and strengthens electronic transmission rules for specific healthcare transactions. Software AG enables organizations to comply with those rules while simultaneously simplifying a complex systems environment.”

A comprehensive and highly scalable solution, Software AG’s webMethods (News - Alert) HIPAA Link streamlines health care industry transactions by providing a solution for rapid and seamless integration of providers, payers, routers, and sponsors. The module allows an organization to receive, parse, and validate all mandated HIPAA transactions and generate appropriate acknowledgements for HIPAA 5010, 4010, and 4010 A1 standards.

“Healthcare organizations generate and consume a significant amount of data, and their systems need to interact with all kinds of other software platforms, including partner, provider and regulatory systems,” Stevens said. “Software AG’s HL7 eStandard module allows any IT platform to be part of a transaction, solving the communication challenges that plague the healthcare industry.”

Recently, Software AG announced the 100 percent acquisition of itCampus, including its UK subsidiary based in Derby. In April 2009, it initiated the acquisition by buying a 51 percent stake.
