One of the great things about using BizTalk Server as your integration platform is that you get a significant amount of schemas right out of the box. Microsoft has done a great job keeping up with industry standards such as EDI (supply chain logistics and more), HL7 (healthcare), HIPAA (healthcare) , SWIFT (financial services).
With BizTalk 2013, the following versions are now available:
HL7 2.5.1 and 2.6
EDI X12 5030+ and EDIFACT D05B+
Also, HL7 in BizTalk 2013 has some new features including:
Recoverable Interchange support in HL7 pipeline for Batch In Batch Out Scenario
HAT is removed, but logging feature remains intact
“Auditing and Logging Service” is renamed HL7 Logging Service”
