Vocera HL7 Adapter
Release Notes - Version 220.127.116.11
Updated: April 16, 2021
About the Vocera HL7 Adapter
The Vocera HL7 Adapter is
used to connect with an existing HL7 capable system. By creating multiple HL7 adapter
instances, an installation can allow for communication with different departments and system
types within a single facility.
A Vocera HL7 Adapter is used to communicate with any other system or database that is HL7 capable. It brings the
pertinent information, such as lab results, to the Vocera Platform and stores
those events in the Data Manager. This information is then potentially later sent to the
recipient database of that HL7 message based upon appliance configurations. The content of the
message varies depending on the HL7 configuration in the appliance, but an HL7 message may
include data such as patient information and history, lab results, and radiology reports.
This section summarizes the new features in this release.
