Dubai, UAE 27 November, 2018 – IRIS Health Services a third-party company providing professional medical benefit and claims administration services announced today that it received a CAQH® Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE®) PHASE I, II, III & IV Endorser Seal, demonstrating its commitment to streamlining electronic healthcare administrative data exchange. IRIS Health Services achieved CORE Endorser status because it supports CAQH CORE’s mission, collaborative industry approach and administrative simplification objectives.
Mr. Anil Nair CEO of IRIS Health Services: “Receiving the Phase I, II, III & IV CORE endorsers seal is a recognition for our eagerness for progress and development to provide specialized health insurance administration and management services which protect the interests of the risk carriers while facilitating access to quality healthcare with no compromise on the quality of care.”
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services selected CAQH CORE to develop national operating rules for HIPAA transactions to ensure that large amounts of data can be shared electronically in an efficient way regardless of the technology used. CAQH CORE is a collaboration of more than 130 public and private entities across the healthcare industry that work together to develop these rules. CORE-Certified entities cover more than 75 percent of the commercially insured population, including lives covered under Medicare and Medicaid plans.
“By becoming a CORE Endorser, IRIS Health Services is demonstrating its support for an initiative that is reducing unnecessary healthcare administrative burden, and helping U.S. healthcare become more efficient and responsive to patient concerns,” said Robin J. Thomashauer, CAQH Executive Director.
The CORE Certification program—widely viewed as the industry “gold standard”—enables organizations to demonstrate that they and their business partners have adopted and are adhering to the operating rules and their underlying standards, plus going above and beyond what is required. Endorser organizations who receive the seal support the goals of the program and bring value to their members, customers, clients and patients through their knowledge of and commitment to efficient administrative data exchange.
