TCP/IP ports for Message with Encapsulated data (ORU^R01).

Dave has more than 20 years experience in training, consulting, and software development. Identical format and restrictions as in reference pointer see Section 2.

It contains the identity of the source system, the type of data, the encoding method of the data, and the data itself.

To begin, start with the answer to this question: If the encoding component ED. The type of encoding used to represent successive octets of binary data as displayable ASCII characters.

Review these prior blog postings for details:. Refer to HL7 Table – Encoding for valid values. The characters are limited to the legal characters of the ST data type, as defined in Section 2. Latest posts by Dave Shaver see all. This can be expressed as “encode”, “escape”, “parse”, “de-escape” or “decode”.


This data type transmits encapsulated data from a source system to a destination system.

hll7 Once the document is received by the target application, how will that receiving application file it correctly into the patient chart? Hi, i have a report. This data type is similar to the RP reference pointer data type of Section 2.

Displayable ASCII characters which constitute the data to be sent from source application enccapsulated destination application. The following two tabs change content below. Identical to “type of data” component in the reference pointer RP data type. A unique name that identifies the system which was the source of the data. Identical to “subtype” component in the reference pointer RP data type.

The complexity of each solution varies wildly based on the encapsulatedd involved. Review these prior blog postings for details: The second question to answer: On the receiving application, the data field must be de-escaped after being parsed out of the message before being decoded. For example, if you send two PDF files one pathology report and one ED summaryhow will the dzta application know onto which tab of the patient chart the document should flow?


The key question is not what the HL7 standard says about document encoding or even what the interface engine can do encapuslated the document. How will the source application provide the PDF file and how will the destination application s receive the data?

Home Data Type ED – encapsulated data.

Rather, the focus should be on how the PDF file will be delivered to and from the source and destination application and how the target application will display the document. If the encoding component see Section 2.
