Book Description

Mirth Corp, before it was acquired by QSI, described Mirth Connect platform as "the Swiss Army knife of healthcare integration engines, specifically designed for HL7 message integration. It provides the necessary tools for developing, testing, deploying, and monitoring interfaces. And because it's open source, you get all of the advantages of a large community of users with commercial quality support."

As you may know, Mirth Connect is rebranded and called "NextGen Connect Integraton Engine" now. Quality Systems Incorporated (QSI), the parent company of practice management and EHR company NextGen Healthcare positions Mirth Connect as "NextGen Connect Integraton Engine is an open source, vendor-agnostic interface engine that supports connections between a number of facilities and makes it easy to transform non-standard data into standard formats. With NextGen Connect Integraton Engine, an organization can eliminate the "cost per interface" model of a P2P solution. It can translate scalability and flexibility into profitability."

This book introduces readers to Mirth Connect interface engine 4.x version family. As you read this book, you will become confident enough to start building your own healthcare data exchange interfaces.

By implementing a fictitious Eligibility Query Service, this book covers topics on XSL Transformation, database connection pool, channels acknowledgements and development of Mirth Connect extensions. Other topics include XML schema and Schematron validation, sending objects via the ActiveMQ Message Broker and Web services.

Each chapters explains a single Mirth Connect channel and provides step-by-step instructions how to configure channel's settings, channel's source and destination connectors, and develop transformation rules.
