Customers’ Solutions: Charge Pre-Processor

A large East Coast health care network came to Catch Data Systems with a novel challenge. The client was going to be receiving several unique feeds from current and new software vendors that contained charge data that needed to be posted into TES. Instead of purchasing several GE charge interfaces, the client was seeking a way to purchase a single interface that read these different files and converted them into a single HL7 format that feeds the GE Standard TES charge interface.

After analyzing the situation, we recognized that this project was perfect for our Charge Pre-Processor, which allows us to easily set up translations for multiple feeds, convert them to HL7 and build one combined file or individual files depending on the requirements of the client. After several meetings with the client, we came up with a joint plan to first implement the current charge feed and then bring new systems online as they came up one-by-one.

As a result, the client now has an application that centralizes and organizes multiple feeds for different types of data layouts and then translates those formats into a single HL7 format that the new TES charge interface will accept. While the utility could also feed the client’s other interfaces that are up and running, it was decided to create a more standardized interface for all new feeds.

The client benefited from the project through reduced work loads for future translations now that the first is mapped and operational, as well as by having centralized file feeds and an UI that provides the status of what has been processed and what hasn’t. But perhaps most important benefit of all was the significant savings they experienced in only having to purchase a single GE TES charge interface instead of multiple interfaces.
