W3-EMRS is an architecture designed to access clinical data from remote heterogeneous electronic medical record system (EMRS) databases. We describe the technologies used in an experimental implementation of W3-EMRS that concurrently collects data from several sources and presents them in an integrated set of views. After describing some of the organizational constraints, the architectural decision, implementation methodology, and operation of the completed project are discussed.
