Several integrations have requested that the eReferral Sender's billing identifier be included in the HL7 FHIR payload to facilitate their ability to receive referrals from new sending providers. Ocean will be adding this into the v0.10.0 and v0.11.1 FHIR payloads in an upcoming release. It will be sent in the 'Practitioner.identifier' property in the format of:
The billing ID is entered by the user into their user account or into the referral form at the time of sending. The availability and accuracy of the billing ID is the responsibility of the Ocean sender; Ocean does not have a means to validate it.
This is a non-breaking change, so it should not impact any existing implementations. If you have any questions or concerns, please use our request form to contact us.
