In this tutorial series, we walk you step-by-step through the process of creating a realistic inbound interface that can receive HL7 messages and process the information into a database.
The first video in our series demonstrates how to setup your environment to begin building a realistic inbound interface.
In part two of our series, you will begin creating an interface which involves looking at the incoming HL7 message, parsing the message and saving some basic demographic information.
The third video of our series takes a look at the more complex mapping of repeating fields. This tutorial will deal specifically with next of kin information.
In the fourth video of our series, you will learn how to deploy your functioning interface into production.
The fifth video in our series demonstrates the true power of what a scripting based mapper can do by showing you how to handle non-trival mappings.
