What is Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)?

Electronic data interchange, better known as EDI, is a computer-to-computer based data exchange system that equips businesses with a fast, accurate, and reliable exchange of data between computer systems.  Benefits of using an EDI system include but are not limited to: streamlined transactions, increased productivity, and reduced manual data entry errors.  Businesses are using EDI in place of paper-based data exchange to replace middlemen such as postal mail, fax machines, and emails. 

EDI applies to the Drug Supply Chain Security Act because it is the main method of data exchange between trading partners.
