Anyone ever used LabVIEW to communicte via HL7?
I would have guessed that someone here must have done so. But searching for HL7 turns up zero hits. Oh, well. Maybe I have to be the first one to invent that wheel?
Yes, thanks, I did mean the "Health Level 7" protocol.
That link looks interesting, but it looks like the author only used LV to acquire the data and deposit it in a local database. The HL7 communication looks like it was done using different software.
In any case, since I can't find anything out-of-the-box, I think I am going to write my own HL7 driver. I just managed to build a quick VI that can receive HL7 messages over a TCPIP socket. Now I just need to parse the messages.
