This 2-part webinar takes a deep dive into the message definition and processing rules and data type definitions of the Control chapters of the HL7 Version 2 standards.
Note for students seeking certification:
Students are expected to prepare for the certification exam by previous study of Chapter 2 (Control) and Chapter 2A (Data Types) of the HL7 Version 2.X standard. Simply taking this or other courses will most likely not be sufficient to pass the test. We strongly recommend a combination of work group meeting participation, attendance at education sessions, field work dealing with HL7 interfaces and self-study.
