somewhere.

Ken,

Thank you! I never worked worked with HL7 and I was wondering if you
would know which application would allow me to get data from a HL7
interface. Here is a list of applications:

Sorry... I have no idea. You may want to ask the owner of that web site. It's obvious that
he has experience with HL7.

I looked at the list of free HL7 applications at that site but I need
actual code. If anybody has actual visual basic code that can get data
(and possibly) parse data from a HL7 interface, that would be greatly
appreciated!

Please post.

Thanks,

Phin

It turns out that I only need to parse the data.
Any parsing code for HL7 2.3 would be greatly appreciated.

These guys offer an evaluation tool kit. The package itself is quite expensive (about
$3,000).

The Medi7 Parser Toolkit provides Complete Standard Support
http://www.eversolve.com/codesamp.htm

It looks like there's at least a "snip" or two available here.....

Parsing a Batch message uisng the Parsing Engine
"The following VB code accesses HL7 2.3 ADTA01 fields in an Batch that contains muitiple
messages"
http://support.symphonia3.com/suppor...p?articleID=75

Other than those, I have no idea. This is the first I've heard of HL7. From the price of
the available packages though, it may be worth learning so I can release some shareware

HL7 is just string data sent over a socket.
You should be able to create a TCP client and use a binary reader to
read the string data. The its just a matter of parsing it. What you
have to determine before jumping into HL7 though is are you going to
do a complete implementation of the HL7 standard or just a subset that
relates to your business needs. I have an XML file around here
somewhere with the HL7 definitions I will find it and post it.

HL7 is coupled with different messages such as PID and others. A general
socket communication protocol will work . Once recieved, it is your
responsibility to decipher each message, understand what each one is by
creating a collection to identity each message. These classes exist in a
tool which was develop in Europe.
