That was indeed discussed. Currently there is an effort to create
interfaces using the new HL7 FHIR standard, but I still believe there
is value in an HL7v2 set of interfaces.
I am still unclear on how to handle the triggers in Tryton though, and
am myself not a GNU Health developer [yet] as I still need to figure
out how to properly set up a dev environment.

All this seems pretty promising.

 I'll have a look.
