The eiPortal addresses every aspect of customer implementation from the distribution of interface requirements and the associated files to automated testing and validation of messages and simulated responses to inbound messages.

The eiPortal combines a rich, intuitive, web-based GUI with a cloud app that provides your customers with everything they need to configure, test and validate interfaces to your organization's system including simulated responses to inbound messages.

With eiPortal your staff:

  • No longer needs to individually send customers your implementation specifications and files. An online repository provides everything required to configure an interface to your system. Simply publish these to the eiPortal once, send customers the URL and you’re done.
  • No longer needs to individually desk-check sample data payloads. Automated validation replaces time-intensive and tedious desk checking by your staff.
  • No longer needs to field customer questions by email and phone. The eiPortal provides actionable error messages that tell your customers not just that a problem occurred, but also how to fix it.
  • No longer needs to spend hours tracking down why a customer’s message failed a test. The eiPortal displays a customer self-service log of messages that replaces manual troubleshooting by your staff.
  • No longer needs to hand-hold customers through implementations.

The eiPortal is fully automated to provide self-service integration with Help screens and Tutorials offering assistance every step of the way.

6 Easy Steps to Getting Your
Customers Implemented Via the eiPortal

eiPortal Registration Screen

Step 1. Customer Registers on Your eiPortal
Provide your customer with the URL to your eiPortal where they fill out a simple form, register and login. A rich, graphical user interface makes the eiPortal easy to use. Help screens get them on their way fast. Tutorials walk them through using the eiPortal. A video demo shows them the eiPortal, step-by-step.

eiPortal Download Screen

2. Customer Downloads Your Implementation Materials

The “Documentation” tab provides customers with a web repository that includes everything they need to interface with your system – sample files, implementation guides, interface templates and any other documentation you wish to provide, along with your organization’s contact information. Note: Publishing your organization's materials on the eiPortal is easy. An intuitive Wizard gets your materials up in minutes and it's all perfectly organized.)

eiPortal Configure Screen

3. Customer Configures the Interface to Your System

Using the downloaded materials, the customer configures the interface using their existing integration tools, or optionally, PilotFish’s eiConsole for Healthcare graphical interface engine IDE. (Shown above the eiConsole’s graphical, drag & drop Data Mapper.)

eiPortal Send Message Screen

4. Customer Tests Their Message(s) Automatically

Once your customer has configured their interface they return to your eiPortal. The “Send Message” tab presents them with the option to copy and paste their sample message or to select a file for testing. They click “Send Message” to initiate automated testing.

eiPortal Validation screen

5. Customer Reviews Validation Results

The “Validation" tab presents a filterable/sortable list of every message they have sent. Messages with a green checkmark have passed validation rules or defined tests. Messages with a red "X" have failed. Messages can be expanded
to review their contents and to view specific validation errors. Actionable error responses tell your customers how to fix a problem, not just that one occurred.

Within VALIDATION the ACTIONS tab provides emulation of requests and responses so customers can test not only the messages they create,
but those their systems must be able to consume.

They continue to tweak and test until all validation rules are passed.

eiPortal Ready to Deploy Screen

6. Customer Deploys the Interface

When satisfied with their self-testing (all validation results show green check marks) your customer contacts your technical representative for final integration
testing and production deployment.
