Home Care Software Geek Explains HL7 Messages

The Home Care Software Geek posts in this blog don't talk about Home Care Nursing Software, Private Duty Telephony, DME Delivery Software, Home Infusion Care Management or the other topics we focus on regularly at Ankota.  Instead, these posts are intended to keep our readers up to date with technology trends that might be useful to us, such as social media technologies, mobile devices, and what's happening from the big-boys like Microsoft and Google.

A few weeks ago, I exceeded my normal geekness (is that a word?) and explained how health care software systems are able to communicate with each other using the HL7 protocol.  The original post is here, but the bottom line is that HL7 messages are what make it possible for your hospital bill to know all of the things you need to be charged for (note that HL7 is not only for hospitals, but that's where most of the world's health care software lives).

Well, the nice people at www.interfaceware.com have created another simple and entertaining video to go deeper into how HL7 works.  So now our geekiest post ever has a sequel.  This video below explains what an HL7 message looks like.  Enjoy!
