GlassFish ESB Saving Lives?

As a technology vendor, it is always interesting to see what our customers are using our technology to solve. Some projects are interesting, others border on the mundane, and yet others really have the potential to change the world. The Nationwide Health Information Network (NHIN) project is one of those that will have a dramatic and positive impact to millions of people. 

Imagine the possibilies and lives that will be saved by having health care records being shared between providers. Suddenly going on vacation and having to go to a strange hospital will be much safer: the doctors there will know about your ailments, drug interactions, even if you can't communicate with them. Deaths due to drugs being prescribed to patients that are alergic to them will hopefully decrease because the drug allergy information will be shared across providers. Naturally this is a complex problem to solve with many issues around privacy and security, but I am very happy to know that GlassFish ESB is at the heart of the solution.
