OMG (Needham, Mass.), Health Level Seven (HL7, Ann Arbor, Mich.), and the SOA Consortium will host a conference designed to raise dialogue about service oriented architecture (SOA) and its use in healthcare, with a focus on its role as a transformation agent to add organizational value, say the companies.

The conference, entitled SOA in Healthcare: Value in a Time of Change, will be held June 2-4, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency O’Hare in Chicago. According to the companies, the event aims to convey real-world experiences, assembling a community of peers to exchange ideas and discuss what has worked, what did not work, and review best practices for attendees to benefit from lessons learned faced in real implementations.

Registration details can be found online at http://www.omg.org/hc-pr.

OMG is a not-for-profit computer industry consortium. Its task forces develop enterprise integration standards for a range of technologies, including: real-time, embedded and specialized systems, analysis and design, architecture-driven modernization and middleware.
