5010 Vendors: Questions and Contacts

 One of the first things you need to do is contact your vendors -- for your practice management system, electronic health record system, and/or your claims clearinghouse -- to ensure your software is upgraded for 5010 compliance. Here are some key questions to ask, and contact information for the most widely used vendors in Texas.

Questions to Ask Vendors:

  1. Can my current system accommodate the 5010 transactions?
  2. Will you be upgrading my current software?
  3. Is there a charge for the upgrade?
  4. When will the upgrade be available?
  5. When will the upgrade installation be completed?
  6. When may I send test transactions?
  7. Will I need to purchase a new software system and/or hardware?
