PSPAT will continue to be a proof of concept effort without focused research in the areas of interoperability of medical systems and additional work in the development of open source Web services based protocols appropriate for clinical models like surgery. Work in this area has been promising; although there is a need for a dedicated surgical extensible markup language that will make brokering information between surgery-based systems and technology relatively easy and inexpensive. This section will discuss the importance of Web services technology to the advancement of technology in surgery.
