This data type is similar to the RP reference pointer data type of Section 2. Identical to “type of data” component in the reference pointer RP ehcapsulated type. For example, if you send two PDF files one pathology report and one ED summaryhow will the receiving application know onto which tab of the patient chart the document should flow?

ED – Encapsulated Data (HL7 v)

The key question is not what the HL7 standard says about document encoding or even what the interface engine can do with the document. Dave has more than 20 years experience in training, consulting, and software development.


The type of encoding used to represent successive octets of binary data as displayable ASCII characters.

To begin, start with the answer to this question: This can be expressed as “encode”, “escape”, “parse”, “de-escape” or “decode”.

Displayable ASCII characters which constitute the data to be sent from source application to destination application. Hi, i have a report.

The complexity of each solution varies wildly based on the vendors involved. Encapsulsted these prior blog postings for details: This data type transmits encapsulated data from a source system to a destination system. The second question to answer: How will the source application provide the PDF file and how will the destination application s receive the data?


The following two tabs change content below. Rather, the focus should be on how the PDF file will be delivered to and from the source and destination application and how the target application will display the document. Review these prior blog postings for details:. Identical format and restrictions as in reference pointer see Section 2.

Refer to HL7 Table – Encoding for valid values. Identical to “subtype” component in the reference pointer RP data type. Latest posts by Dave Shaver see all.


It contains the identity of the source system, the type of data, the encoding method of the data, and the data itself. The characters are limited to the legal characters of the ST data type, as defined in Section 2.

PDF Attachment in HL7 Message

If the encoding component see Section 2. A unique name that identifies the system which was the source of the data.

If the encoding component ED. On the receiving application, the data field must be de-escaped after being parsed out of the message before being decoded. Home Data Type ED – encapsulated data.

Once the document is received by the target application, how enacpsulated that receiving application file it correctly into the patient chart?
