We are slowly converting our interfaces one at a time from our current interface engine to MIRTH. We found that Mirth does everything our current engine and more, plus it does it faster and runs on more recent OS releases. Here's a comparison:
Has DICOM send/receive
Will run on Windows 2008
Will run with virus checker on
Fast Monitor
Fast Builder
Good Alert System

Current Engine
No DICOM send/receive
Won't run on Windows 2008
Won't run with virus checker on
slow Monitor
slow Builder
poor Alert System

I'm sure we will find more good things about Mirth. You guys have done a dynamite job developing a robust, fast, and high-quality interface engine. Thank you for all your hard work!

We haven't started using Mirth for HL7 purposes yet. I use Mirth to process a daily ascii file drop to a db and create a Excel2003 format xml spreadsheet from custom javascript transformers (would love some help making that better with some sort of openxml plugin and/or including compression to make a msexcel2007 format). Also use Mirth to read a database and create and email a custom html report (using FOR XML command on a MSSQL2005 db)

panickc is an unknown quantity at this point

Using mirth for ad-hoc file conversion from HL7 and X.12 to fixed length files and delimited files. Much easier than writing a program everytime!

Cool Evaluation of Mirth for my Employer

I am a consultant to a leading national lab company. I am a developer of ADT Demographics interfaces in my role here. I have had an easy time figuring out how to set up and configure Mirth for an HL7 ADT interface without much technical assistance or documentation. There is one exception. I am having trouble calling a Stored Procedure in MS SQL server. I am doing an informal eval and do not have access to any technical documentation. I am using the Mirth forum to resolve this issue. If I am able to succeed at calling the SPROC then I am hoping to save my company lots of money with Mirth as the ADT engine platform for our clients.

We currently use an interface engine that charges for licenses by the thread (connection) as well as yearly support for each. There is also no way of working with a database unless you buy an additional module. I am looking at Mirth as a way to augment my current engine and allow me to have more flexability in passing data back and forth directly with a database. I am still very new in my evaluation.

We are using it to message between a hospital HL7 system and a SQL database. Version 2.0.1 has worked quite well. There is a bit of a learning curve especially if you are new to HL7.

Default Would love to hear more about the ADT and ORU work.

I am starting to evaluate mirth for the same things. Would love to know more about what you are doing and what problems you might be running into. Perhaps we can share some channel development efforts.
