ExIS Update

February/March 2013
VTrckS Connection Newsletter

Graph showing the relationship between ExIS and VTrckS data exchange

As of March 4, 32 ExIS awardees have deployed to VTrckS. Of these 32 awardees, 25 upload inventory and order data from their ExIS to VTrckS. Seven awardees will enter orders on behalf of their providers until their ExIS interfaces are complete.

Update! ExIS Order Line Numbers in VTrckS

We recently found that ExIS Order Line Numbers greater than 899,999 cause issues with shipment data. After exploring a number of alternative approaches, we believe that the best way to proceed is to restrict the values for ExIS Order Line Number and we will update the ExIS specification document accordingly.

The specification now defines ExIS Order Line Number as follows: screen capture of current exis line item

The specification will be updated as follows:screen capture of updated exis line item

We will post the updated specification document to the Training Library when it becomes available.


If you have questions about interfacing your ExIS with VTrckS, there are several ways you can get help.

  • POB Project Officer — for questions regarding schedules and deliverables
  • Monthly ExIS Calls — to discuss technical questions with all ExIS awardees; scheduled for the fourth Tuesday of each month at 3:00 p.m. ET. The next ExIS monthly call will be on April 23, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
  • VTrckS ExIS Discussion on Epi-X Forum — to find answers and ask questions related to your ExIS implementation
  • — to request an invitation to the monthly ExIS calls or access to the VTrckS ExIS discussion

 Upcoming VTrckS Refresher Training!

This summer, once all awardees have deployed to VTrckS, the VTrckS Training team will conduct refresher courses, offering tips and tricks to help you better utilize functionality within VTrckS.

Look for more information about these refresher training courses in the next couple of months as deployment wraps-up.

If you have specific topics of interest you would like to have addressed in these refresher courses, please submit your topic requests to the Contact Center.
