Getting Started

Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for HIPAA (BTAHIPAA) 3.3 makes it easier to develop business processes between your health care computer systems and partners. Using BTAHIPAA, developers, IT professionals, and interface analysts can work in a common environment to develop end-to-end integrated HIPAA-based solutions that work across health care applications.

More specifically, BTAHIPAA enables you to do the following:

  • Simplify health care application integration. Easily build, manage, and track distributed business processes using the BizTalk Server 2006 development environment.

  • Standardize clinical data interchange between medical applications. Quickly transform existing data transmission between applications to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) standard.

  • Increase efficiency. Cost-effectively automate all communication processes between medical applications with minimal manual intervention.

After you have built your HIPAA solution, BTAHIPAA enables you to integrate additional medical applications as your health care facility grows.

BTAHIPAA helps you reduce the Total Cost of Ownership of implementing the HIPAA standard.
