Mary Lynn824 Acknowledgements

From the HL7 attachments Implementation guide, the highest priority is to add 824 error messages regarding conformance statements. An example is for Legal Authenticator. Providers claims are being denied for not having legal authenticator. This field is required per section 7 of the attachment guide, but C_CDA does not require it. Will suggest that Structured Documents help review the C-CDA guides for possible error messages to add for 824 transaction.

Open Floor
Several questions and comments regarding 824 acknowledgements. Sherry commended Mary Lynn on the work she has done. Rachel asked how to report back an error. Using the BDS segment in the 275 or Xpath statement. May also add to the BDS statement in the 824. There is a need for a companion guide for the 824 transaction. Durwin stated that the errors would need to be added to the ACP document and/or a WEDI white paper. Christol asked about MIME media type. Section 7 says can only have one media type per BDS, but can have multiple BDS segments.
