Creating and managing HL7v2 messages

This page explains how to ingest, create, label, list, view, and delete HL7v2 messages.

Overview of creating and ingesting HL7v2 messages

The messages.create method is used to store an HL7v2 message in the Cloud Healthcare API.

The messages.ingest method is also used to store an HL7v2 message in the Cloud Healthcare API. However, it also generates a response containing an HL7v2 acknowledgement (ACK) message when successful or a negative acknowledgement (NACK) message in case of error, suitable for replying to HL7v2 interface systems that expect these acknowledgements.

Message ingestion and creation with an MLLP adapter

HL7v2 messages are delivered between care systems and the Cloud Healthcare API using the minimal lower layer protocol (MLLP). For more information, see MLLP and the Google Cloud Platform MLLP adapter. For instructions on how to configure an MLLP adapter to communicate securely with the Cloud Healthcare API, see Transmitting HL7v2 messages over TCP/IP connections.

Ingesting HL7v2 messages

After the Cloud Healthcare API ingests the message from a care system, the Cloud Healthcare API generates a response containing an hl7ack field which contains a base64-encoded HL7v2 message with the following characteristics:

  • The message type is ACK.
  • The sending facility and the receiving facility are reversed, and the sending application and receiving application are reversed.
  • The send time of the message is the current time and a new control ID is generated.
  • The MSA.1 field's value defines a response type. An AA response type indicates Application Accept, meaning that the message was validated and successfully ingested.
  • The MSA.2 value contains the original message's control ID.

The following samples show how to ingest an HL7v2 message using the projects.locations.datasets.hl7V2Stores.messages.ingest method.

curl command

To ingest an HL7v2 message, make a POST request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • A message
  • An access token

The following sample shows a POST request using curl and a sample JSON file called hl7v2-sample.json.

curl -X POST \
     -H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth application-default print-access-token)" \
     -H "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8" \
     --data-binary @hl7v2-sample.json \
     "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID/messages:ingest"

The following sample response shows the hl7Ack and message details.

  }
}

PowerShell

To ingest an HL7v2 message, make a POST request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • A message
  • An access token

The following sample shows a POST request using Windows PowerShell and a sample JSON file called hl7v2-sample.json.

$cred = gcloud auth application-default print-access-token
$headers = @{ Authorization = "Bearer $cred" }

Invoke-WebRequest `
  -Method Post `
  -Headers $headers `

Creating HL7v2 messages

The following samples show how to create an HL7v2 message using the projects.locations.datasets.hl7V2Stores.messages.create method.

curl command

To create an HL7v2 message, make a POST request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • A message. If you need a sample HL7v2 message to use with the sample commands, you can download the hl7v2-sample.json JSON file.
  • An access token

The following sample shows a POST request using curl and a sample JSON file called hl7v2-sample.json.

curl -X POST \
     -H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth application-default print-access-token)" \
     -H "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8" \

     "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID/messages"

If the request is successful, the server returns the response in JSON format:

HL7v2 message segment separators and encoding

The default segment separator in HL7v2 is a carriage return (\r). Most text editors use newline (\n) characters as segment separators. This produces HL7v2 messages that can't be ingested into the Cloud Healthcare API using the default configuration. To permit an HL7v2 store to ingest messages that use newline characters as segment separators, see Setting the segment terminator.

To convert the newline characters in a file to carriage returns, run the following command in a Linux shell:

sed -z 's/\n/\r/g' INPUT_FILENAME > OUTPUT_FILENAME

The ingest and create methods expect HL7v2 messages to be base64 encoded strings. To convert a string to base64 encoding, run the following command in a Linux shell:

openssl base64 -A -in ./INPUT_FILENAME -out ./OUTPUT_FILENAME

Setting the segment terminator

When creating or ingesting data, the HL7v2 message format requires that segments are terminated using the return character, \r. You can configure an HL7v2 store to accept HL7v2 messages with a non-standard terminator, such as \n.

Consider the following HL7v2 message that uses the default \r as the segment terminator. This message is accepted by default when you create an HL7v2 store.

