What are the HL7 Communications Libraries for?

The Merge HL7 Toolkit will abstract the complexities of HL7 encoding and decoding rules along with acknowledgements, allowing the application developer to concentrate on underlying business logic & workflow.

What does the HL7 Parser do?

Parsing and generating HL7 compliant messages is simple and straight forward. All messages will be supported in a flexible framework, which allows application developers to work with an HL7 data model rather than the underlying messaging syntax.

What does the HL7 Translator do?

Most HL7 deployments require at least some translation of incoming and outgoing messages to achieve the level of interoperability desired. With the Merge HL7 Toolkit, Service Engineers will have the ability to apply a variety of transformations to achieve an optimal customer deployment.

What do the Message Samples and Utilities help with?

The Merge HL7 Toolkit will help Application Developers and Service Engineers by providing a suite of sample utilities aimed at assisting with the tasks typically performed during interface testing. The samples also provide an important resource for new Application Developers.

What does the Code Generator do?

Many HL7 applications use locally defined message segments that are not part of the HL7 standard. Commonly known as Z-segments, these are part of the reason HL7 is considered a flexible standard. The code generation utility app will help app writers define & integrate their own custom segments.

What platforms are supported?

Microsoft Windows (32 and 64): C#/.Net, Java Linux: Java Sun Solaris:Java Android 4.0 and higher on ARMv7: Java
