Abstract

Currently, evolution of health services is strongly influenced by the development of information and communication technologies. Distribution of health services brings new challenges to computer systems, with regard to processing capability as well as to communications, storage and security. The proposal explained in this chapter is an architecture design to be easily adapted to advances in healthcare decentralization. It is intended to provide the capability to implement a global distribution of healthcare, even reaching the patient’s home, workplace or holiday hotel. This is a distributed architecture which is flexible to implement new functionalities and accessible from anywhere. The architecture is based on the paradigm of agents and defines the different types of agents that may form the system and their interactions.
