31001 : LBL Request Mode For Labeling Instruction (for Label Broker)

This test concerns the LB (Label Broker) actor. You will need to communicate with the LBL Simulator, in order to simulate the LAB-61 transaction of the LBL Profile.

Instructions

Access the LBL Simulator tool at this location : LBL Simulator
If it is your first time with this tool, please read the user manual : LBL Simulator User Manual
Please be remind that if you are logged in your configurations will be private.

In this test, the SUT (System Under Test) must received the labeling instructions from the LBL Simulator.

As the SUT implements the LB (LB acts as a responder in this test) :

  1. Create or update the configuration corresponding to the SUT.
  2. Then, go to the "Simulators" menu entry and choose "LIP" page to begin the test. Select the "LAB-61 Transaction" tab.
  3. In the SUT Configurations drop-down list, select the SUT configuration.
  4. Once you have selected the patient, hit the "Send" button. The LBL Simulator will send the message to the SUT with the labeling instructions.
  5. Check the simulator has properly received your acknowledgement message.

The messages exchanged between the simulator and the SUT can be found in the message table on the very same page or from the HL7 Message menu entry.
Hit the link on the left side  of the raw (first column of the table), to display the Permanent Link to the test report for the corresponding HL7 message. (You can access to the hl7v2 report tutorial for more details.)
If the validation report status is passed for the message and the response, copy the "test result link" and paste it in Gazelle as the result of this test.
For further details, see this tutorial : How enter your pre-connectathon test result in Gazelle (only for the LAW, LCSD and LBL Profiles of the Laboratory Domain which send HL7v2 messages)?

Evaluation

  • The validation status must be passed for the two messages of the transaction. The message type must be the right message type, according to IHE.
  • The Acknowledgment code must be "AA" (MSA-1) in the acknowledgment message.

31002 : LBL Request Mode For Labeling Instruction (for Label Information Provider)

This test concerns only the LIP (Label Information Provider) actor. You will need to communicate with the LBL Simulator, in order to simulate
the LAB-61 transaction of the LBL Profile.

Instructions

Access the LBL Simulator tool at this location : LBL Simulator
If it is your first time with this tool, please read the user manual : LBL Simulator User Manual
Please be remind that if you are logged in your configurations will be private.

In this test, the SUT (System Under Test) must send the labeling instructions to the LBL Simulator.

As the implements the LIP (LIP acts as an initiator in this test) :

  1. Don't need to create a SUT configuration for your system. Just go to the "Simulators" menu entry and choose "LB" page to begin your test.
  2. Select the "LAB-61 Transaction" tab.
  3. In the charset drop-down list, select the desired charset.
  4. Use the Ip Address and the Port linked to this charset to send your message with the labeling instructions to the LBL Simulator.
  5. Don't forget to hit the "Refresh List" button after to have send your message.
  6. Check the simulator has properly received and acknowledged your message.

The messages exchanged between the simulator and the SUT can be found in the message table on the very same page or from the HL7 Message menu entry.
Hit the link on the left side of the raw (first column of the table), to display the Permanent Link to test report for the corresponding HL7 message. (You can access to the hl7v2 report tutorial for more details.)
If the validation report status is passed for the message and the response, copy the "test result link" and paste it in the comment section of the pre-connectathon log return page as the result for this test.
For further details, see this tutorial : How enter your pre-connectathon test result in Gazelle (only for the LAW, LCSD and LBL Profiles of the Laboratory Domain which send HL7v2 messages)?

31003 : LBL Query Mode For Labeling Instruction (for Label Information Provider)

This test concerns only the LIP (Label Information Provider) actor. You will need to communicate with the LBL Simulator, in order to simulate
the LAB-62 transaction of the LBL Profile.

Instructions


Access the LBL Simulator tool at this location : LBL Simulator
If it is your first time with this tool, please read the user manual : LBL Simulator User Manual
Please be remind that if you are logged in your configurations will be private. Requirements :

As your system implements the LIP (LIP acts as a responder in this test) :

  1. Create or update the configuration corresponding to the SUT (System Under Test).
  2. Then, go to the "Simulators" menu entry and choose "LB" page to begin your test.
  3. Select the "LAB-62 Transaction" tab. In the SUT Configurations drop-down list, select your LB system.
  4. In order to construct your request, you will need to fill the request parameters table. You will find all information in the SUT system.

In this test, you must use the LBL Simulator to query the SUT. Send severals messages using different parameters. All (Required) possibilities are defined in the steps below :

  • Step 1 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using the patient ID.
  • Step 2 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using the Placer Visit Number.
  • Step 3 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using the Placer Group Number.
  • Step 4 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using the Placer Order Number.
  • Step 5 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using the Filler Order Number.
  • Step 6 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using the search period and patient id.
  • Step 7 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using the search period and patient visit number.
  • Step 8 : Label Broker (Simulator) queries the Label Information Provider (SUT) using a patient ID which is unknown by the LIP. (This is an error case, to test the answer of your LIP in this situation.)

Take an example, for the step 1 :

  1. In the request parameters table, fill the Patient ID field with a patient ID from you SUT.
  2. Then hit the "Send" button. 3.The LBL Simulator will send the message to your system and will get a response (if the SUT answers).
  3. Check the simulator has properly received your acknowledgement message.
  4. The messages exchanged between the simulator and the SUT can be found in the message table on the very same page or from the HL7 Message menu entry. Hit the link on the left side of the raw (first column of the table), to display the Permanent Link to test report for the corresponding HL7 message. (You can access to the hl7v2 report tutorial for more details.)
    If the validation report status is passed for the message and the response, copy the "test result link" and paste it in the comment section of the pre-connectathon log return page as the result for this test. For further details, see this tutorial : How enter your pre-connectathon test result in Gazelle (only for the LAW, LCSD and LBL Profiles of the Laboratory Domain which send HL7v2 messages) ?
