HL7 Gateway enables interoperability among Hospital Information Systems either medical or administrative.
It is a flexible software allowing communication between two or more information systems of either the same or different manufacturers. The software undertakes the transport of the necessary data from one platform to the other in real time. The operation is transparent to the user, who simply notices the existence of the data concerning him, in his own application. It supports unidirectional and bidirectional interconnection of messages between the two information systems. The ‘HL7 Gateway’ software allows the interconnection of different systems and the exchange of the necessary data between them.
An illustrating example is the exchange of patient data between a Laboratory Information System (LIS) and a Hospital Information System (HIS). The ‘HL7 Gateway’ middleware undertakes the automatic transport of patients’ data and the ordered tests between HIS and LIS. After the completion of the tests in the laboratories, it supports E.M.R to display, at any request of a clinician, the patient tests results.
The competence in integration profiles and standards allows to provide suitable tools to all those healthcare stakeholders that want to manage information flows between different applications, through Interoperability platform ‘HL7 Gateway’.
CCS has implement many type of such interconnections either by the use of HL7 protocol or by tailored software development, depending on the capabilities of applications to be connected.
In order to deliver truly patient-centered integrated care, we need integrated information management and technology.
In short, connected health is better health.

HL7-Hellas is an affiliate of HL7 International.
HL7-Hellas is a non-profit organization established to actively promote HL7 standards both within the Greek territory and in countries of South-Eastern Europe. Its aim is to spread reliable standards for healthcare data exchange, management and integration of data related to patient clinical care as well as the management, evaluation and further development of the HL7 standard protocols.
HL7-Hellas encourages the creation of flexible standards, guidelines, methodologies, protocols and other related services and products which will be based on those of the HL7 International Organisation. The main goal is to enable the interoperability of information systems in Health & Social Security. It helps both in the preparation of studies and research for the exchange of patients medical records hospitalized in institutions that adopt these standards, as well as in communication. Finally, HL7 Hellas aims to continuously research for further development related to the improvement of the standards.
