    This healthcare-focused three-day course teaches implementation partners, integrators and analysts how to build HL7 integration solutions. Students build a production that processes and routes HL7 messages. Students learn how to work with the pre-built HL7 business services, business processes and business operations to receive and send HL7 messages. Students also learn how to transform HL7 messages using graphical tools in the Management Portal.
    This course is applicable for users of InterSystems IRIS for Health, Ensemble, and HealthShare.

    Developing custom business services, business processes, and business operations is not addressed in this course. If you need to create custom business services, business processes, and business operations, refer to the Developing Healthcare Integrations course. This course does not include specific modules on managing productions. If this is a large part of what you need, refer to the Building and Managing HL7 Integrations course.
