Abstract:

This paper presents results from a demonstration project of nationwide exchange of health data for the home care of diabetic patients. A consortium of industry, academic, and health care partners has developed reusable middleware components integrated using the HOLON architecture. Engineering approaches for multi-organization systems development, lessons learned in developing layered object-oriented systems, security and confidentiality considerations, and functionality for nationwide telemedicine applications are discussed.
