In my discussions with engineers at Crosscheck Networks, I have come across an interesting use case in the health care industry where HL7 v3 - an ANSI health care standard modeling clinical, administrative, pharmacy, medical devices and imaging domains - is being deployed by the Dutch Government. The Dutch government's aggressive health care initiative in building a nationwide Health Information Broker (HIB) can serve as a good model for the current US Administration that is considering transforming US health care through nationwide electronic medical records (EMR) as one of its key policy initiatives.

In addition to checking against Schematrons, SOAPSimulator checks against a number of additional criteria to ensure that the right identity and security constructs are being used in the message requests.
1) Implementing Web Services in Dutch Health
2) Electronic Medical Records and Obama's Economic Plan
4) Web Service Enablement of HL7 v3
