ebXML Message Service Adapter enhances medical data
transfer at Helse Vest, Norway

Covast, the global business-to-business (B2B) integration and communication partner of Microsoft, today announced the deployment of its ebXML Message Service Adapter for Microsoft BizTalk Server at Helse Vest IKT AS, the ICT management center for healthcare institutions in western Norway. The Covast solution for ebXML messaging enhances and simplifies the current medical data transfer by presenting itself as a fully integrated solution within BizTalk Server\'s architecture, thus offering all the advantages of the manageability and scalability of the BizTalk Server platform.

Helse Vest, the Western Norway Regional Health Authority, has overall responsibility for providing specialist health services in the Norwegian counties of Rogaland, Hordaland and Sogn og Fjordane. Helse Vest IKT is the ICT-supplier for Helse Vest, delivering products and services within infrastructure, system management, development, architecture, support, end-user equipment, and program and project management. With the main objective to assure a highly reliable and secure data transfer between medical centers, the Norwegian healthcare sector adopted ebXML (electronic business eXtensible Markup Language) as the communication standard of choice. As BizTalk Server, Helse Vest\'s middleware platform, cannot work directly with ebXML, another external solution was required to translate all the ebXML messages, thus complicating the entire communication and integration process. Now, with the Covast ebXML Message Service Adapter, everything is managed from within BizTalk Server, therefore the medical data transfer managed by Helse Vest IKT is being conducted in a more resource effective, and efficient manner. The whole working experience has also been improved by a new user-friendly graphic interface together with a CPA/CPP editing functionality.

\"We have decided to use the Covast Adapter for ebXML messaging as it is the only solution that is completely integrated within BizTalk Server. Not only that it makes all the work to be conducted in a more elegant manner but it also saves a lot of resources in terms of both technical and intellectual effort that is normally needed to be deployed in order to assure the desired reliability and security level of our messaging system. We have also taken into account the quality of the support and maintenance services delivered by Covast and the flexibility with which the ebMS Adapter was configured to fit our specific requirements.\" - Terje Bremnes, Integration & Solutions Architect at Helse Vest IKT.

The Covast ebMS Adapter for Microsoft BizTalk Server is currently the only Microsoft recommended and sponsored solution for ebXML Messaging. More information can be found by visiting and downloading the 30 day free trial version of the software, together with a complete documentation detailing all the functionalities of the product.
