    The healthcare system in Denmark is well known for its high level of IT support and interoperability. The Danish healthcare system integrates several central technological solutions across hospital information and electronic medical record systems throughout Denmark. Important business drivers for this high level of interoperability include unique citizen ID numbers and a publicly funded healthcare system in which hospital reimbursements are based on electronic submissions of diagnosis and procedure codes to a central register.

    This article describes a distributed e-healthcare system that uses the service-oriented architecture as a means of designing, implementing, and managing healthcare services. Medical monitoring devices worn by the patient, and frequent electronic communication between the patient and a nurse, can ensure that the prescribed treatment is being followed and that the patient is making good progress. The e-healthcare system described here can be readily extended to other healthcare professionals, including medical technicians who perform and report tests and analyses requested by physicians. In addition, the system can be interfaced to other applications that provide information on medications and dosages and warn of interactions between medications. Finally, it can be interfaced to drug-delivery devices that prompt and monitor the regular and timely consumption of medications. View full abstract»

    We all have IT systems of dubious heritage - systems that we don't fully understand or perhaps even know all of the components involved. Yet, we continually build add-ons that work well enough that we'd never consider replacing them for fear of breaking something that we didn't even know was connected. Enter the need for enterprise architecture. View full abstract»
