Abstract

This chapter discusses how to extend the collaborative business process model with mobility and how to implement such a model in the “Medical Tourism” industry. The implementation discussion in this chapter is based within the context of the booming Indian Medical Tourism industry that is growing rapidly with reported annual growth rate of up to 30% over past few years. The collaboration between various available services like lodging, transport, and hospital through separate domains, in order to provide a unified service to the potential client, is considered in this chapter. The resultant architecture can be considered as a Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) which can provide immense value during implementation.
