CareBridge EDI Service

CareBridge manages and supports EDI as a common point of contact between you, your applications, and your trading partners. Using IBM's Information Exchange, CareBridge receives transactions and documents from you and your trading partners on its network, routes them to the targeted recipients, and stores the data for retrieval.

This store-and-retrieve approach yields many advantages. First, it uses a sophisticated electronic mailbox that can help simplify communication between disparate systems. Second, you can send and receive at your convenience without any concern for time constraints and scheduling difficulties. This proves efficient when communicating with business partners across multiple time zones.
