From detailed guides to online courses – resources are available to provide you with the knowledge necessary to build and integrate EHR applications.

Transport Standards

Standards are also required to describe the transport of information and protocols to convey EHR data. A set of standards that enables network, communication and transport protocol interoperability is sometimes referred to as Transport Level Interoperability (TLI) . These standards describe the network and transport protocols, as well as communication and interaction models (e.g. synchronous/asynchronous). Some messaging standards are restricted to using a particular type of transport standard (for example, REST can only be used with HTTP, and HL7 v2 can only be used over TCP/IP), but many can be transmitted over different channels (for example, SOAP can be transmitted over HTTP, but also can use the Java messaging service, or Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP)).