MSH|^~\\&|FROM_APP|FROM_FACILITY|TO_APP|TO_FACILITY|20150503223000||ADT^A01|20150503223000|P|2.5|\r

PV1||I|H73 RM1^1^^HIGHWAY 73 CLINIC||||5148^MARY QUINN|||||||||Y||||||||||||||||||||||||||||20150503223000|\r

The following message is identical to the previous message, except that it uses \n as the segment terminator:

MSH|^~\\&|FROM_APP|FROM_FACILITY|TO_APP|TO_FACILITY|20150503223000||ADT^A01|20150503223000|P|2.5|\n

PID|1||21004053^^^^MRN||SULLY^BRIAN||19611209|M|||123 MAIN ST^^MOUNTAIN SPRINGS^CO^80439|\n
PV1||I|H73 RM1^1^^HIGHWAY 73 CLINIC||||5148^MARY QUINN|||||||||Y||||||||||||||||||||||||||||20150503223000|\n

To store the message with the non-standard terminator, configure the ParserConfig object in the HL7v2 store and set the segmentTerminator field to the base64-encoding of \n.

The following samples show how to configure segmentTerminator in ParserConfig when you create an HL7v2 store. If you have an existing HL7v2 store, you can edit it to provide the ParserConfig body. After setting the segment terminator, you can create or ingest the message.

curl command

To create an HL7v2 store with the segment terminator set to \n, make a POST request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • A parserConfig object with the segmentTerminator set to Cg== (the base64-encoding of \n)
  • An access token

The following sample shows a POST request using curl.

curl -X POST \
    --data "{
      'parserConfig': {
        'segmentTerminator': 'Cg=='
      }
    }" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth application-default print-access-token)" \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8" \
    "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores?hl7V2StoreId=HL7V2_STORE_ID"

If the request is successful, the server returns the response in JSON format:

{
  "name": "projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID",
  "parserConfig": {
    "segmentTerminator": "Cg=="
  }
}

PowerShell

To create an HL7v2 store with the segment terminator set to \n, make a POST request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • A parserConfig object with the segmentTerminator set to Cg== (the base64-encoding of \n)
  • An access token

The following sample shows a POST request using Windows PowerShell.

$cred = gcloud auth application-default print-access-token
$headers = @{ Authorization = "Bearer $cred" }

Invoke-WebRequest `
  -Method Post `
  -Headers $headers `
  -ContentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8" `
  -Body "{

        'segmentTerminator': 'Cg=='
      }
  } `
  -Uri "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores?hl7V2StoreId=HL7V2_STORE_ID" | Select-Object -Expand Content

If the request is successful, the server returns the response in JSON format:

{
  "name": "projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID",
  "parserConfig": {
    "segmentTerminator": "Cg=="
  }
}

Using a null segment header

An HL7v2 message without a message header segment (MSH) has a null segment header. Typically, an HL7v2 message contains a MSH that defines metadata such as the message's source, intent, purpose, and destination. The MSH enables you to search and filter messages. However, you can store messages that don't contain an MSH by configuring the ParserConfig object in the HL7v2 store and set the allowNullHeader field to true.

The folllowing sample message contains a Patient Identification (PID) segment, but no MSH:

PID|1||21004053^^^^MRN||SULLY^BRIAN||19611209|M|||123 MAIN ST^^MOUNTAIN SPRINGS^CO^80439

The following samples show how to configure allowNullHeader in ParserConfig when you create an HL7v2 store. If you have an existing HL7v2 store, you can edit it and provide the ParserConfig body. After setting allowNullHeader to true, you can create or ingest messages with null segment headers.

curl command

To create an HL7v2 store and store messages that don't contain an MSH, make a POST request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • A parserConfig object with allowNullHeader set to true
  • An access token

The following sample shows a POST request using curl.

curl -X POST \
    --data "{
      'parserConfig': {
        'allowNullHeader': true
      }
    }" \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth application-default print-access-token)" \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8" \
    "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores?hl7V2StoreId=HL7V2_STORE_ID"

If the request is successful, the server returns the response in JSON format:

{
  "name": "projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID",
  "parserConfig": {
    "allowNullHeader": true
  }
}

PowerShell

To create an HL7v2 store and store messages that don't contain an MSH, make a POST request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • A parserConfig object with allowNullHeader set to true
  • An access token

The following sample shows a POST request using Windows PowerShell.

