Introduction

HL7 v2.x Specification

This is an update to the Corepoint Health HL7 Reference Guide that includes

Unlike many protocol specifications, which contain cookbook-like rules for
exchanging data, the HL7 v2.x specification is like a catalog for creating HL7 messages. The HL7 standard provides a shopping list of message ‘ingredients’ to discuss
and negotiate. The key point is that each vendor who implements HL7 may interpret
the specification slightly differently, using slightly different ‘ingredients’ to send the
same information.

HL7 V2.5.
Please continue to use the HL7 Reference Guide, Second Edition, for a
complete overview of HL7 and industry best practices.

Note: Chapters in red denote chapters that are new in the
v2.5 specification.

The HL7 v2.x specification is a complex specification, defining required and optional
message ingredients for every HL7 message. Starting at chapter 2, each chapter of the
HL7 standard defines the ‘ingredients’ that can be used when creating HL7 messages
for a specific healthcare problem area (i.e. patient tracking, orders, results, etc.).
The HL7 v2.5 specification is over 1500 pages long. To avoid duplication of data within
the specification, references are made to information previously defined, making the
specification easier to keep updated, but harder to read.
It is difficult to gain the “big picture” of HL7 by reading the specification. Therefore,
training is recommended as the most effective way to learn HL7. Visit the NeoTool
website for information on HL7 training.
Due to the varying nature of information exchanged within an HL7 message, HL7 messages have been defined with many levels of information. In the HL7 v2.x standard:

• Real 

world events are represented as triggers
• Triggers 

are modeled as messages
• Messages 

are built using segments
• Segments 

are built of fields
• Fields 

are built of components/data
HL7 Version 2.5 introduces a number of new events, segments and messages, as well
as a significantly expanded chapter on Control. Version 2.5 is more consistent and
supports more functionality than any of the previous versions.
