Microsoft – SWOT studie Amalga Belgische markt

Microsoft Amalga is an integrated and policy-oriented data warehouse system used in a number of large hospitals in the U.S. The added value of Amalga is that it connects the many individual IT systems existing in the hospital and that it extracts information from these systems. By means of a programmable parser, all data from these individual systems are converted into hl7 through a hl7 encoding. This way it is possible to group, present and analyse these data. Consequently you get a store of information on all the systems and services.
