Web software development and cloud computing based on Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Service-Oriented Computing (SOC) represent the modern software engineering theory, practices and technologies. The book takes a comprehensive and coherent approach to address these issues. The goal is to learn the concepts, principles and methods in advanced software architecture, software engineering, and software development. The approach is learning by developing.
I was recently asked to talk at the European eInvoicing and eBilling conference about better ways to integrate the transfer of e Invoicing and e billing into existing applications and security solutions. By the way, it was held in Munich and, if you go, definitely check out the surfing at the south end of the Englischer Garten.
It’s been about a year and half since we first released Intel® SOA Expressway for Healthcare, which is a purpose-built, easy-to-deploy integration appliance for connecting islands of information together to enable a secure, high-performance, best-of-breed health information infrastructure. We have now begun shipping release 2.2, which contains a number of new feature enhancements.
My last few posts have looked at the role of data standardization and terminology translation in enabling healthcare organizations to exchange information that can be understand by all. Terminology translation acts as a bridge to make it possible for two organizations to share and understand health data that is "codified" differently.
In my last few posts I touched on the value of health data interoperability and specifically on how medical terminology translation is a key enabler for data standardization and semantic normalization. In fact, this is a substantial growth area for healthcare, thus it is worth highlighting some of the emerging use cases and applications.
Fast Cars, MIDs, the iPhone and the VW GTI
The idea of integrating my portable connected communication device into my life is very appealing. I have been able to accomplish that in many ways with my iPhone. I hope that as MIDs evolve we can integrate them even further; I will use my car as an example.
My last couple posts have touched on the importance of data standards in enabling interoperability in healthcare. It is important to recognize, however, that data standardization is not about dictating the way organizations capture and share clinical data.
In my last post I looked under the hood at data interoperability, examining the need for the normalization of both "syntactic" and "semantic" aspects of healthcare data. In this post I will present a high-level architecture for data normalization to share some understanding of how health information exchange is implemented in practice.
