Plano, Texas (PRWEB) May 11, 2009
Corepoint Health's CTO, Dave Shaver, will be an invited panelist in the second annual SOA in Healthcare conference to be held on June 2 - 4 in Chicago, Illinois. Conference attendees will include a number of knowledgeable IT professionals and thought leaders throughout the healthcare sector, including providers, vendors, payers and public health organizations.
Shaver will be a panelist in the discussion titled "Which SOA Services are needed to Accelerate Healthcare Integration." Moderated by Ron Schmelzer, Managing Partner at ZapThink, the panel discussion will focus on real world experiences in healthcare integration now and in the future.
"SOA presents both an opportunity and a challenge to healthcare. One of the key questions the industry needs to answer is how SOA will be used - only as internal application architecture or more broadly as an interoperability strategy. The conference will provide a forum to exchange ideas and debate the merits of reusability and standardization of SOA interfaces. Ultimately, such discussion will provide insights into future practices and roadblocks of SOA. I look forward to sharing ideas and perspectives with industry peers," said Shaver.
