  • Description:
    The HL7 Batch Protocol may be employed by any implementation of HL7 messages to make messaging more efficient with the Public Health Information Network Messaging System (PHINMS). There are no restrictions on the types of messages sent in a particular batch.

    Due to size limitations on PHINMS, a single batch file should not exceed 10 Mb in size.

    The HL7 file header and trailer and the batch header and trailer segments are defined in exactly the same manner as the HL7 message segments; hence, the same HL7 message construction rules used for individual messages can be used to encode and decode HL7 batch files.
