HL7 healthcare information management using aspect-oriented programming
Given the heterogeneity of healthcare software systems, data from each system is often incompatible inhibiting interoperability. To enable the sharing and exchange of healthcare information interoperability standards must be adhered to. Health Level Seven (HL7) is the international standards organisation that promotes and enforces the standardisation of electronic healthcare information to facilitate its exchange and management. Incorporating HL7 functionality into existing applications requires significant modification and intrusive extensions. Using AspectOriented Programming (AOP), we can introduce HL7 functionality into existing applications without the requirement for refactoring or modification. HL7 data formatting affects multiple parts of an application and hence is a ”crosscutting concern”. These concerns which entwine with base functionality introduce complexity and reduce modularity. A second benefit of AOP is its advanced modularisation capabilities which are capabl...
