Data transmission between two or more computers in such a way that they can process it without human intervention, requires defining proper standards and protocols. HTTP, TCP/IP, etc. are examples of such protocols, but they deal in more generic communication channels. While sending domain-specific data requires definition of more specific standards. HL7(Health Level Seven) is one of the EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) standards mainly used to exchange the data between healthcare service providers (Billing Companies, Hospitals, clinics, nursing homes etc.) and laboratories/ pharmacies to send and receive patient’s medical record (PMR).
There are many environments in the real life that are dealing with electronic data exchange without having a proper mechanism like educational, human resource management and many others. Proposing and developing a standard akin to HL7 would great help in reduction of human efforts as well as data analytics.
o Rule tables
o Import/Export mechanism
o Subfields and their identification
o Information representation format (ASCII etc)
Implementation of the above proposal in terms of:
This step involves the comparison (tabular/graphical) of the work with existing HL7 standard, in terms of:
