Purpose and Audience This document is intended to serve as a procedure manual for the technical staff responsible for setting up the Vision Series RIS application.0 HL7 Interface Guide contains the procedures for configuring the HL7 component of the Vision Series RIS application. Inc. AMICAS.Vision Series RIS 5.

Sending the null value. Segments of a message may be required or optional. MSH-9. is different from omitting an optional data field. it is omitted) the old value should remain unchanged. however a message type may be associated with more than one trigger event. If no value is sent. A message is the atomic unit of data transferred between systems. Proprietary and Confidential 1 . Refer to the Glossary for message type definitions. If you want to remove a value. Each message consists of a group of segments in a defined sequence. HL7 Overview 1.1 Messages Within the HL7 protocol. They may occur only once in a message or they may be allowed to repeat. When fields are transmitted.Vision Series RIS 5. 1. the following information is specified about each field.e. These triggers represent actions such as a patient is admitted or an order is placed. you need to send a space.3 Fields A field is a string of characters. The difference appears when the contents of a message will be used to update a record in a database rather than create a new one.3. 1. AMICAS. The same trigger event code may not be associated with more than one message type. 1.0 HL7 Interface Guide HL7 Overview 1. Each segment is given a name. For Example: MSH-1. In defining a segment.2 Segments A segment is a logical grouping of data fields. (i. The real-world event that initiates an exchange of messages is called a trigger event. For example. HL7 data fields may take on the null value. which is transmitted as two double quote marks (“”).1 Sequence The sequence is the position of the data field within the segment. Each message has a message type (three-character code) that defines its type.. they are sent as character strings. A null value will be ignored. Inc. Except where noted. Only the HL7 fields that are used exclusively are listed in this document. the ADT message may contain the following segments:     Message Header (MSH) Event Type (EVN) Patient ID (PID) Patient Visit (PV1) Each segment is identified by a unique three-character code known as the Segment ID. data is broken up into groups called messages.

field separator. An alphanumeric trigger event type.4 MSH-9 – Message Types Each HL7 message header has a message type (MSH-sequence 9) that defines the purpose of the message. AMICAS. O = this designation means optional.3.0 HL7 Interface Guide HL7 Overview In the segment attribute tables (beginning in Subsection 3.

This MSH-9 data field contains two components: 1. 1. They are the segment initiator.3 Length The length is designated by HL7 or the system. 1.1. In the segment attribute tables this information is provided in the column labeled Opt (beginning in Subsection 3.3. subcomponent separator. In the segment attribute tables this information is provided in the column labeled HL7 Field Name. Proprietary and Confidential 2 . or conditional in a segment. B = this designation means backward compatibility with previous versions of HL7.4 Optionality Optionality designates if the field is required.2 Field Name The field name is the descriptive name for the data item. optional.1.

The escape character is only used in charge out. The designations for both Inbound and Outbound Messages are:     R = this designation means required. In the segment attribute tables this information is in a column labeled Len (beginning in Subsection 3.

HL7 data will be received via TCP/IP socket or shared folder. All acknowledgment messages from the remote server will need to follow the same format. At any given site. AMICAS. Separates adjacent subcomponents of data fields where allowed. Terminates a message record. The other delimiters are defined in the MSH segment. Separates two adjacent data fields within a segment. However. as they appear in the Message Header segment (MSH). This implies that the receiving applications will use the agreed upon delimiters. This value cannot be changed by implementers. The escape character is for use with any field represented by an ST. which is the first field after the segment ID. Proprietary and Confidential 3 . If there are no subcomponents.6 Message Details    A message is a unit of data transferred between two systems. Separates adjacent components of data fields where allowed. it must be present if subcomponents are used in the message. It also separates the Segment ID from the first data field in each segment.Vision Series RIS 5. Messages are terminated by an end block character sequence of <1C><0D> hex. this character may be omitted. and the other delimiters occurring as in the field called Encoding Characters. Messages are prefixed with a character of <0B> hex. the subset of the possible delimiters may be limited by negotiations between applications. a hex 0D). The delimiter values used in the MSH segment are the delimiter values used throughout the entire message. Segment Terminator Field Separator | (pipe) 7C Component Separator ^ (carat) 5E Subcomponent Separator & (ampersand) 26 Repetition Separator ~ (tilde) 7E Escape Character \ (backslash) 5C 1. Segments are terminated with a character of <0D> hex.0 HL7 Interface Guide HL7 Overview The segment terminator is always a carriage return (in ASCII. Separates multiple occurrences of a field where allowed. this character may be omitted. In the absence of other considerations. Terminates a segment record. The message is wrapped between 0B and 1C 0D. HL7 recommends the following suggested values: Delimiter Message Initiator Message Terminator Suggested Value Vertical Tabulation File separator <CR> carriage return <CR> carriage return Hex Value 0B 1C 0D 0D Usage Initiates a message record. TX or FT data type. with the field delimiter in the 4th character position. All messages sent or received via Vision Series RIS will be constructed according to the Minimal Lower Layer Protocol (MLLP).

4.10 ACK – Acknowledgment Message Type
4.10.1 Definition
The HL7 Acknowledgment Message Type, ACK will be sent by the filler to Vision Series RIS with a success or error message. Once a message is sent from Vision Series RIS (VSRIS) the filler should validate the message. If validation fails, a reject message should be constructed and returned to VSRIS. If validation does not fail, a success message should be returned to VSRIS. The following tables list each Message Type, Trigger Event Type and their descriptions:
