, the rules put into place national standards for eight types of electronic transactions, including claims submission, eligibility verification, referral authorizations, and coding for diagnoses. They will become effective 60 days after publication, and most healthcare organizations will have 24 months thereafter to comply. However, if privacy standards are delayed, a provision in the final transaction rules states that they can be suspended or revoked

Market research firms such as the Gartner Group and First Consulting Group have also launched new tools and related products designed to help organizations comply with the HIPAA rules.
