  • binary data transfer

    I'm new to HL7, does anyone know what segment to use to transfer binary data (i.e. PDF file) via HL7 messages? Thanks.

    By definition, you can't transport RAW binary data in HL7. Yo need to transform it to base64.

    The segment should be OBX, and the field OBX.5 (whith OBX.2 set to ED)

      thanks for the info. when you said base64, do you mean converting the binary data to base 64? is there such a utility i can use? thanks.
