Sectra Ltd., Milton Keynes, United Kingdom, builds on their relationship with MDI Solutions by contracting with MDI to provide HL7 and database integration services in Scotland.

MDI is currently completing a multi-site PACS migration to Sectra’s PACS system for NIPACS (the Northern Ireland PACS project). Based on the initial success of this project, MDI have been contracted to develop an HL7 Reports interface between Sectra’s RIS and a Misys Data Repository at Dr. Gray’s Hospital in Elgin.

Currently, the Misys Repository cannot accept repeating segments (occurs when multiple exams are linked to the same report) and expects one message per exam. Utilizing the data manipulation capability of their integration engine, MD Link, MDI technical resources will convert each ‘repeating segment’ into an ‘Unsolicited HL7 Lab Result’ message, which will then update the Misys data repository.
