Abstract

This chapter is aimed at introducing the Semantic Web, the related common languages, and the Semantic Web Services Architecture as a hope for future information services architecture on the Web. In particular, the chapter will focus on the current and prospective (or practical and potential) contributions of the Semantic Web technologies in providing e-Health content and services to its potential users worldwide. To stay health-focused and to illustrate the potentials of the health related services, a real-life journey of a health consumer seeking health information services has been used as the context throughout this chapter. This consumer’s journey will help the readers to comprehend the superior aspects of the Semantic Web technologies as an emerging upgrade to the current physical architecture.
