The Dell Boomi AtomSphere provides users with the ability to create and configure trading partners for EDI transactions. Users can create trading partners to be used with the X12 Interchange format.
The X12 Interchange Format is a standard used for the sending and receiving of EDI Software files, it allows us to define different pieces of information about the file and communicate information about what is expected of the file between the respective trading partners. It uses the ISA and GS segment definition headers within sent EDI messages to set this information.
This post will cover how to create a basic X12 Trading Partner and the different configuration options available for them.
First we can create our trading partner by creating a new component and selecting “Trading Partner”, we can configure items such as the name and whether or not this is our company or…
You might have seen our post last week, Poll Results Part I: Microsoft Healthcare Bot Webinar: Enabling and Enhancing Patient Engagement.
If you have, I’m sure you’re absolutely chomping at the bit to find out how people answered the question at the end of the event. Well, the answer options differ a bit based on the use-cases from Quest Diagnostics and Aurora Health Care.
This poll occurred after the presentation from Microsoft Health Care’s Adam Walker, and Tallan’s own Matt Kruczek. Adam spent time on the details the team focused on to ensure the Bot would be compliant and useful for the healthcare community (to include a built-in understanding of medical language). While Matt elaborated on 3 of the pilot programs. One assists with triaging and symptom checking patients, one focuses on follow-up and discharge plan adherence, and the other centers on…
Earlier this month, we partnered with Microsoft and hosted a live webinar focused on the new Healthcare Bot platform. The Product Lead from Microsoft Healthcare lent his time to Tallan to speak to the production of the framework for this Chatbot, while Tallan’s AI team discussed 3 cases where this Bot is already being used to benefit patient engagement.
In short, this Healthcare Bot Framework, as opposed to Microsoft’s traditional Bot Framework, was specifically created with Healthcare compliance laws in mind, and an understanding of “healthcare intents by leveraging built-in language models tuned to medical terminology.”
Because Conversational AI is still very much making a name for itself as a mainstream tool, we polled our audience at the beginning of the webinar, and the end.
The first question was focused on patient engagement challenges, specifically what they face at their organizations. Our audience…
In this blog we provide instructions on downloading a free CMS-1500 form. Since we’ll be using the Claim Form Editor Web-App on X12 Hero the CMS form is enhanced by our EDI validation software. X12 Hero offers a SaaS subscription for access to a full collection of healthcare EDI and medical billing web-apps. With this 1500 form we can easily enter claims and check completed claims for entry errors. We’ve found that pre-validating your claims in X12 Hero results in an 80% or better first pass acceptance rate. We’ll discuss how to resolve these errors that could otherwise result in a denied claim. The application also has the capability to convert CMS 1500 forms to EDI 837p files for submission. This blog gives simple steps for you to get started and improve your medical billing efficiency.
How to Use the Fillable…
It’s not often that you can get some of the brightest minds in an industry in the same room together to discuss trends and opportunities in the market. This past March, Tallan was able to do just that and this coming September, we’ll be doing the same thing. Boston is one of the top regions if not THE top region in the country focused on Pharma, BioTech, and Medical Device Manufacturing. The health of this industry and the proximity to Tallan’s headquarters is a stroke of luck. However, we made our own luck through our partnership with one such company, Abiomed.
Abiomed is a ‘leading provider of medical devices that provide circulatory support.’ The brilliant minds on their team developed a solution to monitor the health of their devices, and report necessary findings to the individuals working in hospitals who care…
Last week, a contingent from Tallan attended Microsoft Inspire. This conference brings together the entire Microsoft Partner Network. This network crosses borders, oceans, and mountain tops and what a sight it was. About 40,000 people gathered in “Hot Vegas” as they have aptly begun to refer to Las Vegas as, for 5 days of meetings, networking opportunities, Key Note speeches from Microsoft leadership – to include CEO, Satya Nadella himself, and even a concert to top it all off.
We learned a lot. We learned about Microsoft’s goals and priorities for their next fiscal year. We learned about opportunities we have and can use to our advantage, being a member of the Partner Network. Most importantly, we fostered and made new relationships with individuals across the country. A group who we can and will continue to align and partner with as…
What Are Advanced Persistent Threats?
Advanced Persistent Threats (also known as APTs) are prolonged targeted cyberattacks. Such attacks are carried out by a well-funded (typically state-sponsored) group of highly skilled hackers who have high aspirations. Typically, APTs involve the creation of custom attacks that specifically target the victim’s network/machine. APTs primarily target government agencies, defense contractors, manufacturers of products, vendors, and partners of a primary target, and companies with intellectual property. The Stuxnet worm is a good example of such an attack. It is believed to have been created by the NSA, CIA, and Israeli intelligence. It was discovered in 2010 and was responsible for destroying several centrifuges at Iran’s Natanz uranium enrichment facility. The worm would search infected computers for signs of Siemens Step 7 software (used on industrial computers serving as PLCs), if found, it would update its code…
Augmented reality (AR) is the experience of having digital information applied to real-world environments. Unlike virtual reality (VR), which replaces our environment with a virtual world, the goal of AR is to enhance how we experience the real world. To achieve this, a device with a processor must retrieve input from many sources, such as cameras, GPS systems, and accelerometers. The most prominent AR devices for consumers are mobile phones and tablets, but there are also several companies developing monitors, smart glasses, and projectors for use with AR.
The list of use cases for AR is constantly growing as more companies invest in it. Here are some of the industries that AR developers are striving to improve today.
Both brick and mortar stores and e-commerce websites can reap the benefits of AR technologies by providing customers with more information about their products….
Before you start reading, write down (or mentally note) two things: 1) what is one of the pains you face on a daily, weekly, monthly, or some recurring basis? And 2) what is a pain point that your BOSS (or your boss’s boss) faces in the same way?
(No, seriously – write it down… 😉)
Alright – now it’s our turn. Here are some pain points that we’ve encountered with our partners in the mortgage lending space:
Pre-approved buyers no-showing up to appointments
Documents are often hard copy and must be tended to in person
Too much time passes by between interactions with customers
Your online customer-facing resources leave much to be desired
Your internal go-to-market activities are too slow
Customers have a hard time identifying the right loan/product for them
Closing processes take too much time (for both you and your customers)
Non-commissioned internal resources lack the incentive…
The key to a successful provider/patient relationship in healthcare is patient engagement. Recently, hospitals and healthcare companies have expanded their efforts toward patient engagement in the form of Artificial Intelligence or AI. Chatbots are being used to improve the triage process, patient discharge planning, and follow-up.
The practice of utilizing the ER for both emergent and non-emergent conditions has become the primary driver for overcrowding and longer wait times. On average, a visit to the emergency room can take anywhere from one to three hours. In an extreme situation, that visit can last even longer. As a result, patients requiring immediate medical attention are choosing to put themselves at risk for future complications by avoiding the ER altogether. In an attempt to reduce inappropriate use of the ER, hospitals are deploying Health chatbots as a means for patients to triage or…
