Abstract

The NIST HealthCare Standards Landscape (HCSL) web site is a project to develop and demonstrate a web-based repository of information (called "Landscape") on healthcare informatics standards and other related information. Users may navigate the web site, search and retrieve information on healthcare standards, on their development organization(s), on organizations adopting and using these standards, and other relevant healthcare standards' information. The Landscape was originally developed using an Oracle database on a Windows platform. To enable wider adoption of the Landscape application, it has been implemented using open source software with PostgreSQL and MySQL databases on Linux platform, as well as Oracle on Windows platform. This paper describes the implementation and the lessons learned in porting to open source databases. The HCSL was built as a 3-tier web-based application providing user and content access controls. It may be adopted for other applications by modifying the software and database tables accordingly.
