Section 1d: Version 2 (V2)
HL7 Version 2.x Message Profiling Specification
The HL7 V2.x Message Profiling informative document (2000) provides a guideline for documenting particular uses of HL7 messages. A defined V2.x message profile will be registered with HL7 and may be reused by other HL7 users, moving the HL7 V2.x standard closer to "plug and play" interfaces. With consistent and complete documentation, HL7 V2.x interface partners will explicitly understand: (a) what data will be passed; (b) the format in which the data will be passed; and, (c) the acknowledgement responsibilities of the sender and receiver.
With consistent and complete V2.x Message Profile documentation, HL7 V2.x interface partners explicitly understand:
- What data will be passed
- The format in which the data will be passed
- The acknowledgement responsibilities of the sender and receiver.
