4th Annual SOA in Healthcare Conference: Save the Date and Call for Participation
Conference will be held June 14-16, 2011 in Washington, D.C.

Needham, MA, USA and Ann Arbor, MI, USA - January 13, 2011 - OMG® and Health Level Seven® International (HL7) today announced that the fourth annual SOA in Healthcare Conference: "SOA Road-map to Integration: Architecting Interoperability in Healthcare" will be held June 14-16, 2011 in Washington, D.C. The Review Committee has issued the Call for Participation. Registration and abstract submission details may be found online at

The focus of the SOA in Healthcare conference is 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. Not a "tech industry" event, this conference is exclusively healthcare focused, and will highlight the challenges unique to healthcare organizations and emphasize cross-industry solutions that are viable within the healthcare domain. It is targeted primarily to a health-IT savvy audience.

A wide cross-section of the health industry will participate, including healthcare providers, payers, public health organizations and vendors from both the public and private sector.

The conference will be experientially focused, with speakers bringing their personal and organizational experiences to what will be a presentation and discussion-oriented forum.

Call for Abstracts
The conference Review Committee is seeking proposals for presentations based on "real-world" organizational experiences, evaluations, case studies or research papers relevant to the conference themes of SOA integration and architecting interoperability in healthcare. Please indicate whether you are recommending your submission for the Executive Summit, the Functional Track, or the Technical Track. Topics may include (but aren't limited to):

  • Modeling (SoaML, SysML, BPMN, etc.)
  • Semantic Computability and Interoperability
  • Ontology and Vocabularies
  • Decision Support Systems
  • Cloud Computing
