"UCLA Medical Centre has been leveraging DB2 XML to keep more unstructured patient records online and provide more comprehensive health care. The hospital is experiencing the compression benefit reducing the amount of storage space for patient's medical records in XML by 50% today. In addition to the UCLA enterprise-wide medical record repository, there are three clinical applications currently under development and being re-architected to implement the DB2 9.7 scalable XML features at the core as a result of extensive collaboration with the IBM development team. The enhancements will allow ULCA to generate business intelligence using XML data to help meet patient care needs."
