This paper presents the design of a unifying infrastructure for clinical decision support systems (CDSSs) and medical data relating to the perinatal life cycle. The diverse CDSSs designed for deployment within the perinatal life cycle to improve care, such as Artificial Neural Networks and Case-Based Reasoners, are integrated using the eXtended Markup Language (XML) and are subsequently offered as a secure web service. These web services are accessible from anywhere within the hospital information system and from remote authorized sites. The goal of such an infrastructure is to provide integrated CDSS processing in a complex distributed environment, in order to support real-time physician decision-making. This design provides a novel web services infrastructure implementation and offers a strong case study for deploying and evaluating the web services paradigm within a health care environment.
