Information infrastructure for healthcare is undergoing a transformational shift in the way it is perceived and used by health professionals. This is driven by the need to unify patient records seamlessly, and integrate emerging technologies in the Sensor-Actor Network (SANET) realm that incorporate patient sensory systems such as wireless sensor networks and body-area networks. By harnessing The Open Group Architecture Framework (TOGAF), it ensures integrity is considered throughout development processes by analyzing the problem space and scenarios, constraints, requirements, risks, enablers and inhibitors of the legacy application architectures. The proposed architecture with TOGAF components incorporating SANETs addresses the need to harmonize legacy operations in a consistent manner with industry best practice to ensure universal patient records are comprehensive and secure, thus protecting against identity theft and adhering to privacy regulation compliance.
