Integrated Hex Viewer/Editor

Integrated Hex Viewer/Editor


View HL7 message files in HEX. This might be the greatest tool you never knew you needed. The most common problem HL7 specialists report to us about HL7 messages they receive for testing or certification is that they are corrupted in some manner. Usually it's because the HL7 standard segment delimiter has been changed from a Carriage Return (Hex 0D) to a Carriage Return Line Feed (Hex 0D + Hex 0A). This usually happens because someone gets the bright idea of actually EDITING the HL7 message using Notepad or WordPad or some other inferior text editor.

Correct segment delimiter problems immediately and keep going.

Great for determining if your file is REALLY HL7 or just something that looks like HL7, smells like HL7 but really isn't HL7.
