HL7 Messages furnishes files for the usage with Jaa CAPS applications in the Java syntax format. HL7 Messages are also known as Message Library or Object Type definition (OTD) Library.
It is a collection of pre-built message structures for industry-standard format.
This is designed to work concurrently with the Sun Adapter for TCP/IP HL7 to support you to set up and maintain a well-organized and dependable HL7 Messaging system.
An HL7 message or transaction has several components in a pre-determined sequence. An HL7 message is a unit of data exchanged between systems. Each message has a message type that establishes its purpose.
A field is a string of characters. When fields are exchanged, they are sent as “character strings”. HL7 data fields on the unnoticed areas may take on the null value. The null value transmitted as 2 double quote marks (“”), is different from excluding an optional data field.
The difference emerges when the contents of a message are used to update a record in a database rather than create a new one.
Field escape sequences in text differ depending on the type of field.
HL7 Messages are put into transaction sets based on the type or purpose.
An ADT message is used to exchange patient admission, transfer, demographic, and discharge information. The ADT transaction set incorporates messages that transmit instances, portions, or updates of this data required to the participating healthcare system.
