BizTalk Accelerator for HL7

Today’s health care industry moves faster than ever. Many health care providers face the challenge of providing the best clinical care in a complex and costly environment. Information management can play a valuable role in facing these challenges, but after years of cost increases and budget cutbacks, combined with mergers and ongoing staff shortages, health care providers can find that information management gets in the way of patient care. Health Level 7 (HL7) is an industry-standard application protocol for electronic data exchange of information. BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 extends the capabilities of BizTalk Server for health care providers by delivering a comprehensive HL7 messaging solution that enables sharing of patient information within and between health care organizations.
