Medical Distributed Ubiquitous Service Applications



Medusa is a framework for the secure sharing of digital information in a natural and flexible way, following well established work processes. Topic maps are used as a generic data model to organize and exchange domain knowledge. The framework packages information in a way so that it can be delivered securely, for communication and data exchange it implements a peer- to-peer approach.

Scenarios in the area of public health care were analyzed to evaluate the benefit of the framework. A prototype application based on the proposed framework was developed that handles semantically enriched and restricted medical information of patients and manages fine grained access for physicians.



Prototypes for the Java platform, for mobile devices (via web services) and for the Mac OS X platform were developed. Below you'll find several screenshots of the prototype for Mac OS X:
