This is a collection of articles, downloads and resources for using BizTalk Server with HL7 Version 2 and Version 3:
HL7 Version 2.x
This document provides detailed procedures for deploying network, hardware, and software requirements to support health care transactions that comply with the HL7 standards.
The Clinical Systems Integration reference implementation for Microsoft® Office 2003 contains sample code, templates, and guidelines to demonstrate the possibilities in addressing critical business issues with the Microsoft BizTalk Server, HL7 Accelerator and Office System.
This document describes how to deploy and configure the sample HL7 Management Pack (MOM Pack). It also describes the integration of Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 (BTAHL7) 1.0 Windows Performance Counters and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) events with Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 (MOM).

The BizTalk Accelerator for HL7 1.0 product documentation update replaces your existing BTAHL7 1.0 Help with an updated version.
This white paper discusses how the Microsoft® BizTalk® Server 2004 platform is a cornerstone for enabling this “foundation of facts” necessary for today’s dynamic hospital environment. This is accomplished through use of BizTalk Server 2004, Microsoft BizTalk Accelerator for HL7, and the Business Activity Monitoring (BAM) capabilities of BizTalk Server.
HL7 Version 3.0
This document intends to provide designers and developers of Healthcare Solutions with a reference architecture/implementation that enables information exchange among Healthcare applications on a Web Services Platform, in conformance with HL7 specification and Web Services Profiles.
The paper deals with enabling applications to interface with the Web Service Infrastructure, designing Web Services following a Contract First Approach, automating code production based on formal specification of Message Types and Application to Application Interactions that are also relevant even outside the specific Healthcare scope.
With Microsoft® BizTalk® Accelerator for HL7 (BTAHL7), Microsoft BizTalk Server 2004 handles all V2.x HL7 processing needs. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate how V3 HL7 processing can be implemented with BizTalk Server natively. Then, together with BTAHL7, this paper and its included BizTalk Server artifacts will demonstrate how BizTalk Server can handle the most common type of V3 HL7 integration need, that of converting V3 HL7 data to V2.x HL7 data.
A Software Factory Approach To HL7 Version 3 Solutions (Building Distributed Applications)
This white paper, developed by Microsoft in collaboration with Blueprint Technologies [BPT] as part of Microsoft's Health Level 7 (HL7) Software Factory initiative, presents a vision for a software factory in the context of Health Level Seven Version 3 (V3).
