Build Status Coverage Status

This is a simple HL7 builder.

Setup

  • npm install
  • npm install -g grunt-cli

Usage

var Builder = require('./app');

var message = new Builder.Message({
    messageType: 'ADT',     // Required
    messageEvent: 'A03',    // Required
    eventSegment: true,
    delimiters: {
        segment: '\n'
        // field, component, repeat, escape, subComponent (unused)
    },
    sendingApplication: 'Builder',
    sendingFacility: 'UnitA',
    receivingApplication: 'Consumer',
    receivingFacility: 'UnitB',
    messageId: Math.floor((Math.random() * 1000) + 1),
    version: '2.3'          // Default: 2.3
});

var pid = new Builder.Segment('PID');

// Add fields with a single component
pid.set(3, '234234');
pid.set(18, '55555');

// Add field with multiple components
var address = new Builder.Field();
address.set(0, '0000 main street');
address.set(2, 'Last Vegas');
address.set(3, 'NV');
address.set(4, '12345');

// Add a repeat inside a field
address.repeat();
address.set(0, '1111 alternate street');
address.set(2, 'Last Vegas');
address.set(3, 'NV');
address.set(4, '12345');

pid.set(11, address);

var pv1 = new Builder.Segment('PV1');
pv1.set(1, 'Testable');

message.add(pid);
message.add(pv1);

// Getters
console.log(address.get(0));        // 1111 alternative street
console.log(address.get(0, 0));     // 1234 main street
console.log(pid.get(3));            // 234234

// toStrings
console.log(address.toString());    // 0000 main street^Last Vegas^NV^12345~1111 alternate street^Last Vegas^NV^12345
console.log(pv1.toString());        // PV1|Testable
console.log(message.toString());    // MSH|.....

// Create an L7 query object
var parsedMessage = message.toQuery();
console.log(parsedMessage.query('PID|3'));

    • field - |
    • component - ^
    • repeat - ~
    • escape - \
    • subComponent - &
  • sendingApplication - App that sent the message
  • sendingFacility - Facility that sent the message
  • receivingApplication - App that should receive the message
  • receivingFacility - Facility that should receive the message
  • messageId - Unique message identifier. default: Math.floor((Math.random() * 1000) + 1)
  • version - HL7 version, Default: 2.3

Builder.Segment(segmentName)

get(index [,repeatDelimiter[,componentDelimiter[,subComponentDelimiter]]])

Gets a field at index (number) with optional delimiters.

getName()

Returns the segment name.

toString(delimiters)

Returns the segment as a string with optional delimiters.

Builder.Field(length)

Creates a new HL7 field builder with an optional length.

set(location, data)
