I have received the UHC Companion Guide, Gap Analysis, etc.
Right at the beginning is an issue which has ramifications.
The ISA has been expanded by one field. That field has been inserted between the old ISA10 (Interchange Time) and the old ISA11 (Interchange Control Version Number). The new ISA11 field is Repetition Separator.
There are now 16 ISA fields not 15.
My guess this blows the released procs that build and remove the ISA as they might be based on 15 ISA fields.
Moreover, looking at the X12 Configurator there are already Data Elements from I16 through I64. For one to add the new I11 might mean making a lot of changes.
Now the question is will HealthVision provide an update to the X12 configuration to include 5010 AND will there be a new set of envelope procs that can be used with pre 5010 and 5010?
Anyone from HealthVision listening?
This is critical for us to know how to quote how long our work will take.
Of course, we can make modifications to the procs ourselves, but those will then not be supported I suspect and when the HealthVision updated procs are released there could be some retrenching required.
I will post more observations on the thread I started regarding UHC 278 project as I come across them.
I do not think this is a trivial issue.