$cred = gcloud auth application-default print-access-token
$headers = @{ Authorization = "Bearer $cred" }

Invoke-WebRequest `
  -Method Post `
  -Headers $headers `
  -ContentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8" `

  "parserConfig": {
    "allowNullHeader": true
  }
}

Labeling an HL7v2 message

You can add one or more key-value labels to a message. A use case for labels is adding status labels to a message so that an application can query messages by status.

The following samples show how to add labels to an HL7v2 message using the projects.locations.datasets.hl7V2Stores.messages.patch method.

curl command

To add labels to an HL7v2 message, make a PATCH request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • The message ID
  • The label data to update
  • An update mask
  • An access token

The following sample shows a PATCH request using curl.

curl -X PATCH \
    -H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth application-default print-access-token)" \
    -H "Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8" \
    --data "{
      'labels': {
        'KEY' : 'VALUE'
      }
    }" "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID/messages/MESSAGE_ID?updateMask=labels"

If the request is successful, the server returns the response in JSON format:

        "type": "TYPE_2"
    }
  ],
  "labels": {
    "KEY": "VALUE"
  }
}

Getting HL7v2 message contents

The following samples show how to get the contents of an HL7v2 message using the projects.locations.datasets.hl7V2Stores.messages.get method. To determine the parts of the message to get, supply the view query parameter with one of the following options:

  • BASIC: Include only the name field.
  • RAW_ONLY: Include all the message fields except the parsedData field.
  • PARSED_ONLY: Include all the message fields except the data field.
  • FULL: Include all the message fields. This is the default.

The following samples show how to get the contents of an HL7v2 message using the FULL, RAW_ONLY, and PARSED_ONLY views.

Using the FULL view

You don't need to explicitly set the FULL view, as FULL is the default value. However, in the following curl and Windows PowerShell samples, the FULL view is added as a query parameter for completeness.

curl command

To get the contents of an HL7v2 message using the FULL view, make a GET request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • The message ID
  • FULL as the view
  • An access token

The following sample shows a GET request using curl.

curl -X GET \
     -H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth application-default print-access-token)" \
     "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID/messages/MESSAGE_ID?view=FULL"

If the request is successful, the server returns the response in JSON format:

To get the contents of an HL7v2 message using the FULL view, make a GET request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • The message ID
  • FULL as the view
  • An access token

Deleting an HL7v2 message

The following samples show how to delete an HL7v2 message using the projects.locations.datasets.hl7V2Stores.messages.delete method.

curl command

To delete an HL7v2 message, make a DELETE request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • The HL7v2 message ID
  • An access token

The following sample shows a DELETE request using curl.

curl -X DELETE \
     -H "Authorization: Bearer $(gcloud auth application-default print-access-token)" \
     "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID/messages/MESSAGE_ID"

If the request is successful, the server returns the empty body response in JSON format:

{}

PowerShell

To delete an HL7v2 message, make a DELETE request and specify the following information:

  • The name of the parent dataset
  • The name of the HL7v2 store
  • The HL7v2 message ID
  • An access token

The following sample shows a DELETE request using Windows PowerShell.

$cred = gcloud auth application-default print-access-token
$headers = @{ Authorization = "Bearer $cred" }

Invoke-WebRequest `
  -Method Delete `
  -Headers $headers `
  -Uri "https://healthcare.googleapis.com/v1/projects/PROJECT_ID/locations/LOCATION/datasets/DATASET_ID/hl7V2Stores/HL7V2_STORE_ID/messages/MESSAGE_ID" | Select-Object -Expand Content

If the request is successful, the server returns the empty response body in JSON format:

{}
