PilotFish’s HL7 Vocabulary Tool Offers a Free Web-Based, Easy Reference for the HL7 Standard
The HL7 Vocabulary Tool from PilotFish provides a Web-based reference for the HL7 Standard. PilotFish’s HL7 Vocabulary Tool is part of the exclusive suite of tools PilotFish provides to make working with the HL7 standard easier.
PilotFish has created free Model Viewers/Vocabulary Tools for several widely used standards. These include: ACORD, HR-XML, OpenTravel, and MISMO. The HL7 Vocabulary Tool adds to this list of popular web-based reference tools. We have created these to help organizations more efficiently implement standards.
Features of PilotFish’s HL7 Vocabulary Tool include:
- Display of complete documentation of the imported standard, including all Elements and Attributes, Types, Attribute Groups, Message Types, Enumerations and Codelists
- Read any HL7 2.x or 3.x vocabulary
- Tree-based navigation system, similar to a file system explorer
- Fully-featured search
- Sortable Codelist tables
The eiConsole Healthcare Interface Engine IDE incorporates the critical features of the HL7 Vocabulary Tool right within its graphical IDE. The eiConsole offers this fully-featured tool to enable the rapid implementation of HL7 standards.
The entire HL7 version vocabulary that is specified can be easily navigated in the hierarchical tree view through each message, component, sub-component and field within the vocabulary.

Clicking on a field will reveal an HL7 tab with references to the official HL7 specification chapters where that field is referenced.
