The Caristix HL7 Survival Guide: Understand the Complete Interface Lifecycle

QUEBEC CITY, July 26, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Caristix, an HL7 integration software company serving hospitals and healthcare vendors, today announced the release of the HL7 Survival Guide. This document serves as a resource that provides a total view of the inner workings of each stage of the entire HL7 interface lifecycle.  The guide offers a firm grasp on all the challenges, standards and choices that need to be made through the process of interfacing.  The Survival Guide has been called "truly awesome reading for a true practitioner."

 What Does the HL7 Survival Guide Give Readers?

Unlike other training or documentation, the Survival Guide identifies the complete HL7 interface lifecycle. The Guide covers strategies to both avoid problems and address common interoperability issues. Topics include the basics of integrating and exchanging data, interfacing capabilities, dealing with data formats, workflows and meaning, EHR strategies and working with vendors, and HL7 conformance profiles and interface specifications. Later chapters examine gap analysis, test scenarios and test systems, message samples and test messages, process and workflow, and maintenance, troubleshooting and monitoring.  

Resource Package Also Available

This release includes the HL7 Survival Guide Resource Package, a collection of free supplementary tools designed by Caristix to support the information contained within the HL7 Survival Guide. These tools include: the HL7 Profile Kit, the HL7 Gap Analysis Template, the Interface Asset Template and a Checklist on Collaboration Software for HL7 Integration.  In addition, Caristix is providing HL7 Message Player. Message Player is a free HL7 listener and router to "play" and "record" HL7 messages to validate connectivity between healthcare information systems.

"We developed this guide and the supplementary resources to support our customers and the HL7 community. We're working to support interfacing best practices with practical solutions while inviting discussion of the problems interface experts face on a daily basis," said Caristix president Stéphane Vigot.

Contact Caristix for a Software Demo

For analysts, managers and leaders looking to implement best practices outlined in the HL7 Survival Guide, Caristix provides Workgroup software, an HL7 interface lifecycle management platform. Workgroup software enables hospital and vendor teams to plan, build, and deliver critical healthcare interoperability projects. "Our goal has been to build software that truly meets the needs of our industry, allowing teams to really get hold of their data and interfaces throughout the entire lifecycle through an integrated software package," said Stéphane Vigot.

Personalized software demos are now available for hospital and vendor teams. Request a demo or call the company at 1-877-872-0027 to set up a demo today.

About Caristix

The average US hospital runs up to 100 IT applications. Not a single one of them can share patient information out of the box. So hospitals and vendors turn to data interfaces – 50 to 100 of them in an average hospital. Each interface can take months of painstaking manual work to set up.

Caristix has developed a software suite to automate manual work throughout the interface lifecycle. Our software reads HL7 data and outputs a list of interface requirements. As a result, Caristix software can reduce months of work to a few days. Reduce interface deployment time by 50%, reduce hospital testing time by 75%, and cut interface troubleshooting time by up to 90%.
