The archetypical “Hello World” solution in the HL7 v2 messaging world will consist of a HL7 v2 message receiver which writes the messages it receives to files in the file system. A more sophisticated solution will receive an inbound message and send it out to an external system, possibly transforming it before sending.
This article works through the mechanics of configuring the “SOA Suite for healthcare integration” to send a HL7 v2.3.1 ADT message as a Canonical Message, extending the solution developed in the previous article, “” to be found at .
This article assumes that the reader is sufficiently familiar with HL7 v2 and HL7 v2 messaging to require no elaboration on the message structures, message acknowledgement processing and the “equivalence” of HL7 v2 delimited and HL7 v2 XML message forms.
This article assumes that the reader has the SOA Suite for healthcare integration environment with all necessary components installed and ready to use. The Bill of Materials for such an environment and a discussion on where the components can be obtained is provided in the earlier article, “SOA Suite for healthcare integration Series – Overview of the Development Environment”, to be found at http://blogs.czapski.id.au/2012/08/soa-suite-for-healthcare-integration-series-overview-of-the-development-environment.
This article assumes that the reader completed the solution discussed in the earlier article, “SOA Suite for healthcare integration Series – HL7 v2 Inbound to File Solution”, to be found at http://blogs.czapski.id.au/2012/11/soa-suite-for-healthcare-integration-series-hl7-v2-inbound-to-file-solution.
