Featured Article by Robert Tennant, VP Federal Affairs, WEDI
For nearly 30 years, the Workgroup for Electronic Data Interchange (WEDI) has been an instrumental force in igniting public-private partnerships to empower meaningful changes in the American healthcare system. The Biden Administration has released numerous regulations impacting healthcare stakeholders, including the data exchange requirements of the No Surprises Act, interoperability and prior authorization, and electronic attachments. Consequently, WEDI plays a critical role in convening the industry to develop consensus-based responses to these government proposals while also identifying best practices and other guidance to assist in implementation efforts once regulations are finalized.
