Translate from xml document to 837D format
Currently xml is translated into a format
that would print on a pre-printed claim form
using a dot-matrix printer ...
so we have something like:
(characters are placed in specific column
ranges, form is exactly 67 lines long)
patient name office name
patient address ofice address
city state zip city state zip
x x x
blue cross address
city state zip
02/01/2009 D1045 80.00
02/01/2009 D1046 90.00
5405 x x
Now in 837D has odd codes that prepend and
append each field value...
(example - i have made up the codes that
prepend and append the fields below as
and example. The spec is 200 pages)
and this list goes on and on
Now my current developer tells me that
according the the value of the field,
that the code may change. This makes it
more difficult to program.
So I am looking for someone with experience
in the 837D world.
