Vision Series RIS 5. 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. Inc.0 HL7 Interface Guide contains the procedures for configuring the HL7 component of the Vision Series RIS application. as well as a guide for third-party systems to interface with Vision Series RIS. Proprietary and Confidential v .0 HL7 Interface Guide Preface The Vision Series RIS 5. AMICAS.

Proprietary and Confidential 1 . Only the HL7 fields that are used exclusively are listed in this document. 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. Except where noted. MSH-9. The same trigger event code may not be associated with more than one message type. however a message type may be associated with more than one trigger event. (i. Segments of a message may be required or optional.. AMICAS. HL7 data fields may take on the null value.Vision Series RIS 5. A message is the atomic unit of data transferred between systems. Each message has a message type (three-character code) that defines its type. 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. Inc. 1. data is broken up into groups called messages. Refer to the Glossary for message type definitions. 1.1 Sequence The sequence is the position of the data field within the segment. the following information is specified about each field.e. In defining a segment. which is transmitted as two double quote marks (“”).0 HL7 Interface Guide HL7 Overview 1. For Example: MSH-1. A null value will be ignored. Sending the null value. it is omitted) the old value should remain unchanged.3 Fields A field is a string of characters. is different from omitting an optional data field. If no value is sent. The real-world event that initiates an exchange of messages is called a trigger event. they are sent as character strings. They may occur only once in a message or they may be allowed to repeat. 1. When fields are transmitted.3. HL7 Overview 1. Each message consists of a group of segments in a defined sequence. Each segment is given a name.1 Messages Within the HL7 protocol. For example. you need to send a space. If you want to remove a value. These triggers represent actions such as a patient is admitted or an order is placed.2 Segments A segment is a logical grouping of data fields.

This MSH-9 data field contains two components: 1. AMICAS. whichever is the smallest. 1. Proprietary and Confidential 2 . Inc. The designations for both Inbound and Outbound Messages are:     R = this designation means required. optional. The Vision Series RIS application allows the user to configure optional demographic data to be required in the System Properties.

In the segment attribute tables this information is provided in the column labeled HL7 Field Name.2).Vision Series RIS 5.3 Length The length is designated by HL7 or the system. segment terminator. 1.3. In the segment attribute tables this information is provided in the column labeled Opt (beginning in Subsection 3.1.3. B = this designation means backward compatibility with previous versions of HL7. These constraints are imposed specifically upon manual data entry and editing of patient data and will not be enforced upon data received through the inbound interface.1.2). and escape character. 1. The escape character is only used in charge out.2). subcomponent separator. A three-character message type code.4 MSH-9 – Message Types Each HL7 message header has a message type (MSH-sequence 9) that defines the purpose of the message. repetition separator. In the segment attribute tables this information is in a column labeled Len (beginning in Subsection 3.1. C = this designation means conditional (as described in the Comments column beginning in Subsection 3.1.2 Field Name The field name is the descriptive name for the data item. field separator. They are the segment initiator. 2. or conditional in a segment.2) this information is provided in the column labeled Seq.0 HL7 Interface Guide HL7 Overview In the segment attribute tables (beginning in Subsection 3. 1. O = this designation means optional.

Messages are terminated by an end block character sequence of <1C><0D> hex. Messages are prefixed with a character of <0B> hex. the subset of the possible delimiters may be limited by negotiations between applications.0 HL7 Interface Guide HL7 Overview The segment terminator is always a carriage return (in ASCII. AMICAS. This implies that the receiving applications will use the agreed upon delimiters. which is the first field after the segment ID. Separates two adjacent data fields within a segment. this character may be omitted. Terminates a message record. At any given site. The other delimiters are defined in the MSH segment. to parse the message. 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. and the other delimiters occurring as in the field called Encoding Characters. Inc. Segments are terminated with a character of <0D> hex. The escape character is for use with any field represented by an ST. 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. The delimiter values used in the MSH segment are the delimiter values used throughout the entire message.Vision Series RIS 5. or for use with the data (fourth) component of the ED data type If no escape characters are used in a message. Separates adjacent components of data fields where allowed. this character may be omitted. as they appear in the Message Header segment (MSH).6 Message Details    A message is a unit of data transferred between two systems. 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). If there are no subcomponents. Segment Terminator Field Separator | (pipe) 7C Component Separator ^ (carat) 5E Subcomponent Separator & (ampersand) 26 Repetition Separator ~ (tilde) 7E Escape Character \ (backslash) 5C 1. Separates multiple occurrences of a field where allowed. a hex 0D). The message is wrapped between 0B and 1C 0D. In the absence of other considerations. All acknowledgment messages from the remote server will need to follow the same format. Separates adjacent subcomponents of data fields where allowed.

A data field is a string of characters that are of variable length and separated by delimiters as listed below. rather than treat such a circumstance with an error.hl7. The old value will remain unchanged. Proprietary and Confidential 4 . it should be represented by pipes || with at least one space in between.7 Warning to the Reader Message. For general information on HL7 messages.

1 Message Definition In an open-architecture healthcare environment there is often a set of common reference files used by one or more application systems. The MFN message supports this common case.

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:
