Author, test, publish accurate specifications

Manage partner exchanges and reduce operating costs with guidelines, transaction specifications, and maps.


Data is the lifeline of every organization; it offers value and new opportunities, but also carries risks. How we collect, validate and process growing amounts of data is driving many digital modernization initiatives. The consequences of poorly designed specifications can be severe and costly to resolve. Building accurate and precise data connections that enforce business policy and protect mission critical systems from failure, require a professional grade toolkit.

  • Quickly perform gap analysis and automate migration between guideline versions.
  • Reverse engineer specifications from 3rd party systems.
  • Use functions, query databases and invoke programs to enrich messages.

Ensure data governance and validation

Reduce costs by validating data elements, translating code sets and ensuring data quality before submission to enterprise applications.

  • Correlation tables to provide runtime validation/transformation between code sets.
  • Validate against more than 60 industry data sets and manage guideline versions.
  • Eliminate the need for external editors and increase productivity by enabling browsing.
  • De-identify data to protect PHI and comply with HIPAA privacy and security guidelines.

Partner specifications and asset management

Rapidly build communities, accelerate onboarding and improve partner satisfaction.

  • Store guidelines, maps, test data and documentation in a common project repository.
