The number and type of digital sources storing healthcare data is increasing more and more, rising the problem of collecting actually dispersed information about a single patient. In this paper we propose an agent-based system to support integration of health-related data extracted from both structured (HIS) and semi-structured (websites and social networks) sources. Integrated data are exported in HL7 format to finally feed personal health record (PHR).
