Powerful EDI tool for Importing and exporting files


What is SHMS ESI

SHMS ESI™ (External System Interfaces) is our powerful EDI tool that takes the complexity out of the task of importing and exporting files of virtually any format. With an open framework that provides capabilities beyond the range of other products, SHMS ESI™ supports files in fixed-width, delimited, and XML formats and can be used to import HIPAA EDI formats.

  • Supports virtually any text file format, providing a single tool for all EDI needs
  • Saves file operations into tasks and jobs for ease of management
  • Powerful transformations and mappings to and from any system’s data set
  • All files are logged and archived for retrieval later
  • Email contacts can be defined to be notified when a job completes based on the job’s status. This allows users to be made aware of issues during the processing of the job or to notify vendors that a new file is available.
