The growth of information and communication technologies in healthcare means that computer-based patient record systems are becoming essential for hospital information systems. Such electronic patient record systems can improve the quality of patient healthcare, increase the efficiency of healthcare personnel and decrease financial costs. They should also be configured to comply with future changes in health technologies, policies, administration and finance, and have defined the criteria necessary for computer-based patient records.

Health information systems are generally limited to each hospital while aiming to achieve certain administrative objectives, such as patient admissions, inpatient monitoring, transfers, diagnostic exam requests, patient billing, and/or stock control. The strength of any institution, but particularly in healthcare, depends on effective communication.

HL7-ADT is an emerging standard of communications between hospital computer systems for maintaining the hospital bed occupancy. This standard was established by an organization of hospital computer system vendors. The organization published a document that fully describes the requirements of the standard. The HL7 standard itself has changed since its inception. The organization has been careful to maintain backward compatibility in succeeding versions of the standard.

Today’s talk covers the versions 2.2 and 2.3 of the standards. The full implementation of the HL7 standard is intended to support all data exchange in the healthcare environment. HL7-ADT requires a subset of the full implementation. Today’s topics will cover the followings: Hardware Architecture, HL7 Message Delivery Methods, HL7 Message Structure, HL7 Sample Messages.

3rd International Conference on Medical Devices, TIPCIH'2020, will be organized by Alanya Alaaddin Keykubat University (ALKU), Akdeniz University (Akdeniz U.), and Izmir Katip Celebi University (IKCU) with international participation on September 28-29, 2020 in Akdeniz University Adrasan Hotel, Kumluca, Antalya, Turkey. TIPCIH conferences bring together the students, users, manufacturers, researchers, and public representatives working in the field of medical device technologies. It also aims to share the information investigated from scientific researchs on the medical fields, and propose common communication platform to solve specific problems on the medical device sectors. Main conference languages are Turkish and English.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least 2 referees from the Scientific Committee members who are experts in the related field. Accepted full-length, 4-page papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings Book with ISBN and extended versions of these papers will be published in International Journals (possibly not indexed in SCI, SCI-E, and ULAKBIM-TR, but in other indexes).
