Subd. 2. Purpose.
The legislature finds that significant savings throughout the health care
industry can be accomplished by implementing a set of administrative standards and simplified
procedures and by setting forward a plan toward the use of electronic methods of data interchange.
The legislature finds that initial steps have been taken at the national level by the federal
Health Care Financing Administration in its implementation of nationally accepted electronic
transaction sets for its Medicare program. The legislature further recognizes the work done by the
workgroup for electronic data interchange and the American National Standards Institute and
its accredited standards committee X12, at the national level, and the Minnesota administrative
uniformity committee, a statewide, voluntary, public-private group representing payers, hospitals,
state programs, physicians, and other health care providers in their work toward administrative
simplification in the health care industry.
