GENERAL DESCRIPTION
This integration covers the use of the DELBODY^HLUOPT2
API.  This API deletes all segments of a VistA HL7 message except the MSH
segment.  See patch HL*1.6*98 for additional explanation and information.

COMPONENT/ENTRY POINT
COMPONENT/ENTRY POINT COMPONENT DESCRIPTION VARIABLES
DELBODY(IEN772,APP,STORE)
All Health Level 7 (HL7) messages are composed of a
MSH segment, and other optional segments.  The MSH segment is stored in the HL
Message Administration file (#773), and the other segments are stored in the
HL Message Text file (#772).  In addition to the MSH and other segments, these
files hold other tracking and administrative data.

Some messages handled by the VistA HL7 package are extremely large, and
consume enough disk space as to cause storage problems. A new VistA HL7
application programmer interface (API) hass being released in patch HL*1.6*98
to allow applications to selectively delete the "other optional segments" of a
message. (The MSH segment is not deleted by this API.)

When this API is called the following actions occur:

(1) All segments other than the MSH segment are deleted.  (No data is
removed from the HL Message Administration file (#773).  Only data
stored in the ^HL(772,IEN,"IN") nodes is killed; all other
HL Message Text file (#772) file data is retained.)

(2) A record is created in the ^XTMP global of the deletion action.
The ^XTMP global data is stored for 7 days after which it is
deleted.  (More details are provided below.)

The API syntax is shown next:

D DELBODY^HLUOPT2(IEN772,APP,STORE)

The three parameters of the DELBODY API are explained below.

IEN772:    The internal entry number for the HL Message Text file (#772)
entry containing the "optional segments" to be deleted.

The passing of IEN772 is mandatory.

APP:       Free-text information passed to the DELBODY API by the
application identifying the calling process.  This information
is stored in the ^XTMP global as shown below.

APP free-text information may be passed as a null value, or
may be any free-text information up to 60 characters in
length.  (Up-arrows not allowed.)

The passing of APP is optional.

STORE:     Reference to data to be stored in the ^XTMP global.  The
reference must be in "closed reference" format , rather than
"open reference" format.  (Pass "TEXT" rather than "TEXT(",
and pass "^TMP($J)" instead of "^TMP($J,". Additional examples
are provided below.)

Example calls to the DELBODY API are provided next.

D DELBODY(51321523)                    ... APP and STORE not passed ...
D DELBODY(51321523,"MUSE EKG")         ... STORE not passed ...
D DELBODY(51321523,"","TEXT")          ... APP not passed ...
D DELBODY(51321523,"MUSE EKG","TEXT")
D DELBODY(51321523,"MUSE EKG","^TMP($J)")
D DELBODY(51321523,"MUSE EKG","^TMP($J,""INFO"")")

Here is an example entry in the HL Message Text file (#772) prior to calling
the DELBODY API:

^HL(772,5696,0) = 3020830.122552^32^^O^^9985696^^5696^D^269^^^DG^M

^HL(772,5696,"P") = 3^3020830.122553^^^^^600 ^HL(772,5696,"S") = 351^1

The data remaining in the HL Message Text file (#772) remaining after the call
to DELBODY is shown below.

^HL(772,5696,0) = 3020830.122552^32^^O^^9985696^^5696^D^269^^^DG^M
^HL(772,5696,"P") = 3^3020830.122553^^^^^600 ^HL(772,5696,"S") = 351^1

When a call is made to the DELBODY API, the following information is stored in
^XTMP:

- Time when "optional segments" were deleted.
- Value of APP parameter.
- Number lines deleted.
- Information stored in @STORE parameter location.
- Value of XQY0, if it exists.
- Value of ZTSK, if it exists.

The ^XTMP data created when the DELBODY API is called is shown next.  The
initial subscript for the ^XTMP data is "HLUOPT2 "_DT.  If TODAY is 8/25/2002,
the ^XTMP subscript is "HLUOPT2 3020825".  Here is how ^XTMP data is stored,
using "HLUOPT2 3020825" as the subscript:

^XTMP("HLUOPT2 3020825",0)=3020901^3020825.1238^HLUOPT2
Message Body Deletion

The vaporization date for the ^XTMP data created on 8/25/2002 is "T+7" or
3020901 in FileMan format.

The value of "3020825.1238" is the FileMan-format date/time when the first
deletion occurred for the data.  After creation, this date/time is never
overwritten when subsequent deletions of "optional segments" occur.

The value of "HLUOPT2 Message Body Deletion" is always placed in piece 3 of
the zero node above.

When the DELBODY API is called and the zero node above created, if not already
created, additional information is stored in two additional ^XTMP global
locations.  But, before this can be done a "storage occurrence number" must be
calculated.  This number is just a sequential number; 1 the first time a call
is made to DELBODY, 2 the next time, etc.

Assuming that the "storage occurrence number" calculated by the DELBODY API is
23, the following data is created:

^XTMP("HLUOPT2 3020825",23,0)=3020825.1532^MUSE EKG^25321^MUSE EKG
OPTION^1391341

In the above example, the pieces of data are sequentially:

- 3020825.1532 = Time when message body was deleted.
- MUSE EKG = Value passed in APP parameter.
- 25321 = Number lines of "optional segment" data removed.
- MUSE EKG OPTION = Value of XQY0 at time of call to DELBODY.
- 1391341 = Task number (i.e., ZTSK) of process calling DELBODY.

In addition to the above information stored in ^XTMP, the data stored in the
STORE storage location is also stored as shown next.  In this example, let's
assume that the local TEXT array exists and has the following entries:

TEXT(1)="This entry was just marked successfully completed."
TEXT(2)="Therefore, it's message body is no longer needed."
TEXT(3)="Since this message is extremely large, it's message"
TEXT(7)="body will be deleted."

In this case, the TEXT array data will be stored in the ^XTMP global as shown
below.

^XTMP("HLUOPT2 3020825",23,"S",1)="This entry was just marked
successfully completed."
^XTMP("HLUOPT2 3020825",23,"S",2)="Therefore, it's message body is no
longer needed."
^XTMP("HLUOPT2 3020825",23,"S",3)="Since this message is extremely
large, it's message"
^XTMP("HLUOPT2 3020825",23,"S",7)="body will be deleted."

It is strongly recommended that the DELBODY API only be called after all
related messages (i.e., initial message and all related acknowledgement
messages) are successfully completed.
VARIABLES TYPE VARIABLES DESCRIPTION
IEN772 Input
IEN772 is the first parameter for the
DELBODY^HLUOPT2(IEN772,APP,STORE) API, and it is the internal entry number of
an entry in the HL Message Text file (#772.)  Passing this parameter is
mandatory.  Full explanation and examples is provided in this agreement's
component description above.
APP Input
Free-text information stored with ^XTMP data at the
time of message body deletion.  Passing this parameter (and the STORE

characters.  APP may not contain any up-arrows.  Full explanation and examples
is provided in this agreement's component description above.
STORE Input
Global reference to the data to be stored in the
^XTMP data.  The passing of this parameter is optional.  Full explanation and
examples is provided in this agreement's component description above.
