The HL7 SIU message notifies an auxiliary (or other similarly configured) application of changes to some facet of the filler application’s appointment schedule. There are 14 different trigger events for the SIU message, but they all use a common message format.

  • SIU-S24 – Notification of opened (“un-blocked”) schedule time slot(s)
