HL7 resources

HL7 PV1 segment

The HL7 PV1 segment contains basic inpatient or outpatient encounter information and consists of 52 different fields with values ranging from assigned patient location, to admitting doctor, to visit number, to servicing facility. The PV1 segment communicates information on an account or visit-specific basis.  The default is to send account level data. If the segment is to be used for visit level data, the PV1-51 Visit Indicator must be set to “V”.
