The set of HL7 conformance profiles available in Gazelle has been enriched with conformance profiles for the messages defined 

  • by the HL7v2.5.1 option of the SWF profile (OMG, OMI)
  • by the XPID integration profile

Conformance profiles are XML files which are used for validating the HL7v2.x messages produced by your system. You can either 

  • use the EVSClient tool from the Gazelle platform to run the validation
  • download the conformance profiles you are interested in from the GazelleHL7v2Validator tool

Do not hesitate to report any issue into our bug tracking system: Access JIRA

The PatientManager tool from the Gazelle platform has been enriched with a new feature. You will now be able to test your PIX systems against a simulator. Actually, the PatientManager tool now integrates the three actors defined in this profile and is able to act as one of them in the transactions defined by the Patient Identifier Cross-referencing (PIX) integration profile:
  • Patient Identity Management (ITI-30)

Since release 6.0-RC2, the Gazelle PatientManager tool is able to act as an ADT actor. That means that you can receive ADT feeds from the tool in the context of the RAD-1 and RAD-12 transactions. Note that the HL7v2.5.1 option is not yet implemented.

To proceed, register your system under test (Order Filler, Order Placer, Image Manager, Report Manager, MPI...) as an ADT Client under the SUT Configurations menu.

Access the tool...

Gazelle team would like to inform you that a new release of the PatientManager is now available online at http://gazelle.ihe.net/PatientManager

You can now enter the configuration of your PIX consumer and PIX cross-reference manager actors to receive messages from Gazelle. Under the PIX menu you will access the three actors defined by the PIX specifications:

  • Patient Identity Source can send all the messages defined in the ITI-30 (Patient Identification Management) and ITI-8 (Patient Identity Feed) transactions
  • Patient Identity Consumer can send QPD messages in the context of the ITI-9 transaction
  • Patient Identity Cross-Reference Manager can send PIX update notifications (ITI-10)

Note that the responder parts have not been implemented yet, this will be part of another release of the application in the coming weeks.

We have refined the user interface of the Order Manager tool. All domains are now available in the top menu bar, there is no need to select the IHE domain anymore. In a given domain, you will find a menu entry for each actor that this tool can emulate. This will give you access to its configuration as a HL7 responder/DICOM SCP and to the page to configure the messages to send. You will also find an entry called "Data browser" for each actor; this is the link to access the list of orders, procedures, patients... owned by this actor.

Note to the senders of HL7 messages: Each actor is now listening on a single port which supports most of the  character set encodings defined by HL7.

Note to the users of the worklist: you can now consult the logs of the wlmscpfs tool directly through the user interface; go to Radiology (or Eye care) / Worklists / Worklists query logs.

Note to the ADT's developers: Radiology and Eye care Order Filler, Order Placer and Image Manager can now handle some ADT messages defined in RAD-1 and RAD-12 transactions:

If you were using the HL7v2 conformance profiles available on the INRIA's forge and maintained by both IHE-Europe and NIST, be aware that the tree of the project has changed. The current versions of the profiles are now located at svn://scm.gforge.inria.fr/svnroot/gazelle/Data/trunk.

After each testing session, a new tag will be created containing a snapshot of the conformance profiles like they were used during the event (including issues fixed during the session). A first tag is available following the Eye care connectathon at svn://scm.gforge.inria.fr/svnroot/gazelle/Data/tags/EYECARE2012.

A new release of Demographic Data Server is now available. 

The project has been moved to a Maven architecture. No new features by now but a new skin (similar to Gazelle's simulators) and a new URL to access the web service: http://jumbo.irisa.fr:8080/DDS-DemographicDataServer-ejb/DemographicDataServerBean?wsdl. The Apache redirection to access this web service has been updated so you can use: http://gazelle.ihe.net/DDSWS/DemographicDataServerBean?wsdl in order to be sure to always point to the right location.

The application remains available at http://gazelle.ihe.net/DDS

The Order Manager tool has been configured in order to be part of a Eye care workflow. That means that you are now allowed to select the Eye care domain (drop-down box at bottom-right of the home page). In this configuration, the simulated actors (Order Filler, Order Placer and Image/Report Manager) will use the codes defined for the Eye care domain.

Ordering codes are available there in a SVS format: http://gazelle.ihe.net/RetrieveValueSet?id=

The Order hierarchy used to schedule procedures for a given ordering code is available there: http://gazelle.ihe.net/examples/orderHierarchy-EYE2012.xml

15 Oct 2012

A new implementation of the Patient Demographic Supplier actor from the Patient Demographics Query integration profile is now included and available in the PatientManager tool.

This new feature will allow you to test the capability of your PDQ Patient Demographic Consumer to properly query a PDS. For information about the supported query parameters and the mapping performed with the simulator database read documentation at http://gazelle.ihe.net/content/patient-manager-pdq-patient-demographics-supplier.

Configure your SUT to reach our endpoint: IP address, port and receiving application/facility are available here.
