    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

    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.
