myAvatar Web Services and SOA
myAvatar Web Services allows for interoperability with disparate applications.
As underlying Web services standards congeal and the technology matures, more and more organizations will be moving more deeply into Web services, and ultimately, service-oriented architectures (SOAs). Many hope to solve integration headaches, while others want to make better use of their current information technology resources.
myAvatar Web Services provides the technology to increase developer productivity and reduce costs of extending the myAvatar solution to interoperate more efficiently with other existing and disparate applications using industry standard, web-based technologies.
Now with myAvatar Web Services leverage your existing investment in people and technologies to:
- Better streamline your portfolio of internal applications, data, systems and people
- Eliminate or reduce manual data entry processes
- Solve complex integration issues
- Reduce the need for proprietary solutions
Web Service Modules
Netsmart currently offers several Web service modules that extend and enhance a variety of components or areas of functionality within the myAvatar RADplus modeling tool and the myAvatar Practice Management (PM) solution. Organizations seeking to build upon and enhance the modeling capabilities of the myAvatar RADplus tool can take advantage of the All-Modeled Options Web Service module which offers the utmost flexibility and extensibility of the product.
For components of the myAvatar that are core functions, Netsmart has created an initial set of Web services in the area of Identity Management and released the following set of Web service modules that can be purchased separately or as a complete package. The modules are:
- User Definition – Create User
- User Definition – Activate User
- User Definition – Deactivate User
- User Definition – Does User Exist
- User Definition – Is User Active
- User Definition – Generate Password
- User Role Definition – Get User Role List
- Practitioner Enrollment
In addition to the areas listed above a number of other Web services are available and in development.
Service-oriented architecture (SOA) is more than a flavor of the month within the technology world; it’s a seismic shift in thinking about the way organizations deploy and manage information technology within and between organizations and systems. Netsmart Technologies continues its quest of delivering the most comprehensive solutions utilizing the latest technologies and methods available to the marketplace.
