Mirth is an open source cross-platform HL7 interface engine that enables bi-directional sending of HL7 messages between systems and applications over multiple transports. By utilizing an enterprise service bus framework and a channel-based architecture, Mirth allows messages to be filtered, transformed, and routed based on user-defined rules. Creating HL7 interfaces for existing systems becomes easy using the web-based interface and channel creation wizard which associates applications with Mirth engine components.
Mirth is free to use with no license or royalty fees. In addition, the Mirth File Repository provides an assortment of tested interfaces for a variety of health-care systems that can be downloaded and installed into Mirth free-of-charge.
Mirth can be configured to listen and send HL7 messages and connect to a variety of protocols:
* Database (MYSQL, Postgres, Oracle, MS SQL, ODBC)
* File (local file system and network shares)/PDF
* SOAP (over HTTP)
their open architecture allows for the easy addition of custom and legacy interfaces.
