HL7 (Health Level Seven)

It is widely-known that different software vendors implement their HL7 interfaces in ways that make them incompatible with each other; therefore, an intermediary like MITEM's integration platform (the Core Platform used in all Blue Iris Products for health care) is needed to convert messages between different formats. MITEM is also used to convert between HL7 messages and other messaging formats like XML, WebSphere MQ and TIBCO.

MITEM natively supports HL7 messaging by fully implementing and insulating the transport and parsing functions inside a pre-built MITEM adapter.

This advanced adapter offers multiple advantages over the typical low-level, code-intensive implementations that are found in other integration servers:

  • Single-step routing and transformation of messages
  • Consistent development experience across all formats and protocols
  • Substantially less programming
  • Graphical interface for mapping and message processing
  • Fastest message processing at runtime
  • More robust error handling & recovery
  • Externalization of host dependent meta-data
  • Connects with 3rd party repositories

MITEM's Enterprise Messaging Architecture allows different message and document types (e.g. HL7) to be transmitted over different protocols and transports in a normalized way. By insulating the developer from working with low-level APIs the learning curve is reduced dramatically and message formats and protocols can be changed in the future without requiring a re-write of the integration control and business logic.

Other integration servers that look similar to MITEM's on the surface have only crude, if any, support for messaging protocols. Rather than normalizing the development experience they require discrete knowledge of vendor or community APIs. This low-level approach greatly increases the cost and complexity of interfacing between multiple systems by forcing the developer to learn the programming model for every protocol. In contrast, a developer that knows how to use MITEM to interface with one system automatically has all the requisite knowledge and skills to interface with any other.

A further defining characteristic of MITEM's integration framework is the real-time processing of messages across multiple in-bound and outbound connections. This real-time, asynchronous processing enables maximum flexibility in n-tier server architectures and produces superior end-to-end system performance. MITEM's performance levels meet or exceed the near real-time performance of other messaging systems, while eliminating the complex conditional programming required for coordinating multiple transactions. Furthermore, multiple host transactions can be combined, or marshaled, into a single message thereby reducing the total number of transactions that need to be developed and managed.
