RoundtableScott L.

Davita

  • No concerns

FKC

  • Will review errors for legitimacy. No other concerns at the moment.

DCI

  • Submission has started. Review in progress.  Will submit at least 3 more times.

NRAA

  • Cross walking errors.  Will update next week when they can resume testing.


Davita not looking for a final plan regarding submissions, but rather a good discussion about how we should approach it.


Open  DiscussionYvette Brown
  • Plan for submission of 09/20 -12/20 clinical data
    • Update the prod preview so that it matches productions
    • Plan to do some load testing and determine the baseline.
    • Plan to document our load testing results and to make some recommendations all of that will be occurring in this iteration.

Davita expressed concerned about latency in the Pre-Prod environment and if CMS required any assistance with regard to load testing.

NRAA asked is there a mechanism for a retry if a submission fails.  Kelly L, responded yes, there is a retry mechanism on Production.

    • Right now, no assistance is required and will discover more during this iteration.
  • Errors/Warnings Code Listing (will cover on 6/18)

Next meeting scheduled for  


  • Next EDI Testing Meeting
