Abstract

Designing patient-centric healthcare systems which consider the smart integration of distributed medical data is challenging. This includes handling numerous architectural dependencies and requirements as a result of blending a variety of future generation technologies. Examples of recent approaches are proposals of a unified format for medical records to facilitate efficient healthcare provision, transparent data access control using blockchain technology, and emergent authentication mechanisms and privacy-preserving techniques for data analytics. The Serums project proposes an innovative design for a Smart Health Centre System in a distributed development effort. The goal is a comprehensive solution for integration and access of transnational medical records. This paper focuses on the architectural design workflow as a way of delivering artefacts for development iterations and contribute towards module integration planning in the software development process. Our experience shows that in data integration projects for healthcare provision, system architects and developers can profit from the designed viewpoints as artefacts to reveal integration challenges and highlight quality attributes.
