Rural at risk young people support service using ebXML in Holland

Dutch child welfare services are using ebXML messaging across 45 municipalities and 1 hospital to bring better care services to at risk youngsters in Holland. Over 7,000 care workers are connected on the "Verwijsindex" service and can share basic information. In conformance with privacy laws no personal information on the people or families are stored. The system however allows care workers to coordinate and check the status on youngsters who are up to 23 years old.

The system will be expanded to more regions next and Minister Rouvoet was on hand for the official launch of the new service in The Hague.

The ebXML approach brings many advantages for rural workers accessing systems remotely.
