Demonstration: Creating the New Schema and Copying from the Base
Here are the first steps for creating the custom schema:
On the HL7 v2.x Schema Structures page, click New. This launches the Custom Schema Wizard.
Enter the following information:
Base Schema: 2.3
Schema Name: TutorialSchema
Schema Description: Modifies the ADT_A01 message to include the custom ZWG (patient wing) seg.
On the left-hand side of the page verify that the TutorialSchema has been created with the correct base schema (2.3).
Click the Message Types tab, then click the CopyFromBase button.
On the next screen, select ADT_A01(2.3) from the dropdown list.
On the next screen, leave the default settings unchanged and click OK.
At this stage, you have accomplished the following:
Created the custom TutorialSchema and designated HL7 2.3 as its base schema.
Copied both the ADT_A01 message type and message structure definitions to the new structure.
Indicated that the format TutorialSchema:ADT_A01 message type is defined by the TutorialSchema:ADT_A01 message structure.
