Does anyone use EnsLib.ITK.DTS.Framework.Operation.DTSTransferFile ? and how id you manage the transition to MESH?

I just noticed this PR from 2011

https://www.intersystems.com/news-events/news/news-item/itk-2-0-0-compliance-for-intersystems-ensemble-makes-it-easier-and-cheaper-for-nhs-trusts-to-exchange-information/

which led me to this class EnsLib.ITK.DTS.Framework.Operation.DTSTransferFile 

Given this was 2011, and DTS (now called MESH) is widely used by GP practices , I'm hoping someone in the community used this class?

If so - how did you manage the transition to MESH in Jan-2017?

Hi Stephen,

We do have an update package that provides MESH support in place of the old DTS support. As with the old DTS, it uses the MESH client (rather than the MESH API). It provides you with full support for sending and receiving MESH messages. The package is provided as "sample" code, but it works well and is in use by a number of trusts. It comes with full documentation on installing and using the package.

If you could let me have your e-mail address and organisation, I would be happy to send you the package.

Hi Paul

We have similar requirement at East & North Hertfordshire NHS Trust. We would like to route HL7 v2.4 MDM messages to MESH. On a high level we are looking for following:-

1) Trust need to get a MESH server running, register with MESH etc..

 

2) Ensemble to Map MDM^T02 message content into “Kettering XML”

 

3) Ensemble puts KetteringXML file into a MESH “Data” file. Ensemble creates a MESH “ControlFile”

 

4) Drop Data file and Control File into MSH server outbox

 

5) Optionally check MESH Inbox folder for ACK messages

 

Wondering your package can help us to develop above in Ensemble\HealthShare? We would be doing the development work in HS 2017.2.

 

Thanks

Hi Raj,

I've just noticed your post. Apologies for the long delay! Please contact me directly if you are still interested in MESH for Health Connect. We now have a fully NHS Digital accredited direct interface to the MESH server.

Hi Joao,

Certainly! Please contact me directly with your e-mail address and organisation. We now have a fully NHS Digital accredited interface in Health Connect to the MESH Server, so you no longer need the MESH Client program.
