HL7 Interface Engine &
Epic HL7 Integration Do For You?

Interface engines are created to enable and facilitate seamless information exchange and smooth communication between applications. Integration between HL7 and Epic can help your organization track patients and their treatment progress, improve clinical workflows, and help you deliver superior quality of care. This can all be done by integrating the HL7 interface with Epic. These interface engines work on the basis of the accuracy of the HL7 interface specifications assigned to them. Here are some critical Epic HL7 specifications:
  • Interface reference name
  • System version and name for source and destination
  • Data types
  • Segment/field attributes
  • Message types
  • Message definitions
  • Customer segments
  • HL7 tables with data type and fields
  • Challenges in interoperability

Alternatively, you can also integrate with a single API by using Epic on FHIR.
