Intel® SOA Expressway XSLT 2.0 Processor

New Intel® SOA Expressway for Healthcare Release Powers Patient/Provider Community Exchange at Newark Beth Israel Medical Center

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.

XSLT 2.0: Sorting

As conformance testing and fixing progresses for the Intel SOA Expressway XSLT 2.0 processor, I’ll continue examining new XSLT 2.0 features. In my previous post, I talked a bit about grouping, which puts items from a sequence into groups by key value or by relative position. With the right input, that might also sort the sequence, but typically that won’t be the result. So in this post I’ll talk about a close relative, sorting.

SOA Expressway Provides IHE On-Ramp at HIMSS Interoperability Showcase

In a previous post, I stated that Intel's SOA Expressway for Healthcare (Expressway) passed IHE Connectathon testing. This was accomplished by constructing workflows that encapsulate the requirements (transformations, transactions, etc.) necessary for various IHE profiles.

Can infrastructure enable healthcare interoperability?

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.

Intel SOA Expressway Service Patterns

The way SOA implementations are being implemented today, there's a new demand for middleware component that provides necessary services such as high-speed message level parsing, validation, transformation and translation to different message formats, message-level routing, service management, governance and control. Intel’s high-performance software solution is uniquely positioned to offer variety of such services critical in implementing true SOA.
