TVA Provides Guidance on State Compliance Approaches

There are approximately two dozen states that had previously utilized the vendor designed NTDS XML format as a basis for their state compliance submission. The vendors have continued this format under a new name (The ITDX). Several leading vendors have built “ITDX Inside” in all of their registry products to form a basis for national compliance, as well as state compliance for those applicable states.

If states allow a state specific ITDX (ST-ITDX) as an allowable method for data submission, then a substantial amount of work and potential costs can be eliminated from hospitals, hospital vendors and state vendors. This streamlined approach (Approach 1) is contrasted with the alternative (Approach 2) of states developing and supporting a one-off NTDS XML format.
