CAQH, EHNAC Partner to Discount Clearinghouse Fees

Washington-based CAQH and the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) have formed a partnership to promote electronic health data exchange through clearinghouses and establish best practices.

The partnership is centered on the CAQH Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE) initiative and EHNAC Healthcare Network Accreditation Program (HNAP). The two organizations entered into the partnership after completing a detailed comparison of the CORE rules, which set requirements for data exchange and HNAP accreditation criteria for clearinghouse operations. According to the two groups, the analysis determined that both efforts have complementary, yet distinct, requirements.

The first joint action of the partnership is a program that offers fee discounts to clearinghouses (also known as electronic health networks) that wish to achieve both CORE rules certification and HNAP accreditation. Clearinghouses with HNAP accreditation will receive a discounted fee when applying for CORE rules certification. In turn, any clearinghouse that is CORE-certified will receive a discounted fee when applying for HNAP accreditation.
