HIPAA Pack Compliance Check – stop compliance when error threshold is reached.

IBM ITX HIPAA Compliance Check has a parameter that limits the number of Errors reported on the x12 999, but compliance continues to execute even when the 999 reporting limit has been reached.
The result is that Compliance can run for more than an hour while only a fraction of the errors are actually included in the 999.


Request; Enhance the HIPAA Compliance check to stopped searching for additional errors once the number of errors exceeds the parameter 997_Detail_Max="9999" (or add a new parameter)

What is your industry? Healthcare
How will this idea be used?

Reduce run time of the HIPAA Pack Compliance Check when we are going to reject the file anyway.
