Innovation Lab Webex - October 31st @ noon

Join us on October 31st at noon for a walk-through of the Innovation Lab with a focus on how Health Level Seven's Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (HL7®FHIR®) standard is enabling data exchange through the use of modern web service application programming interfaces (APIs). We will provide an explanation of what APIs are, why FHIR APIs differ from previous HL7 v2.x integrations within the healthcare space, and a demo of eHealth Ontario's Innovation Lab.

Please register for the webinar here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/using-hl7-fhir-to-enable-digital-health-information-in-ontario-tickets-75714964497

We look forward to your participation!

ONE Access Gateway Transport webinar October 24th, 2019 12:00-1:00 pm

On October 24th, 2019 join us for the ONE Access Gateway Transport webinar.

eHealth Ontario is developing a new specification to support applications access to EHR data through the Application Program Interfaces (APIs) published via the ONE Access Provider Gateway. ONE Access Provider Gateway is a modernized platform for enabling the integration of provider facing applications with provincial clinical repositories and registries in a secure and reliable manner. The ONE Access Provider Gateway will support authorized provider applications to access provincial clinical repositories, which contain information from various domains, such as Laboratory, Medication, Diagnostic Imaging, Immunization and Acute and Community Care data. It will also support access to provincial registries data contained in the Provincial Client Registry (PCR), and Provincial Provider Registry (PPR) in a secure and reliable manner.

Service Availability

What expectancy should we have that the lite services will be up and available normally unless otherwise noted? For example, should we base commonly run tests off of these calls?

DHIR Lite Issue

Public OIID sample for DHIR doesn't appear to be working. In the "send lite message utility" I simply get "A problem was encountered when processing the request. Please contact the administrator." and when performing the call myself, all requests are returned 403.

Is there an issue there currently?

Incorrect Service Agreement Links

The Service Agreement Status links are wrong. The Test Harness "send lite message utility" uses the value "https://innovation-lab.ca/media/1147/innovation-lab-terms-of-use.pdf" where as the links are to "https://www.innovation-lab.ca/media/1147/innovation-lab-terms-of-use.pdf". If you use the latter, then you get the message:

{
"resourceType": "OperationOutcome",
"id": "validationFail",
"meta": "",
"text": {
    "status": "generated",
    "div": "Request failed validation. You have not adhered to our message specification regarding the license agreement acknowledgement. See here: https://innovation-lab.ca/using-sender-identifiers"
},
"issue": [{
        "severity": "error",
        "code": "value",
        "details": {
            "text": "Request failed validation. You have not adhered to our message specification regarding the license agreement acknowledgement. See here: https://innovation-lab.ca/using-sender-identifiers"
        },
        "diagnostics": null,
        "location": null
    }
]
}

(which doesn't seem to properly confirm to OperationOutcome as per the FHIR spec). If the only difference is the inclusion or exclusion of "www", shouldn't this be more forgiving and shouldn't the links on the test harness page match through the tests?

Submitting OLIS messages in production

https://www.innovation-lab.ca/submitting-olis-messages/

What exactly should I use to digitally sign my hl7 request? In the above link, it says "Digitally sign the Request message using a PKCS#7 format signature using a cryptographic toolkit.", but no specifics on which PKCS signature I should use to sign. Thanks in advance.

I have tried a few ways to sign the message. I have tried to use OpenSSL to sign the request message (datafile) with a combination of my private key and the certificate.pem (keyandcertfile) with the following command:

openssl cms -in datafile -sign -signer keyandcertfile -nodetach -outform pem|der

I then used the output of that file, base64 encode that and then send the request to the endpoint with no luck.

EDIT: The server is now responding with Unsupported Message Type (HL7 Error #200) with this HL7 message:

MSH|^~\&|^2.16.840.1.113883.3.59.1:4004^ISO|194cd1ca-da5f-4c23-a324-87a44f67c6a0|^OLIS^X500||200506 01134500-0400||SPQ^Z01^SPQQ08|5b6046b3-54e9-4f24-8e8d-f784d283d41b|P|2.3.1||||||8859/1 ZSH|123976456|John Henry Everyman SPR|QRYTAG123|R|ZQryLabInfoForPatientID^^HL70471|@OBR.22^20020101000000-0400~@PID.3.1^6948425589~@PID.8^F~@PID.7^19940115~@ZRP.1.1^926279~@ZRP.1.13^MDL~@ZRP.1.22.1^ON~@ZRP.1.22.3^HL70347~@ZRP.1.2^Richards~@ZRP.1.3^Reed~@ZRP.1.4
