ATLAS to Participate at HIMSS 2013 Interoperability Showcase

CALABASAS, Calif. --(Business Wire)--

Atlas Development Corporation today announced plans to participate in the HIMSS 2013 Interoperability Showcase, to be held at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center, La Nouvelle Ballroom Level 2, in New Orleans, LA, March 3-7, 2013.

The HIMSS Interoperability Showcase is part of the HIMSS 2013 Annual Conference and Exhibition. This year's keynote speakers include President Bill Clinton, 42nd President of the United States of America, and Eric J. Topol, Scripps Health and Professor of Genomics for The Scripps Research Institute.

Atlas Public Health has been working in partnership with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Public Health Data Standards Consortium, and Council of State and Territorial Epidemiologists (CSTE) in developing the technology to allow public health departments to receive case reports directly from hospital electronic health record (EHR) and laboratory systems. This technology has been successfully demonstrated in various pilot programs and is now available through Atlas Public Health's WorldCare suite of software.

During the HIMSS 2013 Interoperability Showcase, ATLAS will use its WorldCare suite of public health software, including EHR Gateway (News - Alert), and ATLAS' iOn Public Health eporting Service, to demonstrate how a health department can receive public health case reports and electronic lab reports (ELRs) from hospital systems by utilizing the standards outlined by Integrating the Healthcare Enterprise (IHE) initiative within the Patient Care Coordination Technical Framework.

WorldCare boasts a highly configurable surveillance and case management system that allows users to receive alerts and take immediate action to protect the public. "We are proud to be part of this showcase demonstrating the effectiveness of the IHE profiles in facilitating the vital communication between hospitals and public health agencies," states Mark Marostica, Atlas Public Health Vice President of Global Business Development. He continues, "Through our partnership with the CDC, ATLAS is able to keep our clients at the forefront of improving data interoperability between systems, while protecting the patient and community by utilizing our effective WorldCare solutions."

Oracle in Enterprise Communications

Most in the industry have heard of the acquisition of Acme Packet by Oracle. What you may not know is that Oracle has a number of telecommunications products including a UC suite, WebRTC Session Controller, and Operations monitoring tools. Oracle is pursuing both the enterprise and service provider.

Featured Whitepapers

WebRTC Security Concerns

This whitepaper covers two of the most relevant topics in communications industry today: WebRTC and security. We will introduce the problem of security in WebRTC including those traditional VoIP attacks that are going to be present in WebRTC services. Later we will mention ad-hoc WebRTC attacks and protection mechanisms, to close with an overview of identity management solutions.

Migrating Real Time Communications Services to the Web

In the Internet age, businesses that own fixed and mobile communication networks, including traditional Communications Service Providers (CSPs) of all kinds, are being challenged with some tough questions: How do we stay relevant to our customers?

Delivering Enterprise-Class Communications with WebRTC

WebRTC is an emerging industry standard for enabling Web browsers with real-time communications capabilities. It enables enterprises to enhance Web sites, empower BYOD users, and improve video collaboration and on-line meetings, to name but a few examples.

WebRTC Report Extract Reprint

This document examines the growing important of WebRTC, both generally and for telecom service providers. It considers the expanding range of use-cases, the multiple layers of interoperability likely to be desired by telcos, and some implications in terms of network integration and mobility.


Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services

The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.


The Oracle Communications WebRTC Session Controller enables communications service providers (CSPs) and enterprises to offer WebRTC services – from virtually any device, across virtually any network – with carrier-grade reliability and security.

- Summary


Communication Service Provider (CSP) voice service revenues continue to face pressure due to shifts in communication preferences and competition from non-traditional service providers. Voice communications are now often embedded into applications outside the domain of traditional telephony voice usage. CSPs have been challenged to effectively leverage and monetize new web-oriented communications technologies.
