The eiConsole for Healthcare Getting Started Tutorial introduces the user to healthcare-specific features and components that make configuring healthcare interfaces dramatically easier and faster. We recommend that new users complete the eiConsole Quick Start Tutorial and General Level I Tutorials (Modules 1-12) before moving on to the healthcare-specific tutorials and documentation.
Novice HL7 users can become productive quickly with the eiConsole “Friendly Name” option – which replaces cryptic HL7 names with simple, understandable synonyms. All users benefit from inline Documentation with the ability to browse the HL7 vocabulary, including codelists. Save time by automating mapping between slightly incompatible HL7 messages with an “HL7 Differencing Component.” Use a drop-down menu to directly read in all versions of HL7 2.x and 3.x. You can instantly work with extended versions of HL7. Use the Lenient HL7 Parser to work with messages not strictly adherent to the HL7 standard. Select from drop-down menus to choose transmission protocols and transports, all configurable in just minutes. Get a head start and download hundreds of healthcare templates from the PIE (PilotFish Interface Exchange). No tool offers you more healthcare-specific features and components.
