Describes the process of summarizing acknowledgement messages (ACKs) in aggregate reports produced by IIS, EHRs and third-parties. ACKs are most helpful when they are summarized, reviewed and acted upon. The information contained within acknowledgment reports can assist healthcare providers and administrators in knowing what happens to patient data after it is sent to an IIS. Comparing reports over time enables users to examine error trends and confirm error reductions.
