Certification of Service-oriented eHealth Platforms - Derivation of Structured Criteria for Interoperability and Expandability

Martin Benedict, Martin Burwitz, Hannes Schlieter

Abstract

Certification of interoperability is an important quality measure, which can foster the success of eHealth projects. Often these projects test and certify interoperability for specific purposes. The achievement of long-term interoperability is often not in the scope of these projects. In this paper we describe the importance of expandability for the long-term interoperability. Further we show, how a structured criteria catalogue for the certification process can be derived for these two quality factors.
