What is HL7

What is HL7?

Health Level 7 (HL7) is the standard used by most RIS and HIS to exchange information between systems. It was designed for sending notifications about events in a health system (e.g., a patient is admitted) and transmitting information (e.g., laboratory data and radiology reports). It was not designed to handle image information, because that role is primarily served by DICOM.
