We are currently updating the OP Help Center content for the release of OP 14.19 or "OP 19". OP 19 is a member of the certified OP 14 family of products (official version is 14.19.1), which you may see in your software (such as in Help > About) and in the Help Center tabs labeled 14.19. You may also notice that the version number in content and videos may not match the version of your software, and some procedural content may not match the workflow in your software. We appreciate your patience and understanding as we make these enhancements.

OPHL7Service

Version 14.8

OPHL7Service

The OP HL7 Interface allows Practice Management (PM) systems to send information to, and receive information from, Office Practicum. Typically the PM system will send demographic and schedule information to Office Practicum, and Office Practicum will send charge information to the PM system.

Transport

The interface, OPHL7Service.exe, is a Windows service that runs on the practice's network. Information is exchanged with the PM system via HL7 files that are transmitted via two folders, an incoming folder, where the PM system places files and OPHL7Service retrieves files, and an outgoing folder where OPHl7Service places files and the PM system retrieves files. These folders must reside on the practice's network and be accessible by the OPHL7Service.
