The Role of Profiles
In Caristix software, profiles serve as interface documentation. The Document Library is a repository for all interface specifications: HL7 reference specifications (which come built into Caristix Conformance software), product specifications, and specifications for the customized mapping and configuration that must occur for working interfaces as well as any other type of documentation file.
There are several ways to create a profile or specification:
- Recommended: reverse-engineer a profile from an HL7 message log
- Create a profile based on an HL7 reference
- Create a profile from message elements
- Import a profile from another user
