Hub Process Inbound API is presented as a Web Service. All documents are added to the Hub using the API through either direct or indirect methods. Direct to the Web Service (system to system interface) Hub Document Capture Interface ITK Adaptor - for systems who can produce an ITK 2 compliant Clinical correspondence The API requires conformance to a set of minimum metadata, which includes the document itself.

Hub Process Hub Web Service API A public “Inbound” Web Service Based API to support incoming Docman Hub Documents posted within a XML message structure known as the Docman Hub Message specification (EDT WSAPI). All incoming documents are passed into EDT via this API. The API is presented as a synchronous web service over HTTPS (HTTP in non-live environments). The API uses the Microsoft.Net platform There is no direct access to the Docman Hub infrastructure other than through this API. Sending applications may use the API to check on the current status of posted documents in order to find out if they have been collected or rejected by the receiving practice. Security It is mandatory that customers use SSL to encrypt all inbound and out bound connections to the Hub. This is achieved through applying an SSL certificate. The customer is responsible for network security and the provision of an appropriate SSL certificate. Role based access to EDT Console provides controlled access to the features and functions within the EDT Console. The access Log provides an audit trail of who has logged into the EDT Console and when. User security allows the operator to specify minimum password length, expiry time and required complexity. Delivering to GP Practices A Private “Outbound” Web Service is utuilised to allow outgoing doucments to be collected securely by ‘Endpoints’ Via EDT or EDT Connect Lite.

Sharing Agreements Process Discovery Service Firewalls Relayed Documents Responsibility Support Responsibility for (User) Rejections is originating hub.
CURRENT VERSION 800810 Document list - A Column has been added to display the sending organisation. Relayed Documents – A Column has been added to display the destination hub. Tiff Conversion – Tiff Conversion can be switched on or off for documents remotely added to the hub. Document Source Screen - Fix applied to resolve the tiff conversion setting to display incorrectly. End point Activity Screen – Fix applied to resolve an issue affecting the date filters. Change Password – Fix applied for when a password is changed, it displays the Log in Screen and not the site. Users receiving documents are now able to reject delivered documents via the details screen. Users must select a reason for rejection from the drop down list before clicking the reject button.
Next Release - 80875 Relayed Documents An addition has been made to the Relayed Documents table to now record the local document ID. The document is now stored on the originating Hub.
Next Release - 800875 Relayed Documents A new document status of ‘Relayed’ has now been included. Additional ‘Last checked column’. This shows when the remote document was last checked by the maintenance service. If >24hours it will display a warning.
Next Release - 800875 Relayed Documents Relayed Document Status is highlighted in colours to make it consistent to main document list screen. Green - Dcument waiting Grey - On old Red - Rejected Orange - Conversion pending Black – Delivered/Deleted Blue - Processed
Next Release - 800875 Relayed Documents Ability to add a comment when resending a document.
Next Release - 800875 Web Admin Console New search checkbox for Relayed documents
Next Release - 800875 Enhanced User Interface. Activity panel shows cleared view of originating stats versus relayed stats.
Next Release - 800875 Maintenance Service The maintenance service now has an extra process, set by default to 1 minute but this value can be modified by admin to assist load balancing. This loops through the documents in the Relayed Documents table and asynchronously retrieves the status and any rejection information from the remote web service and updates the local Relayed Documents
Document Sources A document source is where the document originates. Document sources can be added to the hub which are then given a unique ID. Document sources can be made inactive at anytime
LIVE EXAMPLES Active Document sources currently used in GG&C.
