Abstract [en]

With the fast development of information technology, traditional healthcare is evolving to a more digital and electronic stage. Electronic HealthRecord (EHR) is residents’ basic information and health care relatedinformation conforming to standard. It can not only provide usefulinformation to medical workers, but also exchange resources with otherinformation systems. But with the growing complexity of electronichealth record data sources, it becomes a big challenge to set up a structurewhich allows different types of data sharing and exchanging inmulti-platform applications. It’s even more important to find out amethod to support great amount of users from different applicationplatform to sharing and exchanging data at the same time.In this paper, we proposed a distributed electronic health record systembased on middleware to address the problem. Both permanent and realtimedata should pass through the middleware provided by the system,and will be transformed into standard format for storage. Multi-threadand distributed server group design will let the system be more flexibleand scalable, and will be able to provide service to users concurrently.The system creates a standard data format for data transferring andstorage. All raw data collected from different kinds of sensor system willbe formatted with application programming interface (API) or softwaredevelopment kit (SDK) system provided before upload to the system.Encryption methods are also implemented to ensure data security andprivacy protection.
