  • 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)
