What is Mirth Connect?

Mirth Connect is an open-source integration engine designed to facilitate
the exchange of health-related data between various healthcare systems and
applications. Mirth Connect acts as a middleware, enabling seamless interoperability and
communication between disparate systems by transforming, routing, and managing data

How Mirth Connect Works?

  • 1


    Mirth Connect operates based on channels, which define the flow and transformation of data. Each channel represents a specific integration task or workflow

  • 2


    Mirth Connect supports a wide range of connectors to interact with different systems & protocols. It includes connectors for various healthcare standards like HL7, DICOM, and IHE profiles, as well as general-purpose connectors like HTTP, TCP, and JDBC

  • 3

    Source & Destination

    Channels have a source connector and a destination connector. The source connector retrieves data from the source system or application, while the destination connector sends the transformed data to the desired destination

  • 4

    Data Transformation

    Mirth Connect provides a powerful and flexible transformation engine that allows you to manipulate & transform data as it flows through the channel. You can use a graphical interface to design custom transformations using JavaScript

  • 5

    Filters & Routing

    Mirth Connect allows you to set up filters and rules to route messages to different destinations based on specific criteria. This enables conditional routing of data, ensuring that messages are directed to the appropriate systems or processes

  • 6

    Message Queuing

    Mirth Connect can also manage message queues, allowing for reliable and asynchronous processing of data. It ensures that messages are processed in the order they are received and provides features like guaranteed delivery and message persistence

  • 7

    Logging & Monitoring:

    Mirth Connect offers comprehensive logging and monitoring capabilities. It logs detailed information about message processing, errors, and system activity, which can be used for troubleshooting, auditing, and performance analysis

  • 8
