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.
