Abstract:
ABSTRACT One of the major challenges confronting healthcare institutions in developing countries is the problem of interoperability of both the processes of care and data that are used within those processes. Failure of interoperability would result in repeated diagnostic testing, redundant record keeping, high travel cost associated with seeking and receiving healthcare in centres located far from patients as well as costly and substandard healthcare services. Healthcare organizations run different applications that are of heterogeneous standard which has made it difficult for them to collaborate and interact together. This has resulted in a number of specialized health service departments and specialties, each with its own practices, rules and organization. Thus it is necessary to look at healthcare interoperability from an overall system perspective. This lack of integration in the healthcare domain has affected the provision of quality healthcare services especially in the rural areas. Various e-Health technologies provide the tools to facilitate integration, but those tools must be used within a framework that integrates all users of the system across the various levels. This work presents an enterprise view to e-Healthcare service interoperability among individuals and organizations who are stakeholders in healthcare domain in Nigeria. The national interoperability middleware requirements were presented and the work integrates existing applications also known as legacy applications rather than replacing them with new applications. Keywords:- Healthcare, Interoperability, Data, Heterogeneous, e-Health, Middleware Requirements
