ABSTRACT

Recently supply of Internet is bringing a important change in medical environments. The hospitals which had a different system is required the system that can efficiently share and exchange medical information. In order to transmission medical information between systems, the Health Level Seven(HL7) interface engine development that can convert medical data to HL7 messages is necessary. The HL7 is a standard protocol for data exchange in healthcare environments. In this paper, I implemented HL7 interface engine for Alzheimer's disease in elderly care facility. The interface engine is composed of the client system and the server system. The client system inputs user's medical care data for the aged, and builds them into HL7 message stream. HL7 messages in the client system transmitted over TCP/IP protocol to the server system. The server system parses and validates this messages stream to the segments and fields and then transmits acknowledgement to the client system. I implemented it using the Java and JavaCC. The study of interface engine implementation can be used meaningfully in electronic health record, telemedicine system, and medical information sharing among various healthcare institutions.
