Microsoft Renames “XDocs” to “InfoPath”; Supports CDA

Microsoft Corp. InfoPath , the new Office family application formerly code-named “XDocs,” now supports Clinical Document Architecture (CDA), a national XML standard for the healthcare industry. Built on XML, Microsoft InfoPath streamlines the process of gathering information through rich, dynamic forms and ensures that customers can reuse information across their organization. With InfoPath, hospitals, pharmaceutical companies and HMOs can capture vital information about patients within an InfoPath form that they create, validate the information for accuracy, and save it in a CDA-compliant file, which can be read and used by other back-end systems, such as hospital information systems, document management software, portals or other organizations. A physician filling out a patient’s diagnosis form could query an external knowledge base to identify the appropriate medication covered by the patient’s insurance, check for potential interactions with the other medications in the patient’s file, and submit the order to the patient’s local drugstore for the pharmacy to fill – all from within InfoPath. www.microsoft.com/office/preview/infopath

Entopia Introduces K-Bus

Entopia, Inc. unveiled Entopia K-Bus, a software platform that connects the information, people and resources of an organization through a multi-faceted metadata layer that is transparent to end-users. The result is relevant information — on demand — that considers not only the semantic value of content and information, but also the social activity around it and its organizational context. Coupled with enterprise repositories, applications and business processes, and built on J2EE architecture, the K-Bus solution builds knowledge assets out of existing content while information continues to reside in its original repositories such as file shares, email servers, Quantum (Entopia’s content management and collaboration suite), document management repositories, the intranet, the extranet and the Internet. The K-Bus enterprise knowledge infrastructure (EKI) automatically creates intelligent metadata by 1) semantically indexing content and data; 2) tracking the context, popularity and social activity surrounding this data in real-time; and 3) adding organizational and personal context. This metadata is the key to the “knowledge” available in the enterprise and. Entopia K-Bus is currently in beta testing. General availability of Entopia K-Bus will begin in May 2003. www.entopia.com
