pdqm-iti78 component

The pdqm-iti78 component provides interfaces for actors of the Patient Demographics Query for Mobile IHE transaction (ITI-78), which is described in the IHE IT Infrastructure Technical Framework Supplement, Patient Demographics Query for Mobile (PDQm), Section 3.78.


The transaction defines the following actors:

ITI-78 actors
ITI-78 transaction and actors

Producer side corresponds to the Patient Demographics Consumer actor. Consumer side corresponds to both Patient Demographics Supplier actor.


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


Endpoint URI Format


The endpoint URI format of pdqm-iti78 component producers is:


where hostname is either an IP address or a domain name, port is a number, and path/to/service represents additional path elements of the remote service.


The endpoint URI format of pdqm-iti78 component consumers is:


The resulting URL of the exposed FHIR REST Service endpoint depends on the configuration of the deployment container. Consider a Tomcat container on host eHealth.server.org is configured in the following way:

port = 8888
contextPath = /IHE
servletPath = /fhir/*

Then the pdqm-iti78 consumer will be available for external clients under the URL http://eHealth.server.org:8888/IHE/fhir.

URI parameters controlling the transaction features are described below.


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

      // process the incoming request and create a response

Translation into PDQ

IPF comes with translators to translate ITI-78 requests into ITI-21 requests and vice versa for the responses.
