Proven EDI Claims Processing for Property & Casualty Insurers
and Health Payers
Processing and working with EDI claims poses many challenges for Property & Casualty Insurers and Health Payers. X12 EDI has a complex data structure and each EDI message, such as healthcare claims contain intricate data structures with numerous data elements and codes. The EDI 837 transaction set can include hundreds of data elements. ICD-10 diagnosis and procedure codes consist of tens of thousands of individual codes and descriptors. Healthcare claims processing typically involves hundreds to thousands of data elements and codes.
Mapping these data structures to the appropriate EDI format (such as X12) can be complex and time-consuming. Mapping requires the careful handling of data elements, segments and loops. Inconsistent or incorrect mapping can lead to data errors or rejection of claims. Another challenge is validating the accuracy, completeness and consistency of claims data required for successful processing. Payers must comply with Industry Standards such as HIPAA, X12 or other regional regulatory frameworks. The right EDI solution is essential for achieving efficiency, accuracy and compliance in your claims management or health claims processes.

EDI Data Mapping & Transformation
PilotFish’s robust data mapping capabilities give insurers and payers a significant advantage in their claims processing operations. With a user-friendly interface and flexible data mapping rules, PilotFish empowers insurers and payers to seamlessly transform and map data elements between internal and the X12 EDI formats. PilotFish’s exclusive 3-pane data mapper allows for intuitive visual drag & drop mapping, thus enabling precise specification of transformations, conversions and value lookups.
The PilotFish solution offers an EDI parser that supports the parsing, mapping and translating of various code sets and terminologies commonly used in insurance EDI claims automation. This ensures accurate conversion between proprietary and standard code sets. With the ability to handle hierarchical data structures, enrich data from multiple sources and perform data validation and error handling, PilotFish empowers insurers and payers to achieve accurate, compliant and efficient claims processing.
- Flexible Data Mapping: PilotFish provides a user-friendly interface that enables insurers or payers to define and configure complex data mapping rules. These rules allow for the transformation and mapping of data elements between internal formats (proprietary formats or database structures) and the X12 EDI format (such as EDI 837 for claims). PilotFish’s exclusive 3-pane data mapper allows users to visually drag & drop map source data elements to their corresponding target X12 elements, specifying transformations, conversions or value lookups as needed.
- Built-in Transformation Functions: PilotFish’s Data Mapper offers a comprehensive library via a palette of XSLT transformation features and functions, including mathematical calculations, string manipulation, date formatting, conditional logic and more. These functions can be applied within the data mapping rules to transform and manipulate the data during the mapping process.
