To perform research and experiment in enhancing the timeliness and efficiency of providing healthcare service in e-Healthcare, a modeling approach is designed and implemented to integrate a parking guidance system (PGS) with an electronic health record (EHR) system. The integrated system provides advanced services for two healthcare groups: 1) patients who need immediate urgent care, and 2) healthcare providers who perform emergency medical services and operations. By entering a zip code of a selected area and patient's basic data, the system would return the three most optimal urgent care providers in the selected area, from which the user of the system can choose and submit essential patient's data to; the system would then return three progressive levels of navigation information: 1) from home to hospital, 2) at hospital's parking facility, and 3) inside hospital; furthermore, the system would reserve a parking space and complete registration prior to the patient's arrival at the hospital's urgent care facility. To provide efficient and convenient e-healthcare services, the integrated system must be available on mobile devices; hence, the server has been implemented as a Web service server, and a mobile Web service client, along with its desktop counterpart, is a part of the integrated system. Lastly, this integrated system addresses various security issues in privacy, integrity and confidentiality of the patient's medical record data.
