Quick learning and simple to install LINKMED® IE supports all widely used interface messaging standards: HL7, XML, DICOM, ASCII, CSV, SQL and User-defined. This cost-effective integration suite allows Developers, Vendors, Consultants, and Hospital IT Personnel to efficiently and effectively create and manage their HL7 and DICOM interfaces.
A Complete Healthcare Interface Solutions In-A-Box.


HL7 Communication Drivers


LINKMEDs® IE HL7 TCP/IP Communication Drivers communicate with remote system through TCP/IP socket connections. HL7 messages can be wrapped using HL7 MLLP protocols or user-defined protocols (headers and trailers).
LINKMED® IE HL7 TCP/IP Communication Drivers can send and receive information in virtually any formats over any protocols, effectively bridging other systems with the LINKMED® Interface environment.


LMTCPIPRX LINKMED® HL7 TCP/IP Receiver:
  • Accepts all HL7 message types and automatically validates and sends standard HL7 message acknowledgements back to client(s).
  • Accepts multiple connections on the same port and route messages to user-defined destinations.
  • Accepts HL7 query messages and sends HL7 query response messages.
  • Can be configured for application level message validation.
  • Built-in firewall allows the receiver to accept message from allowed IP address only.
  • Can be configured to receive non-HL7 message sends via TCP/IP user-defined protocols such as: Words or PDF documents.
  • Reads, Writes and filters HL7 messages to SQL database or any other database types.
  • Runs unobstructively as service.

  • LMTCPIPTX LINKMED® HL7 TCP/IP Transmitter:
  • Sends HL7 result and query messages.
  • Receives HL7 acknowledgements and HL7 query response.
  • Can be configured to send message parameter (length and size of encoding HL7 message) prior to sending actual HL7 message.
  • Automatically re-send message if no acknowledgement is received and can be configured to remove error message out of the sender's queue.
  • Can also be configured to send non-HL7 message via TCP/IP user-defined protocols such as Words or PDF documents.

  • Inbound interface workflows

    HIS/EMR sends HL7 messages ---> LINKMED® IE HL7 TCP/IP Receiver ---> LINKMED® IE Interface ---> Parsed HL7 to Vendor's System (Vendor's file Format)

    Outbound Interface workflows

    Vendor's System creates study result --> LINKMED® IE Interface ---> HL7 result messages ---> LINKMED® IE HL7 TCP/IP Transmitter ---> HIS/EMR systems

    LMMPR LINKMED® Dynamic Message Mapper

    Messaging and Mapping tools uses for system's integration and data exchange between system. Users use LINKMED® Mapper to create interfaces for their applications or systems. The Mapper is designed for a short learning curve and required no programming skill.

    LINKMED® Dynamic Message Mapper Features

  • Native support for standard HL7 version 2.x and HL7 version 3 (when available), also support other standard messaging format such as: XML, ASTM, ASCII, CSV, NVP, SQL and user- defined.

  • Graphical user interface (GUI) allows user to visually learn its functionalities for creating interface template.

  • Mapping data from one messaging format to virtually any another format including the "What you want" format.

  • Built-in HL7 message library (All HL7 Version 2.xx).

  • Supports new HL7 ASTM CCR and latest HL7 CDA.

  • Built-in an internal intermediate database for storing un-needed data but needed to re-create HL7 result messages to send back to the HIS/EMR systems when a bi-directional interface is required.


  • Once the interface templates had been created, users can re-use them in other similar interface setting at different site. This design provides user with time saving by avoiding to re-create the "Interface Template" from scratch.
