Book Description

As Mirth Corporation says on their web-site, "Mirth Connect is the Swiss Army knife of healthcare integration engines, specifically designed for HL7 message integration. It provides the necessary tools for developing, testing, deploying, and monitoring interfaces. And because it's open source, you get all of the advantages of a large community of users with commercial quality support."

This book introduces readers to the point that they are confident enough to start building their own healthcare data exchange interfaces and transforming HL7 messages to CDA/CCD documents.

As you read this book, you will be implementing a fictitious CCD Builder Server. Each connection point (channels and destinations) is explained in a separate chapter, which in turn provides step-by-step instructions on how to create and code data transformation rules for ADT and ORU messages.

The book introduces the reader the HL7 Reference Information Model (RIM) model to let you implement a proof of concept JavaScript library to parse CDA Header participants.

Lastly, the book gives brief overview of system design and systems integration requirements needed to implement the CDA based system. It also describes a CCD document verification process based on CDA XML schema validation, CDA MIF validation, CCD conformance validation and CCD Schematron verification process which differs from HL7v3 messages conformance. The CCD documents require some elements that are optional in HL7 CDA specification.
