The National Insurance Administration (formerly called Trygdeetaten) is the largest institution under the Norwegian Directorate of Labour and Welfare (NAV) and is responsible for healthcare, old age and disability pensions, and unemployment benefits. NAV initiated a project to replace the proprietary EDI-based communications e-health infrastructure it used to connect to its business partners with one based on open standards.
NAV implemented the Xenos terminalONE Transport software to provide reliable, secure internet based exchange of prescription and reimbursement information between the NIA organisation and 3,000 doctors' offices, pharmacies and hospital organisations. To date it has transported millions of ebXML messages corresponding to transactions totalling well over 10 billion Norwegian Kroner (equivalent to 1.2 billion Euro, or 1.5 billion USD) making it one of the largest ebXML implementations in the world.
Xenos terminalONE is a high volume structured data transformation, intelligent routing and standards-based transactional gateway software suite that expedites business transactions over the Internet. NAV selected Xenos terminalONE Transport because of its full support of the ebXML 2.0 OASIS Messaging Service, including XML digital signatures and encryption, in conjunction with Public Key Infrastructure for message authentication, integrity, confidentiality and non-repudiation
