HL7 is a communication protocol and message format for health care data.
It is the de-facto standard for transmitting data between clinical
information systems and between clinical devices. The version 2.x series,
which is often is a pipe delimited format is currently the most widely
accepted version of HL7 (version 3.0 is an XML-based format).
python-hl7 currently only parses HL7 version 2.x messages into an easy
to access, list-based, data structure.
