Digital Libraries (DLs) in eHealth are composed of electronic artefacts that are generated and owned by different healthcare providers. A major characteristic of eHealth DLs is that information is under the control of the organisation where data has been produced. The electronic health record (EHR) of patients therefore consists of a set of distributed artefacts and cannot be materialised for organisational reasons. Rather, the EHR is a virtual entity. The virtual integration of an EHR is done… 
Electronic patient record (EPR) system in South Africa : information, storage, retrieval and share amongst clinicians
The adoption and use of technology in South African (SA) hospitals is not new. Some SA researchers have undertaken research on this topic with an aim towards improving existing health technologies at
Multi-Agent Systems for e-Health and the CASCOM Project
TLDR
Some of the main reasons why multi-agent systems are now considered one of the best solutions for the realization and deployment of advances e-health software are described.
Toward replication in grids for digital libraries with freshness and correctness guarantees
TLDR
The approach is to start with an accepted replication protocol for database clusters, namely PDBREP, and to adapt it to the grid and build a fully integrated and self‐managing replication subsystem for data grids that will provide all the above features.
Developing Smart Emergency Applications with Multi-Agent Systems
TLDR
Some of the main reasons why multi-agent systems are today considered one of the best technologies for the realization and deployment of advances for e-health applications and, in particular, of smart emergency applications are described.
Conservative re-use ensuring matches for service selection
TLDR
This work gives a declarative representation of services, and in particular of WSDL operations, that enables the application of techniques for reasoning about actions and change and shows how to enrich various kinds of match proposed in the literature so to produce substitutions that preserve goals.
1 . 2 Sample Application Scenario
TLDR
A novel approach to query by sketch where interactive paper and image similarity search are seamlessly combined, based on the iPaper/iServer system of ETH Zurich and the ISIS/OSIRIS content-based image retrieval system of the University of Basel.

TLDR
The specific requirements and problems for integration of information within hospitals are discussed and a software architecture which has been designed according to these requirements is presented, adapted to the demands on integration of replicated information within hospital information systems.
Hyperdatabase Infrastructure for Management and Search of Multimedia Collections
TLDR
This paper sketches an infrastructure that combines various information technologies like (mobile) databases, service-oriented architectures, peer-to-peer and grid computing, and illustrates how an example digital library application can work atop it.

TLDR
This work presents an organization-oriented super-peer network which represents the organizational structures of distributed digital libraries in a natural way and is able to integrate distributed resources as well as local devices.
A Novel Approach for Compound Document Matching

TLDR
This paper proposes a novel approach for compound document matching using a filter-and-refinement algorithm for similarity-based retrieval that increases the effectiveness by establishing only semantically meaningful matches and providing greater expressiveness in queries by restricting the number of allowed matches to a single query object.

RealPeer--A Framework for Simulation-Based Development of Peer-to-Peer Systems
TLDR
This work tries to bridge the gap by proposing a methodology and a framework for the simulation-based development of P2P systems and demonstrates the validity of the approach and the framework by constructing an example P2p application.
Speeding up IDM without Degradation of Retrieval Quality
TLDR
This paper presents an approach that applies several optimizations to decrease the retrieval time of IDM without degrading the quality of query results, and these techniques are not limited to IDM but can also be applied to other expensive distance measures.
