Purpose: The purpose of the meeting is to discuss the current status of implementation of various HIPAA-related standards, code sets, identifiers, and operating rules and identify and discuss ways to address any existing issues. The meetings will discuss whether there is a need to update any of the standards and operating rules to improve opportunities for uptake. The meetings will also provide an opportunity to discuss the status of industry planning for implementation of the next set of adopted operating rules. In addition, the Subcommittee will review industry status of preparation for adoption of ICD-10, with a focus on payment transition processes, the SNOMED-ICD-10 project and other mapping/cross-walking and preparatory/planning issues, as well as new areas of relationships between ICD-10 and other code sets, including the next version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th edition. Finally, the Subcommittee will discuss new uses of ICD-10 data by different stakeholders, including relationships to new payment models, big data/data analytics, population management, public health activities, research, quality measurement and improvement.Start Printed Page 34101

The Subcommittee is interested in learning about industry innovations underway in health information technology and standards as the convergence between clinical and administrative information exchanges occurs, and industry moves from a claim-centric, transaction-based administrative information infrastructure to a quality-oriented and outcomes-based reporting and information exchange.
