Developing Healthcare Integrations

£1750.00 plus V.A.T. per person

This healthcare-focused five-day course teaches implementation partners, integrators, developers, and analysts how to rapidly build healthcare integration solutions. Students build a healthcare Production that processes and routes non-HL7 data as well as HL7 messages. They create business services, business processes, business operations, and messages in addition to using pre-built HL7 components to receive and send HL7 messages. Students also learn how to transform HL7 messages.

Students build and configure the healthcare Production using InterSystems Objects, graphical tools in the Management Portal, Business Process Language (BPL), the adapter library, and the Atelier IDE.

This course is applicable for users of Ensemble and HealthShare.
