VINAH Manager

VINAH Manager

Get the product that works the best. Used by Barwon Health and Alfred Health, VINAH Manager gives you complete automated control over submissions and responses. Returned reports allow you to drill down into errors, viewing the original HL7 and the raw returned XML for the affected message and viewing the submission history of the relevant contact, patient, episode or referral. The advanced submission engine can limit submissions to single files so you don’t clog the portal on others.

During the cross over to new VINAH versions, two versions can be supported in parallel sending two separate files, giving you time to test compliance with the latest version while still cleaning up data from the previous. Our product is superior, and our support enables agile response to fix data and system issues.
