2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- BEAWorld -- BEA Systems , a world leader in enterprise infrastructure software, today announced that AP-HM (Assistance Publique -- Hopitaux de Marseille) has chosen BEA WebLogic(R) Integration to support its IT modernization strategy and reengineering initiative designed to cope with the highly-challenging Hospital Reform "Plan Hopital 2007" launched by the French Ministry of Health which aims to modernize public and private hospitals.
As the Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region's largest Hospital Center and major employer, AP-HM is a large French Public Health Institution supported by the Faculte de Medecine of Marseille, comprised of four hospitals with an aggregate capacity of over 3,500 inpatients.
Consequently, AP-HM implemented a process reengineering and roadmap initiative and selected BEA Systems and Capgemini to develop an interoperability platform based on BEA WebLogic Integration.
As no packaged solution is comprehensive enough to meet its wide variety of needs, AP-HM opted for a Business Process Management approach based on a Service-Oriented Architecture and an interoperable infrastructure.
AP-HM has leveraged perpetually-reproducible architectural patterns and is now able to provide tailored service contracts; moreover, process automation has generated time and resource savings that have improved its functional organization.
