Modifying HL7s

With the ever changing rules written by insurance companies and CPT codes, it comes in handy to be able to parse, modify, and repackage your HL7 files created by your LIMS and then update before submitting to billing.

I’ve created a web based middleware to modify HL7s based on parameters such as Payer (carrier) and Payer ruleset. Based on the defined parameters for a given organization the CPT codes of the appropriate segment are updated and homogenized across all files.

After the files have been modified you can post back out from BioRamp or send to an open-sourceĀ Mirth server.

These are not yet based on the emerging HL7 FHIR format; that’ll come next.
