Release Notes for MDWS v2.0

Medical Domain Web Services (MDWS) (pronounced meadows) is a suite of Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) middle-tier web services that exposes medical domain functionality, Medical Domain Objects (MDO). MDWS is equipped with the capacity to virtualize any legacy Veterans Health Information Systems and Technology Architecture (VistA) Remote Procedure Call (RPC) as a web service. A web service is an Application Programming Interface (API), which uses Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), the standardized protocol to communicate with subscribed client applications.

The MDWS suite of web services provides the client application developer with common SOAP web services and documentation necessary to create client applications, which incorporate the organization’s business rules, as well as provide access to data from multiple VistA instances and other disparate data sources.
