Intel® SOA Expressway Passes IHE North America Connectathon

In February 2009, Intel participated in IHE North America’s Connectathon. As a result, the Intel® SOA Expressway for Healthcare successfully tested the following IHE and HITSP Profiles and Actors:

IHE ProfileIHE ActorHITSP Profile
XDS | XDS.bDocument SourceTP 13 b
XDS | XDS.bDocument ConsumerTP 13 b
XDS | XDS.aDocument SourceTP 13 a

Patient Demographic Query (PDQ) - HL7 v3Consumer 
Audit Trail and Node Authentication (ATNA)Secure ApplicationT 15, T 17


In future posts, I plan to discuss:

  • Some of these profiles, their importance and impact on interoperability
  • Reduced implementation time by using SOA Expressway, especially as an IHE on-ramp
  • Ease of using HL7 in SOA Expressway
  • Security aspects of SOA Expressway and how ATNA requirements were met
  • SOA Expressway Performance Elements
  • Traceability within SOA Expressway
  • SOA Expressway product extension to support DICOM and other healthcare related protocols

Intel SOA Expressway for Healthcare is a high-performance health information gateway from Intel, that simplifies healthcare information interoperability. It provides a configuration-centric solution to integrate islands of health data and ensure data privacy, delivers out-of-the box support for healthcare data standards, and enables healthcare organizations to service-enable their legacy Healthcare IT to interoperate with the entire healthcare enterprise. Intel® SOA Expressway for Healthcare is a specific implementation of a new product category called a SOA "soft appliance", which delivers a breakthrough in simplicity, cost and scalability for enabling high-quality health information exchange.
