Cardinal Health extends a sincere thank you for the continued partnership with our Medical manufacturers. We will continue to be highly committed to driving optimal EDI utilization. As part of our recent Supplier Scorecard rollout which went into effect April 1, 2016, we’ve adjusted our standard EDI compliance policy to create enhanced transparency and collaboration.
“Core 4” – Key transactions required from our medical national brand supplier partners.
- EDI 850 – Purchase Order
- EDI 855 – Purchase Order Acknowledgement
- EDI 856 – Advanced Shipping Notice
- EDI 810 – Invoice
Additionally, we are excited to expand our EDI transaction base to include EDI 845 / Price Authorization & Status Updates over the next quarter. Utilizing this HIDA endorsed tool allows suppliers to advise Cardinal Health of customer contract changes, and significantly reduces the risks tied to manually keyed updates. Aimed at achieving the “perfect order,” embracing EDI 845 usage will helps reduce credit & rebills, chargeback discrepancies and invoice deductions due to pricing variances. A pilot project is underway to assist suppliers that are unable to send EDI 845 directly to Cardinal Health, with the assistance of SPS Commerce.
