The Department of Health and Human Services has selected Sun's open source technologies as the backbone of its NHIN-CONNECT initiative.
The goal of NHIN is to support the secure exchange of interoperable health information within the federal government and with the tribal, state, local and private sectors to enable increased efficiency, better patient care and improved population health.
NHIN-CONNECT uses Sun's GlassFish™ open source application platform technology, the Java™ Composite Application Platform Suite (CAPS) SOA Platform, and the Sun Java™ Identity Management suite.
