How Healthcare Providers Can Participate in the 2015 CAQH Index

Listen to Emory and Albany Internal Medicine to Learn How Your Hospital, Health System or Healthcare Practice Can Significantly Cut Administrative Costs


Healthcare providers and health plans are in the process of moving from manual to electronic business transactions in order to achieve substantial savings in time, accuracy and costs.

The CAQH Index™ is an annual report from the non-profit health organization CAQH that tracks this transition, detailing adoption rates and potential savings, to demonstrate progress made and gaps remaining. The report creates its estimates based on data submitted by providers and health plans. In 2014, the health plan data represented 112 million enrollees on more than four billion transactions.

Work is now underway on the 2015 CAQH Index and we need more provider participants. We invite your hospital, health system or healthcare practice to participate in this important, industry-wide research effort by attending.

  • Listen to the experience of a large hospital system and a 13-provider internal medicine practice that participated in the 2014 CAQH Index report.
  • Learn about the time commitment required and the guidance your organization will receive from our research partner, NORC.
  • Review the type of benchmark information your organization will receive on how you compare with others in the transition to electronic business transactions.
