That compares with a 75 percent rate of payers worried about provider progress in a survey taken during the third quarter of 2010. Gantry Group, a Concord, Mass.-based market research firm, is conducting the surveys for The TriZetto Group, a Greenwood Village, Colo.-based payer software vendor. Other results of the fifth survey, completed in February 2011, include:
* As of February with 11 months until the HIPAA 5010 transactions deadline, 47 percent of surveyed payers have built or mapped 4010 to 5010 files;
* Only 9 percent of surveyed payers have completed 5010 trading partner testing; and
* Health insurers increasingly are more receptive to receiving ICD-10 assistance from vendors with infrastructure modifications, strategic planning, care management upgrades and testing.
