Welcome to the NHapi project.
NHapi is a port of the original project HAPI.
NHapi allows Microsoft .NET developers to easily use an HL7 2.x object model. This object model allows for parsing and encoding HL7 2.x data to/from Pipe Delmimited or XML formats. A very handy program for use in the health care industry.
This project is NOT affiliated with the HL7 organization. This software just conforms to the HL7 2.x specifications.
NHapi was developed for use by the COHIE (Colorado Health Information Exchange) project. Once developed, we quickly found many other uses for it.
Developed with the help of EMC2 and University of Colorado Hospital
Current StatusWe are currently trying to develop the NHapi 1.0 release. This release will only be compatible with Microsoft .NET 2.0. This is because we have swapped out some ArrayLists for Generics internally. However, it wouldn't be that difficult to back port to .NET 1.1. We just didn't want to have to maintain a 1.1 version since we all seem to be using 2.0.
