The pix-iti8/xds-iti8 component provides interfaces for actors of the Patient Identity Feed IHE transaction (ITI-8), which is described in the IHE IT Infrastructure Technical Framework, Volume 2a , Section 3.8. This transaction relates to both PIX and XDS IHE profiles, therefore the same component is available under two different names.


The transaction defines the following actors:

ITI-8 actors

Producer side corresponds to the Patient Identity Source actor. Consumer side corresponds to both Patient Identifier Cross-reference Manager and XDS Document Registry actors.


In a Maven-based environment, the following dependency must be registered in pom.xml:


Endpoint URI Format

The endpoint URI format of the pix-iti8/xds-iti8 component is identical for producers and consumers:


where hostname is either an IP address or a domain name, and port is a number. For the consumer side, the host name allows the access from any remote host. These two obligatory URI parts represent the address of the MLLP endpoint which is to be served by the given consumer or accessed by the given producer. URI parameters controlling the transaction features are described below.

HL7v2 Codec

All HL7v2-based transactions are realized using the camel-mina2 and camel-hl7 components and requires that an HL7v2 Codec is available in the Camel registry.


This is an example on how to use the component on the consumer side:

      // process the incoming request and create a response

Basic Common Component Features

Remarks for this component
