In healthcare domain there is a plethora of health information but no mechanism of satisfying customized users' requirements and providing demand oriented information. Healthcare domain is facing challenge of finding healthcare information that meets user requirements. Semantics can provide interoperable, automated and seamlessly meaningful communication for healthcare domain. Healthcare information is increasing with the increase of medical databases over the internet. In this matter provision of right information to appropriate users over the web is a great challenge. Semantic web technologies can address this issue by ensuring extensible, flexible and efficient information discovery related to diseases and clinical processes. We proposed a semantic registry that will be a service registry as well as metadata registry. It will manage healthcare information and processes in a consistent way in compliance with emerging international standards and technical specifications. We evaluate our system through Patient Registration Scenario implemented semantically through our OWL-S framework.
