Case Study: Establishing an Integration Hub with SOA

On demand

This webinar is the latest session in the Intelligent, Integrated Enterprise webinar series.

Healthcare integration technologies are used by hospitals, providers, and insurance companies to integrate applications within their organizations and to connect to their partners, suppliers, and customers.  Finding a reliable, secure, and cost-effective platform for enterprise-wide information sharing through systems integration is one of the Healthcare industry’s greatest challenges.  Having visibility into location and status of equipment, inventory, key staff members, and other critical assets can be a key discriminator in patient care.  Improving the overall efficiencies of operations, while at the same time enhancing patient and provider safety and security, is paramount.

Healthcare providers and hospitals are no different from any other business in America today dealing with legacy, multi-vendor, or proprietary technologies.  The goal is to provide an extensible, standards-based integration framework based on Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) that enables real-time integration to provide higher levels of patient care, while leveraging best in class healthcare solutions.

In this case study of a WiFi location tracking vendor’s integration server you will learn how the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform delivers innovation and value to the Healthcare industry by:

  • Improving the information sharing process with other Healthcare providers
  • Establishing an integration hub that is neutral of vendor technology
  • Providing a repository for centralized business rules
  • Integrating seamlessly with internal and external systems
  • Reducing costs and complexity by leveraging a secure, standards-based, and extensible platform 
  • Increasing service levels and patient care
  • Enabling interoperability with other systems in a secure, standard, and compliant manner
We will discuss a solution that establishes real-time location-based WiFi integration platform based on the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform. Learn how utilizing the JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform enables business agility, introduces process orchestration, and simplifies integration all while reducing costs.
