Outgoing interfaces refer to interfaces in which the EMR sends the message. Incoming interfaces refer to interfaces in which the EMR receives the message.

Incoming Financial Transactions read the specRead the technical specs

This HL7v2 interface is used to receive charges from external systems. These charges pass through the rules-based routing in the EMR to eventually be charged to the appropriate account (hospital billing, professional billing, or a different external system). Charges are subject to checks and can be routed to workqueues for further processing. Current integrations include...

Contract Management

Epic has a robust contract management system that can help track detailed expected reimbursement information for claims and detect appropriate variances. However, some organizations choose to maintain their contracts outside of Epic in third party systems. Epic’s extract framework can configure files to be sent to those systems, and an import file process can bring the expected reimbursement at the invoice level into Epic.

Predictive Dialer

Epic's extract framework provides flat files to external dialer systems for outgoing calls. Dialer systems can automatically launch the appropriate workflow screens in the EMR for follow-up staff once the patient is connected on the line. A standard import file provided by external systems can be used to bring back error codes such as bad phone numbers and route them to support staff for appropriate follow-up.

Statements and Letters

Epic natively supports rich-text formatting of statements, letters, and other billing correspondence. However, most organizations will use an external third party to provide mailing services for their statements. Some third parties provide both mailing and formatting services.

Credit Card and Bank Account Integration read the specRead the technical specs

Epic provides support for credit cards to be used with the EMR to pay copays, hospital and outpatient bills, and for medications. This integration is handled through credit card gateway systems, which send payment data to processing services that verify the payments with appropriate banks. The gateway then sends the verified payment information back to the EMR to post the payment. This integration is handled through the patient portal and patient kiosk software as well as in over-the-phone and billing-office use cases. Epic software for credit card processing follows the PA-DSS requirements in its development. Current integrations include...

Cash Deposit Information

Incoming files can be used to load information about bank deposits for help with cash reconciliation.

Account Notes and Billing Indicators

Epic's standard import file process allows organizations to associate notes from external systems with specific hospital or guarantor accounts. Billing indicators can be added to hospital accounts to drive automatic system actions or route accounts to workqueues for follow-up.

Credit Card and Check Scanning Device Integration read the specRead the technical specs

In addition to the Credit Card and Bank Account Integration specification, Epic provides separate and additional support for non-keyboard emulation credit card devices. This integration is handled through an interface between Epic and your gateway software. The gateway software integrates with the device and provides Epic with transaction results for the credit card payment. This integration is handled through the patient kiosk and by front desk personnel during check-in or check-out. This interface is supplemental to the generic credit card interface described above and should be implemented in addition to that interface if you want to provide support for EMV devices. Current integrations include...

Payment Status read the specRead the technical specs

The Payment Status web service is used alongside the Credit Card and Bank Account Integration and Credit Card and Check Scanning Device Integration. If 1) Epic sends a request to a gateway vendor for a credit card to be charged 2) the card gets charged and 3) Epic doesn’t get a response with the gateway’s approval message, the result is that we don’t post a payment transaction in Epic even though we’ve collected money from the patient. This web service allows Epic to tell the gateway to void the charge against the credit card, keeping Epic AR balanced against the gateway and bank. Current integrations include...
