About Mirth Connect Like an interpreter who translates foreign languages into the one you understand, Mirth Connect translates message standards into the one your system understands. Whenever a “foreign” system sends you a message, Mirth Connect integration capabilities expedite the following:
Filtering – Mirth Connect reads message parameters and passes the message to or stops it on its way to the transformation stage.
Transformation – Mirth Connect converts the incoming message standard to another standard (e.g., HL7 to XML).
Extraction – Mirth Connect can “pull” data from and “push” data to a database.
Routing – Mirth Connect makes sure messages arrive at their assigned destinations.
