Davinia Paxton

Fashion & Accessory Coordinator, Chloe & Dunhill

This course allowed a complete beginner in the world of EDI to feel comfortable and encouraged involvement and participation. From knowing nothing about EDI (yes I googled the acronym before the course) I left the course feeling like I was grasping the EDI concept, given the ability to understand the EDI process and history at 360 degree level. Michael is a phenomenal instructor, put my nerves to rest and ensured each of the class left with valuable EDI knowledge not just in general but also specific to our respective industries. I would recommend this course and the EDI Academy to all.

I have had to self teach myself EDI over the course of the past year and was so excited when I came across EDI Academy online.

The way that he presents the class and teaches is very easy to understand and follow. I am so thankful for everything I've gained from Michael's class and cannot wait to apply it to my day to day work in the future. Thank you Michael and EDI Academy!

A thoroughly enjoyable class- strange thing to say about a very technical training course! EDI is an area where most staff find themselves "thrown into" with little to no knowledge. It is a very intimidating and frustrating situation to be in. EDI academy understood this need for educating industries who use these transactions and broke elements down in a way that was specific to our industries focus and helped us understand REAL situations that occur. From the knowledge base, to the thoughtful interactions and engagement of our questions and concerns; this course was a top notch and I would highly recommend!

Owner, North Jersey Spine Group

EDI in health care is still an underutilized resource in the medical community. Its potential for increased efficiency, transparency, and cost control is currently receiving a great deal of attention. Any interested party in the health care arena who does not become proficient will rapidly lose market share and become obsolete.

Yvonne Clevenger

Sales Order Processing / EDI Manager, T3 Micro Inc.

This class was extremely helpful. As our company does not really have anyone with in-depth knowledge in regard to EDI it was great to finally be able to understand the data I had been struggling to understand on my own for years. Even though we use a 3rd party EDI provider I realized it is important to still understand how to interpret the raw data being sent to us. I highly recommend this course for any company using EDI even if they are not mapping in house.

I have attended many classes, and have had other coworkers attend them as well. Always top notch.

Jesseika Boyer

Logistics & Operations Coordinator, Amoena USA Corporation

I am happy I found EDI Academy. It was so difficult to find an EDI program where i could receive a certification for my current role in EDI. Their website is user friendly and very detailed. It has detailed information about the EDI courses offered. Michael is very knowledgeable & professional in EDI which helped a lot. The class material he provided was so easy to read and understand. Its broken down so simple that even someone who's never seen EDI would understand it ;). He made sure we understood the material before he moved on.

Michelle Gear

EDI Support, Experian Health

I started the class with a very "birdseye" view of EDI, I knew what the different messages were for and how to find the information I was looking for but not what they were named or how they were important. After the class I am now able to speak better as to where the information in the message is, what it is for, and why it is important.

Jennifer Milligan

Michael's breakdown of reading each type of X12 message (i.e. 270/271, 835) really allowed me to get a better understanding of how to decipher the data within these types of transactions.

I come from Supply Chain EDI. I can see the similarities between the structure of the documents and the vast differences in content and loops. Healthcare has its own set of terms: subscriber, provider, payer, ICD10, TR3, companion guide. It's a strange new world out there! I would recommend this class for anyone thinking of transitioning from Supply to Healthcare!

Tanya Williams

Lead Technical System Analyst, CareFirst BlueCross

Overall the class was an eye opener. It revealed that the edi file is standardized enough that it is transportable from one industry to another (Healthcare to Retail, etc.). The class puts the information into 'human' aspects to enforce the fact that this is simple communication at it's best when it comes to electronic data. It also helps to eliinate' the fear / intimidation that you can get when starting to work with these types of files. In addition, it assures you that active involvement with the files will support better understanding as you gain experience in looking at the files.
