This chart and timeline show the total costs of implementing a networkto exchange medical claims data electronically, from the perspective of a health care provider. The example is based on a midsize hospital that must integrate connectivity, routingand data-translation software with its legacy infrastructure and that must be able to accept and output HIPAA-compliant data. This 325-bed hospital employs 3,300 staff and supports 18,000in-patient admissions per year. Project planners may regard these project tasks and line-itemcosts as representative of systems of this size and scope, but should tailor the line items, project tasks and cost estimates to meet their own requirements.
