Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)

STERIS is providing a fast, reliable and cost-effective way to conduct business transactions with our customers. Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) is the computer-to-computer exchange of business documents in standardized formats. Common transactions such as purchase orders, invoices, and advance ship notices can be transmitted and received electronically between two Trading Partners with minimal human intervention.

EDI is being used throughout the healthcare industry to dramatically reduce costs in supply chain management. Some of the direct benefits of EDI are:

  • Administrative cost reduction
  • Improved inventory control and cash management
  • More accurate and accelerated processing of data
  • Reduced operating costs and processing delays

STERIS Corporation's EDI initiative supports the following primary ASC X12 Transactions for the 004010 ANSI X12 version. Additional strategic business transaction sets and versions can be supported by contacting the STERIS EDI liaison by e-mail or phone at 800.548.4873, ext. 27235.

The EDI guidelines listed above serve as an aid to Trading Partners implementing EDI with STERIS. They are primarily intended for those responsible for the technical components of the implementation. STERIS will also work with Trading Partner Guidelines to ensure the business data required by both Partners is accurate, compliant, and mutually beneficial to our trading relationship.
