The Power of Service-Oriented Architecture
March 24, 2009, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
Eric Leader, VP Technology Architecture, CareFx. How to get as much value as possible from existing systems? Give clinicians easy access to patient data from combined sources. Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) gives you an intelligent way to incorporate systems, allowing them to interoperate by creating a common method for accessing disparate data sources. There’s no need to settle for silos of data from legacy and niche applications; SOA enables aggregate access to relevant information such as lab results, vital signs, radiology exams, and medications for the selected patient. Eric discusses the many benefits of SOA in addressing isolated data sources, how to determine if your organization would be strengthened through SOA and providing role-specific access to patient information, how to implement browser-based portal technologies that dramatically improve the user experience, and shares his firsthand experience from his former role at Catholic Healthcare West.
