This paper describes the design for HL7 validations; although the electronic data exchange standard of Health Level Seven (HL7) has been presented more than a decade, health organizations apply the standard of data transfer only in these few years with little experience. Because the quality of the Hospital Information System (HIS) varies in each institution that whether the transmitted data match with the standards completely or not. If there is any mistake in the exchanged data in hospitals, it will cause problems to the whole information system as well as to patient records for management. As computer technologies are using rapid processing to speed up the Electronic Medical Records (EMR) and increasing the use of Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) in health organizations.
