The HIPAA EDI Viewer /Editor can be used to display and edit the contents of an EDI file
that contains transaction sets that are mandated for use under HIPAA.
The structure is designed from the ASC X12N Version 004010 implementation
guides with the Addenda applied. Pre-addenda files can be displayed but will
be subject to the addenda changes. Because of that, it is possible that some
pre-addenda files may not display correctly - this is due to the changes made
in the addenda and is not a limitation of the viewer. We are currently
implementing 005010 transactions segment editing into our viewer.
005010 files can be viewed, edited, and saved. However, the viewer
does not check the structure or syntax of any 005010 files. Any 005010 changes
as implemented are included and free to evaluate/use until 2015 Note:
The 005010 final upgrade prices will be determined if and when the new version is
available (delivery date has yet to be determined).
The HIPAA EDI Viewer/Editor is for use on one of the following Microsoft
operating systems (XP & Windows 7) with the most current Windows
