For the past 7 weeks I worked on my first Proof-Of-Concept (POC) for a financial system corporation. The initial scope of the work revolved around using SOA Expressway primarily as rapid & high performance secure integration product.
Last April at HIMSS in Chicago, Intel participated in the IHE showcase , which is essentially a huge "plug fest" for healthcare vendors promoting interoperability in healthcare. Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information. The IHE process delivers a set of interoperability "profiles", which are comprised of established standards to address specific clinical use cases.
Data interoperability is vital to today’s healthcare computing environment, allowing clinical information to be effectively and consistently exchanged, compared, and analyzed among healthcare partners such as insurers, pharmacies, affiliated providers, and public health departments. Put simply, data interoperability enables better decision making.
