The Spine Message Implementation Manual (MiM) is the formal specification of the vast majority of our HL7 V3 APIs.
Some more recent HL7 V3 APIs have separate Domain Message Specifications and are not included in the MiM. You can find these via our API catalogue.
The MiM should be read in conjunction with the Spine External Interface Specification (EIS) which describes the general shape of the API, including the SOAP wrapper format, and how to build a Message Handling Service (MHS) to interact with Spine.
There are currently four versions of the MiM. Unless you are already using an older version, you should use the latest version - 7.2.02.
