Top  Previous  Next

Once you have created your tables and tested connection and table names, you can select which fields to export. The HIPAA Enrollment Master can export most of the elements in an 834 file.

Follow the instructions below.

1. Select Data Export arrow Connection and Data Fields in the main menu.

The "Connection and Data Fields" menu

2. You will be confronted with the following screen where you can set up the database connection and enter the names of the database tables.

The "Database and Field Export" window

3. Choose the fields to be exported by selecting checkboxes in front of the fields.

Tip: We recommend selecting all fields. This will ensure that the individual enrollment record can be re-created and displayed or the proper EDI file can be created from the database.

Tip: Make sure that you have that field in the database. Otherwise a database error will occur.

Tip: Sometimes it might be necessary to rename a field or fields. Some legacy databases want upper case only or lower case only field names. The HIPAA Enrollment Master allows you to rename any field in any table. Click twice (not double-click) on a field to enter to the "Edit" mode.
