This paper discusses a collaborative and innovative e-health system called EMOSNet, for the support of medical decision making in the case of amputated or mangled extremities. The goal of the proposed system is to provide communication and collaboration channels between orthopedists located in regional hospitals and special surgeons of the University Hospital of Larissa, in order to confront emergency orthopedic incidences. The main contribution of this work is the development of a suitable framework for the development of a collaborative and innovative e-health system. Using state of the art technology, we develop innovative services, contribute to standardization, interoperability and security issues and provide modeling and simulation techniques for educational purposes. More specifically, we describe a framework of e-health innovation and an overview of the design methodology that relate to e-health service innovation. Our methodology introduces a technological platform for the provision of services for the delivery of a number of e-health services, ranging from second-opinion request and collaboration among distant professionals to the support of medical decision making in the case of amputated or mangled extremities.
