EDICOMNet connects with key health services in Germany and Austria


EDICOM is extending connectivity of the value added network EDICOMNet for health sector clients in Europe. This is made possible through the interoperability agreement reached with HBS (Health Business Solution), a B2B platform for the healthcare sector with a strong presence in Germany and Austria.

HBS (Health Business Solution) is a technology services platform for business communications and logistics already well established in northern Europe, particularly in Germany and Austria.

Among its clients are some of the largest hospitals and health services in the northern European region, which it provides with an electronic system for the exchange of business documents.

In this context, the agreement reached allows the key laboratories whose EDI services are provided by EDICOM to connect quickly and safely with the most important hospitals in Europe. This way, the main beneficiaries of this recent collaboration between these two EDI service companies will be the thousands of health sector users exchanging electronic documents on a daily basis.

With this important agreement to further extend EDI technology communications in the European health sector, EDICOM reinforces its position as one of the most widely established providers of EDI solutions and services providers on the continent.

Interoperability agreement framework

The agreement signed between EDICOMNet (EDICOM’s value added network) and HBS Centre (Health Business Solution GmbH network) provides for opening of the connection mechanisms necessary for both value added networks to exchange data in structured format, at the request of either party.

Communication between the two EDI infrastructures takes place through gateways implementing the AS2 (Applicability Statement) communication protocol. Connections via AS2 servers are communications with high-level security, since they use digital certificates to identify the servers interchanging the data and apply coding techniques to encrypt the commercial transactions exchanged between the platforms.

The agreement is open and allows data interchange through any type of documents in electronic format. In line with the particular features and working practices in the European health sector, the business communication flow is focused on the exchange of:

• Purchase Orders

• Despatch Advices

• Electronic Invoices

Global interoperability

EDICOMNet is EDICOM’s value added network, a powerful communications infrastructure where our more than 10,000 clients exchange over 300 million business transactions annually.

It is one of the world's most powerful private networks, with a high degree of interoperability with leading industry networks. In this global spirit of service, we have consolidated this significant interoperability agreement with HBS, which marks an important breakthrough in B2B communications between major health sector stakeholders and highlights the good relations between the companies in reaching agreements that benefit their clients.

With this dedication to service, EDICOM maintains more than 40 interconnections with some of the major VANs worldwide, ensuring global interoperability with virtually any trading partner.
