If you're using a BizTalk solution for any X12N EDI transactions, how well has its support for 270/271, 276/277 etc. worked for 4010 and/or 5010?

Out of the box, BizTalk can support 4010 and 5010 document parsing/disassembly for several transaction sets. Schemas are provided for 270/271, 276/277, 278, 820, 834, 835, and 837P/I/D formats.

In our organization we use BizTalk to process requests for nearly all of those transactions mentioned above. Most transactions are batched. We also published a web service that handles 270/271 request/response in real-time.

Keep in mind that BizTalk is a framework for building applications. Out of the box it doesn't really do much of anything useful. You have to build all of your business logic.

Technically schemas are provided for all X12 transactions, just in a different area than the Healthcare specific transactions. It also supports all of the base messaging constructs such as 997 & 999. – TRayburn Oct 27 '11 at 12:55
