Webinar: Beyond the EHR: Using APIs and Microservices to Revolutionize Healthcare Delivery for Veterans Affairs
In the healthcare industry, data interoperability has long been considered a holy grail. And eight years after the passage of the HITECH Act, which promised to create incentives for healthcare providers to “meaningfully use” electronic health record technologies and open access to medical data, interoperability still remains a massive challenge.
Late last year, the US Department of Veterans Affairs announced the completion of a Proof of Concept for a Digital Health Platform (DHP) which promises a solution to these interoperability challenges. The DHP is a cloud-based technology platform integrating Veteran data from VA, military and commercial electronic health records (EHRs), applications, devices and wearables to a Veteran’s healthcare team in real-time. Delivering on their vision required the adoption of a composable architecture, using APIs to abstract away complexity from EHRs and other systems into discrete units of business capabilities, represented via microservices.
In this webinar, the DHP team will present methodology and technology insights drawn from the public-private collaboration that built the proof-of-concept, and share the role MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform helping enable this vision.
The value of the DHP team’s approach extends far beyond healthcare or government. IT leaders across all industries can join our webinar to learn how their unique architectural approach can address connectivity challenges. We’ll be discussing how microservices can be used to increase IT agility, as well as how APIs can be used to more efficiently connect on-premise legacy systems to cloud applications. In addition, we’ll be discussing how MuleSoft’s Anypoint Platform supported the development of the composable architecture powering the DHP PoC.
