The Health Level Seven (HL7) message standard, version 2, is the most important interface for the integration of information systems in hospitals - in Germany as well as internationally. HL7v2 enables the exchange of patient, order, diagnostic and billing data between hospital information systems, laboratory systems, radiology and cardiology departmental systems and many other hospital IT systems. Knowledge of this standard is not only important for system developers and system integrators, but also for system administrators in hospitals.
The content of the courses is primarily aimed at professionals in the field of software development, system integration, system administration, service, as well as technically interested users in the field of medical IT. Usually, the training courses take place online. On-site training courses at your company or organization are also possible on request. The current range of training courses is described below.
