HIPAA 5010 834 File Creation


  • Hi, I am basically trying to create an HIPAA 834 file from scratch. I have seen quite a few posts about using BizTalk Server for this but BizTalk is something I am not familiar with at all, and frankly I see it as an overkill using a giant to kill a fly. I'm wondering if anyone has tried creating the file using T-SQL. I haven't seen anything related to it.

    Also, these HIPAA standards seem a bit overwhelming and confusing, that's why I'm looking for opinions on here on which way to go since I can't understand the 834 guides 100%. If anyone knows of any good sources to read and learn how these loops, segments, etc work, please share.

    Thanks in advance.
