Learn how HCA is utilizing WSO2 API Manager and FHIR® microservices to build an enterprise service architecture for HCA developers, vendor applications, and business partners. HCA has consolidated data from 180 facilities (each with a separate EMR instance) and 36 million patient visits (to date) into our Encounter service alone, which will be explored as a detailed use case. This talk will review how these services are saving money and resources, and simplifying the networking and security demands on the integration team.
