Solutions

  • Object Identifier (OID)
  • WebHook Notifications
  • TermWorks
  • Registre FHIR Canadien
  • InfoScribe
  • Terminology Gateway
  • HAPI v2
  • Message ReMixer
  • Terminology Service API

  • Message Builder
  • HAPI FHIR
  • InfoRMS

Pan-Canadian Standards use Object Identifiers (OIDs) to distinguish between objects by assigning a numeric string that enables other systems to understand the unique information that is being shared between various systems.

Canada Health Infoway has an arrangement in place with HL7 International that allows Infoway to submit OIDs to HL7 International on behalf of Canadian Implementers free of charge (normally $100 USD fee per OID request).

Automated notifications of new content in Terminology Gateway

A WebHook is an HTTP callback. When new content is published in the Terminology Gateway, a publishing event will be POSTed to each registered WebHook, notifying their respective owners about the publication.

WebHook registration

Individual users can register for WebHook notifications by sending an email to: Cette adresse courriel est protégée contre les robots spammeurs. Vous devez activer le JavaScript pour la visualiser. and specifying the WebHook endpoint. Upon registration, a unique api_id will be assigned to the WebHook. Each notification POSTed by the Terminology Gateway will contain the api_id, allowing the endpoint to verify that the notification was indeed issued by the Terminology Gateway. The api_id must be echoed back by the WebHook endpoint in the body of the notification response.

WebHook interface

The WebHook endpoint must serve HTTP requests conforming to the following interface:

HTTP Request

{
  "api_id": "cb570e5a2748f349f9119431db836b3a23fdb6571afee34c0432d87220f2431b",
  "base_url": "https://termapi.infoway-inforoute.ca/rest/v1/",
  "notification_time": "2017110711:07:00",
  "targets": [
    {
      "id": "2.16.840.1.113883.2.20.6.1",
      "name": "Canadian Clinical Drug Data Set (CCDD)",
      "type": "package",
      "version": "20171016",
      "effective_date": "20171016",
      "publication_time": "2017103015:20:23",
      "message": "Monthly CCDD update for October 2017"
    },
    {
      "id": "2.16.840.1.113883.2.20.3.443",
      "name": "PrescribeIT",
      "type": "package",
      "version": "LPR2",
      "effective_date": "20171103",
      "publication_time": "2017110309:37:22",
      "message": "PrescriptionMedicinalCode version reflecting the October 2017 CCDD update"
    }
  ]
}
				
  • api_id: as previously mentioned, each notification POST contains the api_id granted at registration.
  • base_url: the base URL for the native REST API endpoint of the originating system. This can be used to call back the Terminology Gateway via APIs in order to programmatically download updated content.
  • notification_time: the timestamp of the WebHook notification in yyyyMMddHH:mm:ss format.
  • targets: list of updated targets. Each entry in this array corresponds to a Terminology Gateway artifact (subset, codesystem, map, package) that was updated and is therefore subject to the notification. The target list will only include artifacts for which the user has registered to receive notifications. Users can register to receive notifications about content updates using the Terminology Gateway User Interface or by invoking the native REST APIs.

    Each of the notification targets contains the following fields:
    • id: the artifact id, typically an OID
    • name: the artifact name
    • type: the artifact type: subset, codesystem, package or map
    • version: the published version id
    • effective_date: the effective date associated to the artifact version, in yyyyMMdd format
    • publication_time: the publication time in yyyyMMddHH:mm:ss format
    • message: optional message describing the published artifact version

HTTP Request

HTTP Response code: 200 for success, any other response code will be interpreted as an error
Sample HTTP Response Body:

{
  "api_id": "cb570e5a2748f349f9119431db836b3a23fdb6571afee34c0432d87220f2431b",
  "result": "success",
  "message": "Successful processing of the WebHook notification"
}
  • api_id: as previously mentioned, each notification response must echo back the api_id granted at registration.
  • result: success if the web hook notification was successful, any other value will be interpreted as an error.
  • message: optional response message.


Error handling

When receiving an error as a result of a WebHook notification, the Terminology Gateway will retry the notification four times at 15 minutes intervals. If still unsuccessful after four notification attempts, the system will drop the notification and will notify the user by email that the WebHook couldn't be invoked.

Sample code

Demo code for a sample WebHook endpoint can be found here:

Des exigences cliniques aux spécifications

Le Cadre de sélection des normes permet à ses utilisateurs de planifier, de choisir et de documenter des solutions d’interopérabilité depuis l’étape du concept jusqu’à celle de l’implantation. À partir des exigences cliniques établies par les cliniciens jusqu’aux exigences administratives, en passant par les normes et les spécifications techniques, le Cadre se veut un guide complet sur toutes les étapes de la création de solutions d’interopérabilité.

Le Cadre donne aussi à la communauté d’InfoCentral une occasion d’échanger sur les projets d’implantation fructueux, le choix des normes effectué à un moment précis d’un projet et les spécifications qui en ont résulté. La publication des solutions à cet endroit permettra la mise sur pied d’un répertoire de référence canadien.

clinical requirements

Exigences Cliniques décrivent les besoins en information et en déroulement du travail du clinicien pour une situation clinique particulière et pour l’échange de données cliniques. À partir des principes de l’interopérabilité clinique, on utilise un ensemble d’exigences exprimées par les cliniciens pour mettre sur pied une solution d’interopérabilité bien conçue.

business requirements

Exigences Administratives sont établies d’après les exigences cliniques et procurent une image complète de la solution à mettre au point. Des cas d’utilisation, des règles administratives et des conseils sont aussi donnés en référence pour permettre une modélisation complète de la solution.

standards selection

Sélection des Normes désigne le processus établi pour guider les équipes dans les diverses étapes de la sélection de la terminologie et des normes de messagerie. À l’aide du sujet de la requête et des diverses considérations contenues dans les formulaires fournis, les équipes d’implantation peuvent évaluer les normes accessibles et déterminer le meilleur choix ponctuel. Le processus permet aussi à la communauté d’InfoCentral d’échanger sur les projets d’implantation fructueux, ce qui favorise la normalisation par la réutilisation.

standards

Normes afont partie intégrante de la solution d’interopérabilité; elles touchent tant la terminologie, qui définit les données envoyées, que les structures de messagerie, qui définissent comment ces données sont envoyées. Le cadre fournit les critères d’accès aux normes internationales et canadiennes, ainsi que les critères d’examen en vue de faciliter l’implantation.

specifications

Spécifications procurent les détails de la solution à implanter. Ces détails comprennent : un examen des éléments de données utilisés, des échantillons des messages transférés, l’architecture du système et les spécifications de sécurité, dont l’autorisation et l’authentification.

Enhanced browsing of HL7 v3

Infoway HL7 Explorer is a powerful browser for HL7 v3 structures, vocabulary and references. Used in conjunction with the pan-Canadian releases, HL7 Explorer makes locating details and information more efficient.

In November 2017, the Canadian HL7 InfoCentral community determined that there was no longer any need to do further updates to the pan-Canadian Version 3 messages. As a result, the December 2012 releases of MR02.06.01 and CeRx 4.4.2 are the latest pan-Canadian publications of these standardized messages.

The HL7 Explorer, the Master Terminology Worksheet (MTW) and all other messaging related artifacts are aligned with the latest releases.
