*Note – The EDI Networking Group is currently inactive.  

The Board of Directors decided to put the HIPAA COW EDI Networking group on hiatus for a number of reasons.  There are no immediate mandates regarding transactions, so there has been no need for quarterly calls and there has not been enough content to fill an entire track at our conferences.  The Board of Directors will continue to monitor topics of interest in the EDI realm and if new content emerges, they will evaluate how to proceed.

If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free to share them with us at Email.

If you are unsure of your status under the HIPAA regulations, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) has information to help you make that determination:
