I'm looking for helpers to convert messages from hl7 (pipe delimited) 2.5.1 to hl7 (pipe delimited) 2.3.1.

So far I've found nHapi and NHapiTools.

But there seems to be no way of simply converting from one version to another. I understand that we could loose information.

Any help appreciated.

  • Do you need it open source? Also do you need source or would an API work? – Nick Wilde Mar 26 '14 at 13:22
  • If you're converting from 2.5 to 2.3 then there definitely is a chance you may lose information given that 2.5 has quite a bit more brand new segments and fields than 2.3. If you really need to do this in .NET, that's fine, but you'd probably do better to use an integration engine to make this message translation. Something like Mirth, that's freeware. – SQLSavant Mar 27 '14 at 0:04
  • @NickWilde An API would work if it's free. – Olivier MATROT Mar 27 '14 at 14:40
  • @cloyd800 I'm primarily working with ADT and ORM messages (Radiology). I'll take a look at Mirth. Thanks for that. – Olivier MATROT Mar 27 '14 at 14:49
  • @OlivierMATROT , we just completed this project by extracting the pipe delimited records parsing to sql database through sql script. If this issue is still open, i can share the details. – goofyui Apr 14 '19 at 23:08
