A profile for the HL7 Messaging Work Bench (MWB) was developed to aid with the implementation of Volume V compliant HL7 interfaces. The MWB is a standalone application that can be used to validate the conformance of HL7 messages with the latest Volume V standard.

Note: Because the OBX-5 data type is defined in Volume V as “Varies” the workbench will kick out an error “Invalid Data Type” if it encounters any values in OBX-5 that include component delimiters. In these situations the MWB will not validate properly until a conformance statement in the profile is defined with the explicit criteria for each different datatype.
