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.
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.
