SOA in Healthcare

August 7, 2007

IBM and the University of Florida are teaming up to create a wireless Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to enable mobile devices to deliver health data. “This technology will enable automatically recognized devices to send the information they register to authorized third parties, such as specialized healthcare providers.”

The more detailed article in PC World states “It will be up to device manufacturers to ensure that their products
are tamper-proof to avoid the possibility of false readings.” Certainly some strong service level agreements needed here.

“As a way to start building momentum behind the technology, IBM has contributed components of the project to the Open Health care Framework of the open-source development tools Eclipse Foundation community.”
