Overview of Changes for Noah 4.15 - Additional Data Support Conformance level 4 and higher

The release of Noah System 4.15 will provide the possibility for a business system to receive an expanded set of data.

This announcement outlines the new feature at a high level.

Data Support

Noah 4.15 now makes it possible for a business system to exchange data with more data standards and newer formats. The business system can control how this new feature is utilized by setting the conformance level.

See https://himsanoah.atlassian.net/wiki/spaces/AD/pages/745144509 for details on the available data elements per data standard

Important: If you wish to work with conformance level 4 or higher, then the result will always be that you will receive the data in the format in which it was stored in. For example, if an audiogram was stored to Noah in format 502, then WSI will send it to your system in format 502. Your system will need to be prepared work with this higher format.

If your system is configured with conformance level 3, then the data will be sent to your system in format 500. Noah will perform a runtime conversion to format 500. For example, if an audiogram was stored to Noah in format 502, then WSI will send it to your system in format 500.

Note that format 500 is labeled as Impedance and 501 is Admittance. A name change in the standard was implemented with format 501. The WSI configuration screens and sample applications will only note “Impedance,” but working with level 4 or higher will provide Admittance.

WSI will remain an effective API but will not include all data that is available in other API’s, most notably:

  • Exchange of Fast Data Views

  • Exchange of Private Action data
