HL7 is an ANSI-accredited Standards Organization that develops interface requirements for health care organizations. Last September the following profiles were submitted by Microsoft to HL7:
- Security Profile as DSTU: based on WS-Security (pdf), WS-SecureConversation, WS-Trust and WS-Policy
- Addressing as DSTU: based on WS-Addressing
- Reliable Messaging as draft: based on WS-ReliableMessaging
If you work in Healthcare you are probably already aware of these profiles. If you don't work in Healthcare you should still take a look - these profile serve as excellent guidelines for using some of the advanced Web Services specifications.
Conngratulations to Roberto Ruggeri, Chris Kaler, Felipe Cabrera and Mauro Regio!
