If transferring reports to a third-party application, UltraLinq offers several integration options. The Integration module is required for all integrations. Contact your account manager or Client Services for more information on the Integration module.
If your third-party application accepts HL7 messaging, UltraLinq can send an ORU message that includes a preliminary or final report. All HL7 messaging requires a VPN tunnel between UltraLinq's data center and your server.
UltraLinq supports the following integration methods for HL7 messaging:
- A text report included within the ORU message
- A base-64 encoded PDF encapsulated within the ORU message
- A PDF sent to a SFTP server maintained by the client with a file pointer included within the ORU message
Note: UltraLinq does not accept inbound HL7 messaging at this time. Any values required for filing an exam must be included with an exam's DICOM data (usually in the DICOM worklist) or entered manually within UltraLinq.
If your third-party application accepts PDF files, UltraLinq can send a PDF to a SFTP server maintained by the client. UltraLinq can customize the file path and file name based on any field populated from the UltraLinq application.
