brings together successful XML use cases presented by users and
industry experts to provide insight and practical guidance into today's
XML standards, technologies and practices.

IDEAlliance is highlighting users that have successfully deployed XML
technology in either a document-centric or XML web services
environment. In a public session users will describe their applications
and get direct feedback from industry experts. Examples of topics that
may be discussed:

Security; performance; scalability
Applicability of new standards, tools and technologies
Compatibility and interoperability issues and pointers
Managing and maintaining vocabularies

XML Master Series: Web Services Case Study

Our solution named OR-*, developed at the Ohio State University Medical
Center, is a suite of secure systems based on Service Oriented
Architecture. The solution uniformly treats collection of "medical
actions" generated in a hospital as electronic medical records. One
suite named OR-Eye allows (desktop or mobile) remote monitoring,
recording, and replay of clinical data emerging from the Operating
Rooms and Intensive Care Units. Another suite named OR-Medication
enables recording of medication actions. A third suite named OR-Track,
currently under construction, allows patient and equipment tracking.
The solution is based on autonomous XML Web Services enhanced by WS-*
specifications (WS-Policy, WS-Trust, WS-SecureConversation, WS-Reliable
Messaging etc.). Ease of development was achieved by using Microsoft's
Indigo technology. We estimate that our solution decreased the cost of
implementing security by 80% compared to earlier systems built by us.
The system also facilitates billing, auditing, efficient workflow,
reduced errors, improved education and research.

XML Masters Series: Document Publishing Case Study

American Society of Health-System Pharmacists
For more than 60 years, ASHP has helped pharmacists who practice in
hospitals and health systems improve medication use and enhance patient
safety. In support of this mission, the Society has an extensive
publishing operation, of which, AHFS Drug Information is at the
forefront. Published since 1959, AHFS (American Hospital Formulary
Service) has undergone several face-lifts (from loose-leaf to bound in
1984) and has changed considerably behind-the-scenes, from a strictly
typesetting format to a proprietary database format (1984) to an
industry-standard, vendor-neutral format (2001). Previously published
in one annual edition plus quarterly supplements, the new AHFS Drug
Information is published annually in print and offers monthly updates.
Turn-around time for the annual edition from time of print publication
to database publication was reduced from 3 months to 2 weeks. This case
study will review the steps taken leading up to conversion of the
database to SGML; selecting new vendors for editing, content
management, and composition; a return on investment analysis; and
additional ASHP publishing efforts in SGML and XML.
