HL7 library for Ruby Released

Mark Guzman over at Tech Addict just announced the 0.1.23 release of an HL7 parser for Ruby. I’ve been doing a bunch of Rails stuff lately and this should come in handy when I need HL7 parsing. I haven’t tried it out yet, but here’s what Mark said is in there:

  • Flexible parsing support
  • MLLP support
  • Provides a simple DSL (domain specific language) for defining segments (Ruby style)
  • Allows for arbitrary manipulation of segment data
  • Automatic segment ordering (via sort)
  • Familiar Ruby Array/Enumerable semantics

How to get it:

gem install ruby-hl7

or grab the tarball from http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=3261
