H2] HIE  

Health Information Exchange 

The Rhapsody HL7 Hub is a series of routes which receives all of the HL7 in the Department. Messages are analyzed for content and sent to specific routes as needed. Inputs include HTTPS, database polling, SFTP, and Rhapsody Connector.  

The Consult Database route receives emails from the Exchange server, parses them, updates a database based on the content, and notifies a recipient of the activity.  

H2] Electronic Lab Reporting (ELR) 

Receive HL7 via PHINMS and SFTP, send them to lab specific routes, perform mapping as needed, and send them to the surveillance system.  

H2] Syndromic Surveillance  

HL7 are received, filtered for Test or Production, codes are mapped as needed, and then inserted into the syndromic surveillance application’s tables.  

Receipt of syndromic surveillance data via CSV from legacy systems are mapped to a standard format and inserted into a table. One of the department’s oldest projects.  

Cancer Registry  

CDA files are processed for the cancer registry.  

Immunization Registry  

Currently processing immunization dosage files.  

Planning to expand to support Immunization messages as well.
