Architecting Disparate eHealth Systems Interoperable through Web Services
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractInternet as eHealth Tool: Tele-Homecare is an active research field for providing preeminent acute medical homecare services to the patients. State-of-the-art telematic homecare platforms are usually afflicted with the problems of interoperability with their client Health Information Systems (HISs) regarding exchanging patient's medical information in order to provide factual Telemonitoring, Telediagnosis, and Teletreatment. In our research work, we investigated the application of Web Services, a new breed of distributed computing, which is becoming a de-facto standard for the automatic on-the-fly orchestration of readymade on-demand services in the field of eHealth to achieve interoperability among disparate HISs.
