Looking for an ‘industry standard’ method of howto report the number of interfaces within our Organization back to the business. Ultimate goal is to develop a algorithm over the NetConfig data rather SMAT data as we do now.
How does your org define an interface when counting? What is discrete item that is located within the Net Config is used to determine it?
Currently our count is based on message type (ADT, ORD, ORU, MDM, RDS, Cont…) and service types (Rad, Pharm, Lab, MDOC, cont… ) of the transactions processed per month, calculated by SMAT data. This is variable by month depending on transaction activity. Previously we depended on spreadsheets that were not maintained consistently.
Our complex calculation is difficult to explain to the business and is difficult to compare data with other similar orgs. Would like to develop a new tally method that is easier to understand, is based on actual config data, but does not come up short when representing the size of our configuration.
Thanks for your input.
