SOAPwareXchangeHL7 User Guide
In this lesson you will find a brief walk through for setting up and using the SOAPwareXchangeHL7.
Ensure the SOAPwareXchangeHL7 is Open and Started
The SOAPwareXchangeHL7 must be open in order to process results. You will also have to Click Start > Programs > SOAPwareXchange HL7 , in order to allow results to process into SOAPware. This requires you to enter your user ID and password, just as you would with SOAPware. If you turn off the computer where the HL7 is located, you must open it again once the computer has been restarted.
*Note: Both the SOAPwareXchangeHL7 and SOAPwareXchange may be setup to auto-start by following the instructions here.
Ensure the Source Folder is Set Correctly
The majority of HL7 interfaces will be via a FTP connection, meaning that the participating lab(s) will be delivering results to a shared folder, and this is often the same machine that the SOAPwareXchangeHL7 is installed on. Make sure the Source is selected and the port is set as 0. If you are not sure where the results are being delivered, contact your lab's technical support.
