Default What Non-HL7 Projects do you use Mirth for?

Hi;

We use Mirth for a lot of different things, not just HL7 interfaces.

Besides the easy stuff such as using Mirth to auto-FTP, I have a channel that fires a SQL Server script to batch import a text file into a database which we then use to maintain our Active Directory structure

I'd be interested in hearing what other non-HL7 applications people are using Mirth for.

1. Used Mirth to split an xml file into separate text files so it could be read into a text to speech program that could handle batch files.

2. I often use Mirth to generate csv reports from databases and save them to file or send in an email.

1. Generate CSV (or PDF) from database queries
2. Analyse logfiles and send e-mail if entries with level "FATAL" are discovered
3. Count number of files in directories; this is used as supervision of interfaces: if number increases over a some level, an interface is probably down; alert mail is sent.
4. Check age of logfile of an interface: interface is scheduled to run every x minutes and writes a log even if nothing to do; il youngest logfile older than x minutes, interface crashed
5. File-dispatching of a multi-instance billing system with output into one single directory; files are dipatched based on naming conventions of the files, to diffent types of users
6. Medication delivery robot put one file per package delivered; data are grouped in files based on order number to create delivery reports.
7. Some more, and more ideas to come

- Receive position (GPS) messages from ambulances and show its position under google maps (all made using only mirth channels).
- Centralize the conllection of data of more than 300 differents databases.
- Creating web interfaces (using http connector) to manage resources what will be used later for other channesl of Mirth.
- Offers simpler interfaces to access to an old system which only speaks an strage tcp-low-level protocol (by developing a new connector).

We use Mirth for many things.

We use it to Modify DICOM header for images sent to our Teleradiology system.

We create HL7 messages from DICOM images and send to PowerScribe.

We take results from powerScribe format them into Reports in an RTF format and then fax them out through GFI Faxmaker. We actually use Mirth to create the API file for the Fax Server.

We have even used Mirth in the past to do file conversions from csv files and dump the results into a database and format an HL7 message to send to our downstream systems.

Given enough time we will use Mirth to fully automate our Teleradiology practice by removing the need for a RIS to have the data entered into.

I'm currently setting up a channel to order coffe-pads in our department:
I call the channel with parameter action=ASK -> mail is sent to all people in the department with the list of all available types of cofee pads; the information will be coded as links including user information and type of coffee pad and action= ORDER
The user clicks his choice, which will populate an order file and send a confirmation e-mail

I think this will be fun when I reveal this channel to my colleagues ...

Brilliant! ....with every sip of coffee, they can't help but think of how it was made possible.

I only hope the lunch menu is the next in line for channel design.

I'd really enjoy getting some Mirth coffee mugs. (I guess my colleagues would be kind of jealous ...) I'll send you my home adress for the case these mugs really exist

To let you have fun like we did, I attach the channel with configs and docs to this post.

Have fun
