  • Query response messages


    This is a general HL7 question so apologies if I am posting to the wrong forum but I thought the members here could help.

    I am looking to query an LIS and get back information regarding specimen details. I was thinking of using the QRY^R01 and getting back an ORF^R04. However this does not allow the SAC segment in the response.

    Am I thinking about this incorrectly, can a response contain any segment that I like? I also had a look at the QPD message type but can't find a suitable message here either.

    Any pointers in the right direction would be appreciated.

    Make sure that the LIS in question will accept queries. If the LIS does accept queries then ask if there is a specification for how the query message must be formatted and populated to be a valid query. (Don't assume that every system that sends/receives HL7 conforms to how you read the specification.) You should also ask to see a spec for how the response is formatted and populated. Good luck and let us know how it goes.
