A Study on Cloud Based SOA Suite for Electronic Healthcare Records Integration

Conference paper
Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST, volume 43)


In order to exchange healthcare information reliability, security and cost-effectiveness are three important factors where healthcare industry has to focus upon. Versatile platforms for enterprise-wide information sharing are needed for payers and providers. To provide quality care to patient’s accurate information through networks should be required for clinicians and integrated information for the business operation is needed for administrators. Information access from various systems like innovation, performance improvement, demand, monetary and many such other systems is required from both the sides of organization. These organizations must share data externally from application data, medical records of all patients, medicinal data, chemistry reports and symptomatic information from various mediator bodies and strictly following the policies and procedures for storing, modifying, disseminating the electronic health records (EHR). In this era most of the Health care industries are moving to cloud services for processing and storing the healthcare data. There is a need to build cloud based SOA suite for EHR integration. This SOA suite will help healthcare organizations with widespread integrated capabilities and a fused middleware platform. In this paper we study a cloud based SOA suite for EHR integration by empowering the transparent, extensible, protected methods for distributing real and secured information only for intended recipients.
