816 Organizational Relationships

Functional Group OR

This Draft Standard for Trial Use contains the format and establishes the data contents of the Organizational Relationships Transaction Set (816) for use within the context of an Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) environment. This transaction set can be used to transmit pertinent information about a parent organization, its members and the relationship of a member to another member, and/or to the parent organization. A parent organization could be an association, a multi-hospital system, a chain of retail stores, a holding company, etc. This transaction set can be used to convey the identity and relationship of members to a parent organization; identify eligibility to purchase under the terms and conditions negotiated by a parent organization on behalf of its members; and to update application databases.
