Abstract

The use of a service-oriented architecture
(SOA) has been identified as a promising approach for
improving health care by facilitating reliable clinical
decision support (CDS). A review of the literature
through October 2013 identified 44 articles on this
topic. The review suggests that SOA related technologies
such as Business Process Model and Notation
(BPMN) and Service Component Architecture (SCA)
have not been generally adopted to impact health IT
systems’ performance for better care solutions. Additionally,
technologies such as Enterprise Service Bus
(ESB) and architectural approaches like Service Choreography
have not been generally exploited among researchers
and developers. Based on the experience of
other industries and our observation of the evolution of
SOA, we found that the greater use of these approaches
have the potential to significantly impact SOA
implementations for CDS
