  • conversion of HL7 version to another...

    I am a newbie. Is there a way to convert HL7 message from one version to another? Say if I wanna convert from HL7 v.2.3.1 to HL7 v.3.0. How do I do that? I don't want the message content (v.2.3.1) to be changed. There is no mapping present. Its just LlpSender --> FileWriter and FileReader --> LlpSender. There are no transforms for the v.2.3.1 message. But I need the message in v.3.0. Is it possible in mirth 1.6.1? If so, please guide me...

    Converting between the 2.x variants is pretty easy and almost fully automated.

    However, going from 2.x to 3.0, though doable, requires that you create the mappings yourself. Either using javascript or something like XSLT. So though it's doable in principle, right now it will take a lot of work on your part.

    If you're looking for a quick and painless 2.x -> 3.0 transformation solution, you're out of luck.

    Besides that, the spec for lab results (typically what 2,x is used for the most) in 3.0 isn't even out yet.
