Message Infrastructure Fault

From HL7Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

An Message Infrastructure Fault is an abstract term for a communication error encountered at the Message Infrastructure Layer (MIL) that needs to be communicated back to the application layer. The reason for this need is that this error type cannot be solved by the MIL layer just by retrying to send the HL7 message, and therefore further decision making needs to be sent back to the business entities.


  • This concept used to be called Application Fault. The name was changed because the error is not encountered at the business layer, and the word "application" is somehow misleading.
