The Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess 8550 WebServices Gateway: AUTOMATED WORKFLOW FOR IMPROVED PAT IENT CARE
Healthcare institutions around the world want to provide high quality patient care while reducing medical errors and patient wait times. Many healthcare institutions are struggling under the weight of obsolete, manual business processes with little integrated IT system support. Studies show front-line healthcare providers spend only a third of their time with patients and the rest wrestling with inefficient processes. High quality patient care means deploying leading edge IT systems that automate healthcare provider workflow and streamline operations. Patient care provided at remote locations, such as clinics or private offices, can be significantly improved with online access to patient records. Business process automation brings the increased burden of complying with information privacy regulations that have been put into place by many countries across the globe. The key issue is ensuring information privacy while also providing information that enables healthcare practitioners and support personnel to become more efficient - easy and secure access to patient records is essential. The Alcatel-Lucent OmniAccess 8550Web Services Gateway (WSG) is a network appliance that secures automated business processes to meet corporate governance obligations. It protects sensitive corporate data from misuse and ensures data is always available when and where it is needed. The OmniAccess 8550 WSG enables a network embedded SOA backbone that provides IT system interoperability for corporate wide security and regulatory compliance within healthcare institutions and enables the creation of an extended healthcare ecosystem that complies with strict governance requirements. Access
to information is controlled through a corporate wide security infrastructure for Web service management that uses Alcatel-Lucent patent-pending message inspection technology.
