What is a HL7 interface engine?
A HL7 interface engine is an interface or integration engine built specifically for the healthcare industry. It connects legacy systems by using a standard messaging protocol. Because hospitals and other healthcare providers usually have different systems for different aspects of services, they are often unable to communicate with each other. HL7 gets around that problem by providing the framework for the exchange, integration, sharing and retrieval of electronic health information. These standards and the most commonly used throughout the world.
What are the benefits of an HL7 interface engine?
By using a HL7 interface engine, health providers can realize the benefits of existing legacy information systems without major re-investment in new technologies, lowering costs and extending the life and efficiencies of current systems. There is also opportunity to link to systems outside the healthcare provider such as providers of outsourced services like radiology.
How do HL7 interface engines work?
HL7 interface engines are software which work as a go-between for different systems. They monitor different types of interfaces and communication points and perform actions according to rules defined by the organization.
HL7 works with a number of standards (Conceptual Standards, Document Standards, Application Standards and Messaging Standards). Messaging standards define how information is packaged and communicated from one system to another.
