While most HL7 v2 messaging is of the store-and-forward kind, where a sender sends a message to a partner, receives a positive acknowledgement and forgets the transaction, there are circumstances where a sender wants to query the receiver and get and process a response. For ADT-related queries A19 transaction serves this function. A client application can send an A19 QRY message, with a patient identifier and assigning authority and request patient demographic information to be returned using the A19 ADR response message.
In this article we will develop and exercise an A19 Query Processor solution.
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.

Every now and then a situation may arise where a message sent to a downstream system is rejected or a message arriving from an external system, is rejected. Some of the possible issue could be “fixable” and others not. If message is “fixable”, in the sense that its content or structure can be modified and the re-submitted modified message will be accepted, then the operator must follow the steps necessary to extract, repair and resubmit the message. In other circumstances it may be necessary to resubmit a specific batch of messages to an external system, for a particular time period or of particular kind.

In this article we will walk through the process of externalizing a message, “fixing” it and resubmitting it for processing. We will also briefly touch on other uses of the resubmit utility.

More details on the technical aspects of this topic can be found in the Oracle “Technical Note: 11g_005 Command-Line Utilities”, section “Resubmit Utility”, available at http://www.oracle.com/ocom/groups/public/@otn/documents/webcontent/326860.pdf.

In this article we will add exception handling to the routing and transformation solution developed in the article entitled “SOA Suite for healthcare integration Series – Domain Value Map (DVM) – On-the-fly Code Mapping”, to explore how message processing exceptions can be redirected to a logic component for handling. The exception handling components will handle exceptions form all SOA Suite for healthcare integration applications.

In this article the routing and transformation solution developed in the article entitled “SOA Suite for healthcare integration Series – Routing and Transformation using XSL Solution, will be extended to add an on-the-fly code mapping. This does not have anything to do with HL7 or HL7 processing, or indeed SOA Suite for healthcare integration infrastructure, but since the task is a pretty common one in the HL7 messaging world, it will be discussed and illustrated.
