Ventiv enters into strategic partnership with Aerie EDI Group
Ventiv Technology has today announced a strategic partnership with Aerie EDI Group. Through this partnership, Ventiv customers using the Ventiv Claims core-administration system will have fully integrated, seamless access to the Aerie Data Transformer data translation service.
Aerie Data Transformer will support Ventiv Claims clients in meeting state-mandated workers’ compensation electronic data interchange (EDI) requirements for XML reporting. As a growing number of states require first report of injury (FROI) and subsequent report of injury (SROI) reporting in XML formats, Ventiv Claims customers will be able to meet those requirements with minimal disruption to their existing state-reporting workflows.
Ventiv Claims already includes a fully embedded EDI reporting solution that supports EDI in all jurisdictions where applicable Through the partnership with Aerie EDI Group, the Ventiv Claims EDI tool will offer Ventiv Claims customers a seamless process for the additional conversion of flat-file-formatted data files into XML format.
Stephen Thomas, Ventiv Technology Vice President, Product Management said,
“More and more states are mandating EDI reporting, migrating to the IAIABC Release 3.1 format, and introducing new formatting options including XML. Ventiv Claims customers want solutions that meet each state’s unique requirements using consistent approaches and solutions. The ability to integrate Aerie Data Transformer into Ventiv Claims allows our clients to keep processing consistent, while meeting state requirements. This new integration allows Ventiv to ensure a complete reporting solution without forcing clients to utilize vendors outside of Ventiv Claims for XML reporting.”
Aerie EDI Group President Shawn Maloney added,
“Ventiv’s hosting of the Aerie Data Transformer solution offers their clients an integrated approach to EDI as part of the Ventiv Claims solution. We are pleased that Aerie Data Transformer will ensure Ventiv has a secure, seamless EDI solution for XML reporting. Aerie EDI Group enables companies to take control of their EDI through a toolset approach to edits, timeliness reporting, data translation, and delivery services, which eliminates security issues when data is sent to or housed by third-parties.”
