Concerns over the healthcare industry's readiness for the May 23, 2007 NPI compliance date are high. Only about 20% of the providers have obtained their NPIs, while even fewer have communicated them to their trading partners. The WEDI NPI Industry Forum IV presents the views of industry experts on areas of major concern, including the national compliance landscape, enumeration, outreach strategies, dissemination, information exchange, and industry readiness.
