A SYSTEM DESIGN FOR A TELE-MEDICINE HEALTH CARE SYSTEM
Telemedicine systems have been steadily increasing in number and scale over the past decades. This increasing trend intensifies the need for telemedicine in the era of national health care system. The increasing size of distributed telemedicine systems creates problem of data integration, vendor lock-in and interoperability. In this thesis, we state the above problems and solutions of current telemedicine system by showing an example of Tele-Wound TM architecture. To achieve this goal, we have set of requirements from a company named as A-B medicine in order to build a telemedicine application for them. Those set of requirements will be named as Tele-Wound TM application, which is the part of telemedicine system. This thesis presents mainly architecture of Tele-Wound TM which is being build as Service Oriented Architecture (SOA), because we believe that by the adoption of SOA several problems in today’s telemedicine system can be resolved. Currently several resources are complaining that users become limited to a single vendor due to announcement of new technology, so this thesis can at least presents the few solution of users problem. We provide a detailed description of requirement of Tele-Wound TM system, and then proceed to design of an architecture that could be used as an example to other related application. The particular architecture that we have designed is comprises of several web services. In addition to the specific results that we present, we feel that the collective wisdom provided by the theory, requirement, evaluation and discussion throughout this thesis provides valuable insight for others in the same area of research.
