Interoperability Using HL7

The way we exchange data with admission, discharge, and transfer systems (ADTs) will be through an HL7 Interface.

Rather than build­ing a unique inter­face direct­ly with every pos­si­ble ADT sys­tem, HL7 is a stan­dard that allows many appli­ca­tions to share stan­dard infor­ma­tion.  It is the most wide­ly used stan­dard to facil­i­tate the com­mu­ni­ca­tion between two or more clin­i­cal appli­ca­tions. The prime ben­e­fit of HL7 is that it sim­pli­fies the imple­men­ta­tion of inter­faces and reduces the need for cus­tom inter­faces.

Smart Facil­i­ty Soft­ware uses a 3rd-Par­ty HL7 Inter­face Engine. This means that the 3rd par­ty receives the HL7 data from an ADT and strips out HIPAA data, send­ing our appli­ca­tion only the nec­es­sary facil­i­ty data. This way your patient data nev­er touch­es our servers.

Here is the infor­ma­tion that is exchanged:

As patients are dis­charged or trans­ferred in a facility’s admis­sion, dis­charge, and trans­fer (ADT) sys­tem, HL7 mes­sages are sent to an inter­face engine, and appro­pri­ate tasks (such as a room clean) are trig­gered in the Ser­vice Opti­miz­er soft­ware to clean patient rooms.

The Deci­sion Engine dis­trib­utes the tasks through­out the work­force. When envi­ron­men­tal ser­vices team mem­bers mark a room ‘clean’ on their mobile devices, it trig­gers an HL7 mes­sage back to the ADT that com­mu­ni­cates the room is clean.
