HL7 SDK Technology

LEADTOOLS Medical Imaging SDKs include everything developers need to bridge their applications with other Health Level Seven (HL7) applications and systems. LEADTOOLS HL7 libraries for .NET (C# & VB) simplify the integration of complex and widely-adopted HL7 standards into any application, including Electronic Health Record (EHR), DICOM, and PACS applications.

HL7 defines several OSI-model layer-7 communication standards to transfer clinical and administrative data between hospital information systems. HL7 messaging standards define how information is to be encapsulated and communicated between nodes and facilitate interoperability between Patient Administration Systems (PAS), Electronic Practice Management (EPM) systems, Laboratory Information Systems (LIS), Pharmacy and Billing systems, Electronic Medical Record (EMR), and Electronic Health Record (EHR) systems.

  • Integrating HL7 into Medical Applications with LEADTOOLS

    Health Level Seven (HL7) Messaging has gained widespread popularity and acceptance as a flexible standard of exchanging structured electronic health information. HL7 can enable communication and interoperability between standardized information and imaging systems such as Electronic Health Records (EHR), Hospital Information System (HIS), Radiology Information System (RIS), Laboratory Information System (LIS), and Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS), as well as any individual practice management or front-office application used by health care providers for tasks such as billing and patient tracking. The LEADTOOLS HL7 SDK simplifies the integration of complex HL7 standards into any health care application and developers can create full-featured, HL7-compliant PACS in record time.
