HDX Industry Certifications
Claredi® 5010 Certification
In April 2011, Cerner HDX achieved HIPAA 5010 Claredi Classic certification, which includes certification of the 5010 with Errata versions. Cerner HDX had previously achieved HIPAA 4010 A1 Claredi certification.
Ingenix Claredi Classic has been a leader in HIPAA testing and certification since 2001, assisting more than 3,500 health care organizations of all types and sizes in achieving HIPAA 5010 and 4010 A1 transaction compliance.
Certification from Claredi provides Cerner HDX clients with an independent verification that HDX's products are capable of producing transactions that satisfy HIPAA required X12 transaction syntax, data content, code set validity, Implementation Guide requirements, and transaction functionality. Although Claredi's certification of model implementations of HDX products does not necessarily eliminate the need for clients to perform further HIPAA EDI testing, it does allow clients to focus their readiness efforts on their operations and staff.

Cerner HDX has received full accreditation by The Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC), a significant step in helping HDX clients meet HIPAA requirements.
Founded in 1993, EHNAC is a federally-recognized, standards development organization and tax-exempt, 501(c)(6) non-profit accrediting body designed to improve transactional quality, operational efficiency and data security in healthcare.
EHNAC provides independent peer evaluation of an organization's ability to perform at industry-established levels. EHNAC's function is to promote administrative simplification and cost savings in the healthcare industry and to provide the healthcare transaction industry with an independent capability to develop industry standards, known as EHNAC Criteria. The mission of EHNAC is to promote standards-based accreditation within the healthcare data exchange industry.
The EHNAC Commission seeks to accredit entities that send or receive HIPAA regulated transactions, or that transport or process EDI transactions between two or more trading partners in the healthcare community. These entities include, but are not limited to, clearinghouses, transactions processors, value-added networks (VANs), payers, providers and provider management organizations.

CAQH CORE Phase II Certification
Cerner HDX has achieved CAQH® Committee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE®) Phase II Certification. The CORE Seal was awarded after Cerner HDX successfully completed CORE certification testing - a process ensuring that healthcare organizations can electronically exchange or access patient insurance information according to the CORE rules.
The CORE Phase II rules are advancing the way the healthcare industry communicates and are increasing interoperability, which will help to fulfill the priorities of the national health IT agenda. CORE Phase II certification means providers working with these plans can access a richer set of consistent and accurate electronic administrative data, such as eligibility, benefits, and patient financial information. The Phase II rules also enable improved access to claims status, which was not included in Phase I.
CAQH serves as a catalyst for industry collaboration on initiatives that simplify healthcare administration for health plans and providers, resulting in a better care experience for patients and caregivers. CAQH solutions help promote quality interactions between plans, providers and other stakeholders, reduce costs and frustrations associated with healthcare administration, facilitate administrative healthcare information exchange and encourage administrative and clinical data integration.
