IHE Webinar Recording: Asynchronous AS4 Option Webinar


Integrating the Healthcare (IHE) has published the recording of a webinar exploring new Asynchronous AS4 Web Services Option for XCA, XCPD, XDR and XCDR Profiles. The use of As4 supports the scaling of document sharing between communities to a large numbers of gateways, Asynchronous Web Services Exchange is critical to realize a more efficient handling of latency and scale.

The webinar follows IHE’s publication of new Technical Framework Supplements including the AS4 message exchange specification. At the time of publication, IHE noted

Today, AS4 is the message exchange protocol promoted by the eDelivery building block of the Connecting Europe Facility (CEF). Consequently, CEF maintains the European implementation guidelines of the AS4 specification developed by the Member States within the e-SENS LSP. These implementation guidelines, also known as the e-SENS profile, provide a secure baseline for users and reduce the complexity of options available for vendors and implementers.

AS4 condenses in a single specification a series of well-known web-services specifications, such as WS-Security and SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) with Attachments. AS4 is typically used for the secure and reliable exchange of documents, attachments to these documents and data in general, and can be used in Business-to-Business (B2B), Business-to-Administration (B2A) and Administration-to-Administration (A2A) exchange contexts.

AS4 can be used in virtually every sector or business domain

IHE works to enable seamless and secure access to health information that is usable whenever and wherever needed. IHE is an initiative by healthcare professionals and industry to improve the way computer systems in healthcare share information around the world, and is a non-profit organisation.
