Session 1 – Healthcare Messaging Standards


This session will give an understanding of why messaging is used in healthcare and the goals that are achieved. The session will conclude with a view of the scope of HL7 and the concepts and Principles used in messaging.

  • Hospital Workflow
  • Purpose & Scope of HL7
  • Development of HL7
  • HL7 Domain

Sessions 2,3 –Concepts and Principles


This session gives an understanding of what HL7 is and its concepts. It introduces messaging types and trigger events and then goes into the building of HL7 messages and the elements involved in the construction. It goes into detail of the structure and the roles of each message component.

  • What HL7 is/is not
  • HL7 Concepts
  • Encoding Characters
  • Escape Sequences
  • Message Control
  • Trigger Events
  • Message Types
  • Segments/Structures
  • Fields/Tables
  • Interface Engines

Session 4,5,6–Building Messages and Segments


In this session details of messages their segments (down to the field level) will be fully discussed. Most important messages and segments shall be covered.

Session 7–HL7 Building Blocks(Data Types)


This session discusses in detail concepts of data types and all-importantdata types.

  • Data Types 1 (Alphanumeric/numeric/identifiers)
  • Data Types 2 (Demographic/coded)
  • Data Types 3 (Date-Time/miscellaneous)

Session 8-Sending & Responding


This session examines the role of acknowledgements and message responses in HL7 and introduces the use of queries and continuation messages.

  • Acknowledgements & Responses
  • Processing Rules
  • Transport protocols
  • Continuation Messages
  • Batch messaging

Session 9–Conformance & Specification


This session examines conformance in HL7 messaging and the reason for its use. Conformance profiles are examined in detail as well as the conformance tools that are available.

  • Why Conformance?
  • Conformance Profile 1 (Use case/dynamic)
  • Conformance Profile 2 (Static)
  • Conformance Tools

Session 10,11,12,13–Integrations/Interfaces


By this point of time, the resources will be well acquainted and confident with the theoretical aspects of HL7 V2.7. These sessionswill now focus completely on hands on. Each resource will be trained to dissect each message and understand each field with nothing more than their knowledge and notepad.exe. They would then be provided a real-lifescenario and trained to construct an HL7 message with notepad.exe. Following this they will be trained to receive and send these messages using freeware tools, to get an understanding of real-worldrequirements. Next, they will be trained in the use of different freeware applications that would allow them to quickly accept, read, analyse and modify/correct HL7 V2.7 messages. They would also learn to use these tools to quickly construct messages. Finally, the resources will learn how to create a conformance profile, using a popular open -source tool.

Session14 –Hands-On


During this session each student will come up with a use case and present the use case using a working prototype.

Session 15–Cracking the Exams


In this session, the resources will be taught the details of appearing for the Official HL7 V2.7 International examination. This session will provide all details of how to take the exams the format, marks and all other details required to study and succeed in the afore said exam.

Session 16-HL7 V3 RIM, CDA and FHIR(Birds eye on other aspects of Healthcare standards)


This sessionis tolook at Basicsof V3,CDA,CCD, FHIR(Tounderstand what are these and how are they used)

  • Version 3
  • CDA
  • CCD and comparison with CCR
  • FHIR
