Abstract
(English)
The patients' clinical and healthcare data should virtually be available everywhere, both to provide a more efficient and effective medical approach to their pathologies, as well as to make public healthcare decision makers able to verify the efficacy and efficiency of the adopted healthcare processes. Unfortunately, customised solutions adopted by many local Health Information Systems in Italy make it difficult to share the stored data outside their own environment. In the last years, worldwide initiatives have aimed to overcome such sharing limitation. An important issue during the passage towards standardised, integrated information systems is the possible loss of previously collected data. The herein presented project realises a suitable architecture able to guarantee reliable, automatic, user-transparent storing and retrieval of information from both modern and legacy systems. The technical and management solutions provided by the project avoid data loss and overlapping, and allow data integration and organisation suitable for data-mining and data-warehousing analysis.
