The RMAP (Redix Map for HIPAA) Module is an optional add-on to the Redix AnyToAny and Network Server-Based AnyToAny Format Converter Engines. The RMAP Module consists of a collection of HIPAA maps. These maps convert a file in the Redix internal format into a HIPAA file, and vice versa. Files in the Redix internal format are CSV (Comma Separated Value) files that encapsulate HIPAA data into a more concise and readable format. Many businesspeople find the Redix internal format easier to understand, while many programmers/system engineers find the format easier to program with because of the fewer number of records and fields. As a result, many Redix clients have adopted the Redix internal format as their own internal format for storing healthcare data.
Enterprises can use the RMAP Module to create HIPAA files. For example, if an enterprise wishes to create a HIPAA 837 Professional file, then the enterprise should first create a file in the Redix internal format instead of in the HIPAA 837 Professional format. After creating the file, the enterprise can simply plug the file into the Redix HIPAA map in the RMAP Module to generate the corresponding HIPAA 837 Professional file.
Enterprises can also use the HIPAA maps in the RMAP Module to validate and convert HIPAA files into files in the Redix internal format. The Redix HIPAA map will first validate the incoming HIPAA file. Only after the HIPAA file has been validated and deemed HIPAA-compliant will the file in the Redix internal format be generated.
The Redix internal format is a logical alternative to the complicated HIPAA format. Because the Redix internal format encapsulates the same data as the latest HIPAA formats, if an enterprise is able to store his healthcare data in the Redix internal format, then it does not have to worry about whether or not its data is HIPAA-compliant.
If an enterprise were to continue using his proprietary internal format alone, it would likely encounter future non-compliance issues. Non-compliance issues often involve resubmitting claims and wasting time and money. Redix is committed to ensuring that the RMAP Module and all other Redix products remain in total compliance with the latest HIPAA standards.
The following table compares the Redix internal format with the HIPAA format. Note that HIPAA segments are equivalent to records in the Redix internal format.
|Redix Internal Format (RMAP)||HIPAA Format|
|Total Number of Segments or Records||Has fewer records, e.g. an RMAP 837 Professional file has 35 records.||Has more segments, e.g. a single HIPAA 837 Professional file has a total of 226 segments.|
|File Size||Smaller file sizes, e.g. a typical RMAP 834 file is 76KB in size, smaller than the equivalent HIPAA 834 file, which is 94 KB. Both files contain the same information.||Larger file sizes, e.g. if a HIPAA 834 file is 94KB in size, then the equivalent Redix RMAP file is around 76 KB. Both files contain the same information.|
|HIPAA Compliance||Yes. Redix ensures that all generated files are 100% HIPAA-compliant.||Yes|
|Backward Compatibility – Will new versions of the format support older versions?||100%||
No, based on past history.
With Additional Database Module
With the optional Redix Database Module, data stored in the Redix internal format can be written to an ODBC-compliant database or generated from an ODBC-compliant database. Please refer to the Redix Database Module for more information.
The RMAP Module includes maps for each HIPAA transaction. The maps are divided into two categories: HIPAA to RMAP for users that receive HIPAA files, and RMAP to HIPAA for users that submit HIPAA files.
