Healthcare Data Reporting*

Incoming test requests and outgoing test results to/from HORIZON are handled through HL7 messages. While HORIZON supports numerous report transmission methods (e.g., email, fax, teleprinter, FTP), most health-related data transmission depends on the HL7 messaging standard, and the ability for laboratories, healthcare providers, public health agencies, and the Centers for Disease Control to process these messages.

HL7 messages are received and transmitted using an automated process in HORIZON to monitor a specific set of ports. Message content is stored in the database; these original message segments can be viewed using HORIZON's HL7 Message Log viewer.
