Two weeks ago, I introduced the Mirth Connect interface engine and shared its impact on one of my client engagements at Galen Healthcare Solutions. Through that experience I was constantly learning new ways to make Mirth safer, faster, and easier to use. After almost six months of development work, I wanted to share some tips on how you can optimize Mirth Connect.
- Add channel metadata to troubleshoot faster: You may already be storing useful information about incoming messages in channel variables, such as the MRN of a patient, an identifier for a hospital, or the HTTP response code of a message you are POSTing via Mirth™. By adding these channel variables to the metadata of a channel, you can view the values for these variables on the message log screen and also speed up your searches when using the Advanced search filter and specifying the metadata you have defined.
In the message log screen for your channel you can see your new metadata, adding important information to your message log. Use the Advanced search option with metadata specified to experience faster search results.
