Reports From The Field

HIPAA.ICC.NET created to facilitate transmission

Internet Commerce Corp. (ICC) says it has created a new service to address the need for health care payers and providers to exchange health care transactions that conform with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements. The new service, known as HIPAA. ICC.NET, incorporates software from eServices Corp. as well as that company's expertise in the new health care transaction requirements.

The company says that HIPAA.ICC.NET provides for seamless transmission of the HIPAA standard transactions between payers and providers.

"In today's health care environment, controlling costs is a major challenge," says ICC marketing vice president Arnold Capstick. "This new capability is aimed at providing a highly reliable, secure, accurate service at transaction prices that are more cost-effective than the current norm in the health care industry. HIPAA.ICC.NET allows users to comply with HIPAA regulations with a minimal investment of time and money."
