  • New to Mirth, Trying to setup a channel

    I'm new to Mirth, but I think it will solve an issue we have of needing to send data we have in a SQL server 2000 db to the Hospital EMR via HL7. I have Mirth 1.7.1 setup and configed to sql server 2000 db server. I am getting ready to create a table in my Mirth db to write the data I need sent in the message from my primary system.

    I have setup a channel with a db reader source and will put in the select statement for new entries with an update to change a sent flag when it has sent the message. My destination is the hospital system using TCP sender with the hospital IP and port configured.

    I will also need to setup a channel for the ADT feed from the hospital to matchup against their interanal patient IDs. I assume I need to set it up and a TCP listener as source and db writer as destination with it writing to say a patient table to store the patient demographics in. I can then write a trigger on my new db message data table to compare its patient demo to the ADT data and update for the Hospital ID or mark the record if it can?t match.

    Where I am having an issue with is taking what I query from the source and transforming it to the approptiate OBR message format. If someone could point me in the right direction as to how to do that, the help would be greatly appreciated. I believe I have found an example of the incoming and how to map it to the database.

    Have the query run and route its response to a "Channel Writer" but set the channel to send to as "none". Then when you look in the logs, the XML stored as the encoded message can be used as the template for incoming data in the destination thaat you really want to use.

      Sorry for the delay in replying. That did the trick to get my XML template. Should I setup the channel writer to write to the HL7 format with a channel writer and

      msg['patient_name'] = tmp['PID']['PID.5']



      Thanks for the help.
