Announcement of new CreditRequest430, CreditResponse430 XML standards and COM modules...

Monday, 9 May 2011
The Forum Datenaustausch has endorsed new XML standards and print templates on its meeting of 3rd February 2011.
These standards are
  • generalCreditRequest_430.xsd
  • generalCreditResponse_430.xsd
The standards have been published now and become productive on 1st January 2012
What does that mean?
  • generalCreditRequest_430.xsd and generalCreditResponse_430.xsd
    This is the new credit request/response system for all roles and places. The schemas cover the credit and cost estimate processes.
    By using the processing attribute storno the cancel process is represented as well - all in one standard.
    These standards are the replacement for all older credit standards generalCredit410 and hospitalCredit410, respecively.
Sumex1 coverage...
Both new standards are covered by a corresponding Sumex1 COM module, namely
Whereas the XML standards and print templates are approved the interfaces of these COM modules are not yet!
All V4.3 COM modules are kept on a beta1 level up to the beginning of August.

All developers are very welcomed to submit bugs, criticism, and suggestions regarding the interface and their methods.

To get a starting point study the API documentation. Especially pay attention to the documents on the very first
page under the label «Important information about the usage and handling of the module».

Major changes of the generalCredit COM modules to previous versions

  • All credit activities (general and hospital) are covered by an all-in-one COM module (and XML standard that is)
  • Credit requests to insurances and to cantonal surgeons are both covered
  • Optional signature and encryption
  • Unbundling of XML generation and transport as the COM modules do the first but not the latter
  • Request and Result interfaces are symmetric, previously generated XML files are re-loadable
