Process Based Data Logistics: Data Integration for Healthcare Applications
Data integration in medical applications is a crucial and sensitive task. It turns out that there are rigid factors like heterogeneous, distributed data sources, security, and complex, dynamically changing application requirements that require a highly sophisticated and flexible data integration concept which – in a final stage – has to cover the whole healthcare landscape. We have developed a process based data logistic approach that is coping with these requirements. It is based on process technology including workflow management and data management technology including ontologies and terminology management. In this paper we present this novel approach and discuss a first application scenario in a clinical application.
