A new two-minute video by CAQH Commitee on Operating Rules for Information Exchange (CORE®) provides an overview of CORE Certification. This e-program enables entities to demonstrate that they are adhering to the CAQH CORE Operating Rules and underlying standards for administrative data sharing across the healthcare system. Developed by industry for industry, the CORE Certification program is widely recognized as the industry gold standard for testing conformance to the operating rules.
CAQH CORE is the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services designated author of the operating rules and administers voluntary certification in the operating rules for Phases I-III. The Phase IV testing site is currently open for beta testing. The formal launch will occur in Q1 of 2017. To date, more than 300 CORE certifications have been awarded to health plans, providers, clearinghouses and vendors.
