[ClickPress, Fri Feb 23 2007] eHealth specialist InterComponentWare AG (ICW) presents its new ICW Developer Network (IDN) at HIMSS 2007: on http://idn.icw-global.com, an open knowledge network of experts by ICW and its partners will be created. The IDN will be the primary communication platform for technical experts and software developers seeking to connect isolated healthcare IT applications.
On the ICW Developer Network, visitors quickly get an overview about how existing practice management, pharmacy and hospital information systems can be connected fast and easily with ICW connectivity solutions. Software developers can access e.g. tutorials, code examples and forums pertaining to the ICW hospital connectivity solution, the LifeSensor personal health record and the ICW electronic health card system. For further services such as accessing training materials and technical whitepapers or downloading programming code, a simple registration is required first. In the IDN Forum, registered users can post questions or answer questions of others.
Thomas Liebscher, ICW Chief Technology Officer: “The ICW Developer Network is a prime example of the openness of ICW’s technologies and solutions:
by publishing product interfaces and offering comprehensive support services for interested developers, ICW emphasizes its permanent commitment to an open, interoperable platform in the healthcare IT sector.”
With the ICW Developer Network, manufacturers of primary healthcare systems can integrate their software quickly and easily via ICW’s solutions by accessing all necessary information, tutorials, application examples, and a Software Development Kit. By collaborating with other experts in forums they can also benefit from the shared experience of other manufacturers with similar tasks.
